The Cambridge Family Chronicle Bible has been designed and produced as a Bible to enjoy for generations. It combines the best typographic design with the highest standards of printing and bookbinding. The majestic text of the King James Bible is presented in a typesetting inspired by the legendary Baskerville Bible, and the words of Scripture are brought to life with 221 engravings by 19th century illustrator Gustave Dore - painstakingly reproduced for this edition from the original printings. Drawing on the glories of the past, but looking to the future too, the Bible incorporates a unique 14-page family chronicle, allowing owners to record up to six generations of family history and tell their family story for years to come. The Bible is printed on paper selected for its strength and durability and two of Dore's impressive illustrations are enlarged on the endpapers to highlight their intricate detail. This cloth-bound Bible has a contemporary look, with dramatic foil blocking showing 'fire and water' detail from one of Dore's woodcuts. The volume is protected by an attractive blue and orange slipcase.
