    I have one and no they're not. Lot's of broken type, leather quality is not that great.

    Spend 200 and get an Allan. :laugh: :thumbsup:

    Yes, also have an Oxford Genuine Morroco. It's like having a bonded leather Bible compared to the Allan.

    I've had a couple of each, in the wide margin editions. They all have done well. Only problem after some years the pages are all full of notes and I have to get another one. But for lasting and a lot of use I have a Ryrie Study Bible, KJV by Moody that I bought in the 70's and it is still going strong. I take it to church when I'm not speaking, easy to read and room for notes. Also have a Scofield by Oxford with I use a good amount and I bought it around 1967.
    I just had a person last year give me an Allen KJV and it seems to be a nice Bible. But I haven't begun to use it yet.

    A 1945 copy of a Cambridge KJV. Still going strong, except a few pages have come free (Gen 26). It has been my study and preaching Bible, loaded with notes and corrections.

    Cheers,

    Jim
