Reviews - What do customers think about KJV Pitt Minion Reference Green French Morocco R183?
Very Nice little bible Sep 26, 2007
This KJV Pitt Minion in the Brown Goatskin leather is a beautiful Bible. The leather is soft, supple, and wonderful to hold. However, I like the sturdiness of the French Moroccan leather better. The type in this Pitt Minion is very clear and readable, unlike that in the NIV edition. It does not lay flat the way it should, but I understand that it will eventually do so through normal use. One problem, as others have noted, is that the inner margin is too narrow and you have to pull it back more in order to read the text. This problem should correct itself through normal use and time, supposedly. You should also know that this KJV pitt does not include a concordance, but it does have nice cross references in the text.
Great quality Bible Feb 8, 2007
Bible is wonderful morrocan leather and nice compact easy to read print. The only thing wrong with this bible is as others have stated, the inner margin is way to small. You definetly have to purposely bend the Bible to see the print in the middle. It is getting a little bit better with use but they definitely need to put some more space in the middle margin. I am able to use this as my main day to day bible though and am all in all very happy with it.
Great for travel, too compressed for main Bible Sep 9, 2006
I was looking for a replacement Bible for my current NKJV slimline Bible for daily use. I wanted references (which my current Bible doesn't have), leather binding, slim, and if KJV, I didn't want the pronunciation key in line with the text.
I really like this Bible and it seems to have all the features I wanted. The binding is beautiful. The leather feel is nice and flexible. The font is nice and the red-letter color does not detract from the readability. It has references and is slim and it has a pronunciation table at the beginning of the Bible, so I don't have to try to skip over the symbols that are not part of the English language as I read. The pages of this Bible are a bit thicker (better quality) than my current slimline, so they should be more lasting.
My main problem with the Bible was readability. The size of the Bible itself is a bit smaller than listed on the description, since the dimensions are for the box the Bible comes in. The page dimentions are 6.8" x 4.8" x 0.75", which is smaller than I expected. In order to use slightly thicker paper (a good thing), the text spacing is quite reduced. This would not be bad, except for the fact that the font is also small. The font is readable (I have 20/20), but a bit small for reading in bed at night. As another reviewer mentioned, the inside margin at the binding is too small (it is narrower than the ribbon included with the Bible). It is also narrower than the outside margin. This makes it difficult to read unless I press on the pages to open the binding. One of my pet peeves with reading books is to not press the binding, so this goes against one of my main practices when reading books in general. I would have loved this Bible if it were 1 to 1.5 inches taller and proportionally wider while enlarging the font a bit to keep the current layout. Also, make the inside margin wider! If this were the case, the Bible would be perfect.
Bottom line, I love the Bible, but I won't be able to use it as my daily Bible, so although I am torn about it, I am sending it back.
Excellent, One Notable Flaw Mar 27, 2006
Recently purchased the KJV Pitt Minion Goatskin in Black. What I like: Goatskin is a treat! This fine grained, glove soft leather is exceptionally smooth and supple. Care must be taken when searching for a reference not to bend the cover back along with the pages (as is unfortunately a habit among many Americans). This leather is thin enough that it bubbles and creases if mishandled in this way. Paper is of the highest quality. Although exceptionally thin, there is very little shadow through from the opposite page's type. This allows this little volume to measure in at just 3/4" I love the art gilt edging. Those who have pre-1970's Bibles are familiar with the red/gold edging. The size is just right. This Bible is identical in size to my Day-timer binder, allowing it to slip into a briefcase or handbag. I found the smaller Bibles on the market were much thicker, actually taking up more room. It fits nicely into a desk drawer, too. Of note: There is no Bible cover on the market sized to this Bible. Because of it's soft binding, you will want to keep the box or, as I did, stitch up a small fabric envelope to protect it when travelling. The type is comfortably sized at 6.5 point. I can read without my glasses (20/60 vision). Because of the font, I find this Bible as easy to read as my larger Life Application Bible. I was pleasantly surprised to find that each paragraph begins with the first word or two in capitals. Since I often read several chapters at a sitting in this Bible, I find this very helpful. Except in the very beginning and end of the Bible, this particular edition stays open without being held, BUT... What I don't like: The binding is such that the inner column on each page cannot be read easily. It cannot be read at all in most portions of the Bible without forcing the binding open. After corresponding with Baker Books (the U.S. company that handles Cambridge Bibles), I have been assured that the binding will loosen with age and this will not continue to be a problem. I find it notable that the least expensive "gift Bibles" on the market leave a sufficient margin so that words are not caught in the binding. I would be willing to sacrifice the inner "reference" column in order to free up the center copy. I will revise this review if I find that 1) The Bible does indeed loosen after several months use or 2) That I have purchased a volume that is not up to the usual standard. Since I purchased mine over the internet, I have not had the opportunity to compare it to any other. Only one bookstore in another part of my state carries this particular volume, so I will have to wait to see how mine compares until I make it down there. The two other things that I find odd, though not necessarily a problem are as follows: There are several pages prior to Genesis 1 with the pronunciations of every difficult name/place in the Bible. This is presumably to aid the reader without cluttering up the text with phonetic markings. There are a series of alpha-numeric codes in the bottom margin throughout the Bible that I can only assume identify the signatures (smaller "books" sewn together to form the entire volume). Although small, these are a bit perplexing in a book of this quality. Overall: This Bible is a joy to use. It is everything my Life Application Study Bible is not -- compact, lightweight, and straightforward. The price is such that only those who have a love for fine books will be willing to invest in this volume, but it is currently marketed in several other far less expensive bindings for those who like the size but not the price! I would not recommend this Bible for those who are looking for a true "travel" Bible as it does not have a zipper or snap flap to protect the pages. Those who treasure older Bibles will love the look and feel of this particular edition, as it retains the feel and quality of the Bibles of bygone times. I will update this review regarding the center margin/binding "problem" as soon as it is resolved.
Excellent carry bible Feb 2, 2006
Having never seen one of the Camberage Pitt Minion Reference Bibles, I didn't quite know what to expect. The quality of this book is one of the best I've seen. It is small, but not too small. The print is small but easy to read. There are no frills to speak of except the column cross reference, which is adeqate, but not as good as a Thompson xref. The lack of markers over words make the xref a little more challenging to use, but adds to the readability of the main text. The goatskin is really soft and supple. Everyone who sees it recognizes it as a quality piece from the start. I can't imagine a better carry bible to own.
