I got this Bible for Christmas, it met all my expectations. The only issue is the pages are quite thin, but this is not to much of an issue considering the quality and elegance of the Bible... Great Product
I bought this for my husband for Christmas but ended up giving it to him already. He loves it! He claims its the perfect size and easy for him to read. He just had to learn his roman numerals past ten haha!
I just received my 1611 King James Bible today and a few things struck soon after opening the box. The Bible is rather small in size which of course lends itself to rather small type. I understand the printing process very well and the fact that it is a combination of set type and digitized images doesn't restrict the potential size of the book in any way. I would have been more than happy to have paid more for a larger book with a larger point size type. The point size may be 8pt.
The other thing that that got my attentional was the feel of the genuine leather. It may have the lasting qualities of genuine leather but I have many bonded leather Bibles that have a much more supple and quality feel.
If the above mentioned were corrected, I think I'd take this bible to the grave with me. I have to say I really enjoy reading it and comparing it to the other versions I have (and they are many) so far I think it stands up to the them as a standard for them to be judged by. When you look at the style and layout of the pages, you feel like you've been transported back in time. Kind of spiritual.
Frankly, I was disappointed in the quality of the cover/binding on this bible. It is very thin leather, laminated onto cardboard. I do not think that the quality met the description from which I made the purchase, nor my expectations at the price. Too, the paper in the bible are very, very thin. If it were not ordered with engraving, I would have returned. This was bought as a gift to a valued member for great services, and not the quality expected for this occasion.
