Description

This classic Cambridge edition of the King James Version is now reissued in a variety of colours and binding materials to satisfy today's continuing demand for high-quality editions of the KJV in an eminently portable format. Cambridge's Pitt Bibles were originally launched in the 1930s, in the wake of the typographic revival which took place in England after the first world war. They were notable for their slimness - achieved by using a variant of the Times New Roman typeface, specially cut by the famous Times typographer Stanley Morison for Cambridge University Press. The result - Times Semi-bold - is the typeface also later used in the acclaimed Concord edition. The Pitt Minion Reference edition was also the first Bible to employ the innovative Cambridge bold-figure cross-reference system (also a feature of the Concord editions). All in all, it is a neat and elegant book, easy to slip into a pocket or purse. It comes in a range of bonded and real leathers and a variety of colours, together with a ribbon marker and presentation page.show more
