5.0 out of 5 stars A SUPERIOR KJV IN ALL RESPECTS March 19 2004
The Cameo Reference Bible by Cambridge Press is an excellent choice if you want a quality KJV that is going to be used, carried and cherished. First, the Calf-skin leather cover is second to none. It requires no breaking in and it lays flat and easily open on the first use. Unlike some of the horribly cheap leather used in Thomas Nelson or Zondervan Bibles the Cambridge Calfskin cover will stand up to prolonged use. Second, the 8 Point type is large enough to be read without eye strain and is not too big to prevent the Bible to be easily carried in a gymbag or purse (not that I carry a purse - I am just making an example). Also the type used is a older style that has the charm and nostalgia of the Bibles of the 19th century - it is pleasing to the eye. Third, the India Paper makes turning pages a pleasure and a pain free experience. As some of you have discovered some cheaper bibles use low-quality paper that bends, creases, and tears easily over long term use. The India paper used in this Bible is durable and will hold up to hard wear. Lastly, if you are a KJV purist you will be pleased to know that this King James Bible text is the superior 1769 Oxford Standard Edition. This edition is THE DEFINITIVE EDITION of the King James Bible as it bore the fruition of years of scholarship and textual refinement. Some of the modern American corrupt and violated versions of the KJV that have been "updated" and "Americanized" by some publishers have unsound and biased spelling and punctuation. If you dig a little deep in your wallet and purchase this Bible it will be a very sound investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Bible by Cambridge Sept. 28 2003
By lodi123
I just received this Cameo Wide Margin (in Calfskin leather) in the mail, and I love it. Out of print for several years, but now back due to popular demand (and also perhaps to my many emails to the various international Cambridge Presses searching for one of the old ones), this newly released KJV Cameo Wide-Margin Bible (KWMC257) is a superb edition. I currently have about 40 Bibles, half of them in leather, including ones by Oxford, Zondervan, Riverside, Nelson, World, etc., and this Cambridge Bible is, in my opinion, the BEST all-around KJV Bible you can get today, with the Oxford KJV Brevier Clarendon Wide Margin (W1794syx) running a very close second. The Oxford W-M has the same quality Calfskin leather and Smythe-sewing as this Cameo W-M, and better cross-references, but for some reason the powers-that-be at Oxford didn't feel like putting in a concordance, probably because of size constraints. While the Oxford W-M has roomier margins, as well as the verse outlines at the head of each chapter, which the Cambridge W-M lacks, the Cambridge has the the 20-odd page preface by the 1611 Translation Committee, the self-pronouncing-names feature, and a fine concordance (152 pages), all of which the Oxford lacks. The Cambridge has nearly double the maps the Oxford has, too. I find the font used for the Cameo(Petit Medieval Clarendon) superior to that used for Cambridge's other KJV Wide Margin, the Concord (Times Semi-bold), which I find too cumbersome to lug to church. The only criticism I would have for the format of the Cameo W-M is the small center margins, almost impossible to write in, which is why Cambridge came out with the Concord W-M. Read more ›

I also have one of the old Cameo Wide Margin editions in Berkshire (pigskin) leather, and this new one, though having a thinner cover, has more maps than the old one, plus a presentation page, and nice art-gilt edges. Bottom line: if you want a quality leather, KJV Bible, then this Cameo Wide Margin is the Bible you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bible Sept. 27 2005
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great Bible. My husband wanted a large margin, and I tried several others, and they were huge. This one is perfect, and I got if for $20 cheaper than my local bookstore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best KJV Out There June 19 2013
By Daniel Dellar - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There is not a better self-contained KJV Bible on the market today. The references are only in the center column, so they do not distract from reading if that's all you want to do. The glossary, concordance and map sections are excellent for their size. No batteries to die, no screen brightness issues, no ads or spam, no software upgrades, and no Google or government monitoring which verses you are reading. I wish more people knew about these devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Bible Nov. 18 2005
By Rev. Christopher McKeon - Published on Amazon.com
This Bible is for a person wanting to study the bible. Write notes by the text. This Bible is the best compared to the others made by other publishers. The Cambridge text is a exact copy from the orignial KJV made in 1611. It is a very in-depth bible not a good first bible. It has 2 ribbon markers to mark two places. It is authenic leather. The Bible is worth the price for a intermediate to a experienced studying of the bible. This particular bible is about a college rating reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars dissapointed March 8 2006
By Randy Starr - Published on Amazon.com
I think this is the best Bible that money can buy however, I am dissapoined with the print. Almost every page I have read so far has letters that are a "blot" of ink instead of the letter and words that run into each other without a space. I would not have paid $75.00 for this if I new that in advance.
