This ruggedly bound and clearly printed text edition of the Authorised "King James" Version (A.V.) of the Bible is commendable for those seeking a text Bible (i.e., without cross-references and marginal readings) to carry about, without having to worry unduly about damaging it. This ruggedness (and its clear printing) also make it suitable as a "pew" edition for use by worshippers of all ages. This is a normally full-size monograph, not one in any particularly small format, but one that is not bulky, either; it is a very practical edition to carry about when particularly small dimensions are not an overridingly important factor (as they sometimes legitimately are). Some useful fast-reference features are included (a workable but far from exhaustive concordance, indexed maps, and others). Alas, the A.V.`s Apocrypha is lacking (accounting for this review`s four stars rather than five-star rating), which is something of an irritation for Catholics (the use of the A.V. by whom now, apparently, is authorised by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops) and for many Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, or Lutheran readers.
The data on this edition as Amazon's U.S., Canadian, and U.K. WWW sites include, for each of them, a serious error regarding the indication of the volume`s pagination. The multiple page numbering is as follows:  unnumbered prelim. p. on glossy stock,  other unnumbered prelim. p., 1130, 89 p. + indexed col. map section on unnumbered final pages.
Zondervan`s A.V. Bibles have some irritating, albeit very minor departures from the official Cambridge and Oxford standard texts, so if one is citing a verse in writing, it is better to verify any verse from a British edition of the A.V., especially from those published and/or printed by the Cambridge University Press or the Trinitarain Bible Society, with superbly faithful texts. However, for more everyday use, this edition of the A.V. Bible is a convenient and durable, easily legible one to have.
