This is the Pure Cambridge Edition. The PCE is the best edition of the KJV. Some of the editions published by Cambridge vary from the PCE in the spelling of some words, and in capitalization, but the PCE, which is the edition of the KJV in this Bible, is the standard. The text in this Bible is bold, and easy to read, but the Bible is small and compact enough to take anywhere. It has some maps in the back of the Bible, which show the extent of Israel under Solomon and David, as well as the travels of Paul, the division between Judah and Israel, topographical maps, and a map that shows the extent of the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian empires, and some others.
I bought this Bible as I believed from the reviews that it was a Pure Cambridge Edition. I'm sure it was once, but it no longer is. The contents of this King James Bible must therefore have been altered since the earlier reviews which say it used to be PCE. This is exactly how so many other PCE KJV Bibles were altered as well. They keep the same product numbers yet change whats inside. Not good. This Bible is NOT Pure Cambridge Edition.
If the cover is leather, it is cheap, thin, bonded leather that feels more like board. It is somewhat larger than a typical pocket edition. Printed in China. .
This review is of a bonded leather Collins Bible, which is presented in a wonderful cloth covered, and hard, case. The bible itself is quite sturdily made, with good quality paper; but I have two main points against it: one the lesser, the other greater. The first, lesser point; is that this is made with bonded leather - and I can feel the difference... Granted, though, the price is very reasonable, and one does not generally expect true leather in this price range. But, secondly, the greater; the type size for the print is a shade too small. KJV bibles are typically presented in a verse by verse format - as this one is - instead of the paragraph format one customarily encounters in other translations; and one must not only consider the point type, when remarking on the aesthetics of a certain bible, but, additionally, the spacing between lines and columns, and the style of the print itself. It is on the latter concerns that this Collins bible actually does not fair too well; that is to say the text is not as gracefully presented as it should be. This is a delicate, but to a degree personal, concern; however, I have seen Collins do better. For those interested, this review pertains to The Holy Bible, Authorized KJV, Collins, ISBN-13: 978-0007259762.

I am always wary of things manufactured in China as the Chinese are reknowned for putting lead or other toxins in their products. This was ordered from the UK, but printed and produced in China. I ordered some journals from China a couple of years ago that were recalled because they did have lead in the cover material. Should I read this bible with gloves on? :)
Perfect personal size with just words, no references.
I love it..
Not only did it exceed my expectations with print clarity and delivery at date specified, but it also came in a boxed cover! So nice!!
Wonderful for audio listening and quick pleasure!
