This classic Cambridge edition of the King James Version is noted for its economical but elegant typeface and slimline form. 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 Pitt Minion Reference edition was the first Bible to employ the innovative Cambridge bold-figure cross-reference system. This is a neat and elegant book, easy to slip into a pocket or purse. It is bound in burgundy bonded leather and has a ribbon marker and presentation page.
