Product Description

The Old and New Testaments - from the 1899 edition published by John Murphy Company, Baltimore, Maryland. Imprimatur: James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore (the whole revised and diligently compared with the latin Vulgate by the Servant of God Bishop Richard Challoner). The Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been beautifully retypeset, faithfully to reproduce the original 1899 Gibbons edition. The text is set in the classic Century Expanded font, which was originally used in the 1899 edition, and has been lovingly typed line by line to represent exactly the original edition. The Family Register pages have also been digitally typeset and redrawn.

    This has always been the official Bible for the Catholic Church that the Priests from many centuries ago were

    allowed to read, yet not reccommended for the Catholic

    congregations to read, So now that the church is more open about this I reccommend this version of the

    Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible to my Catholic friends.

    I bought one of these back in 2007, from a different vendor (i.e., not CBD). First of all, if you are expecting genuine leather, you might check with customer service to see if Baronius has gone back to genuine leather for this Bible. When I bought mine in 2007, they had switched to bonded leather, although it was still being advertised as genuine leather by the vendor. However, the Bible is still Smyth-sewn and quite well made. The text is very small (6 or 6.5 point), but still quite readable. The paper is off-white, which seems to be a factor in making it more readable. The edition I have has three Papal Encyclicals related to the Holy Scriptures (hopefully they have been retained), which I found to be of great interest, even though I am not Catholic. The re-typing and digital restoration have eliminated the "grainy" appearance that is often seen in reprints - the type and other contents are VERY clean.
