  • The first ever digitally typeset edition with newly redrawn colour maps, beautifully bound in real Moroccan leather with gilt edges. This edition brings together the very best of three Douay-Rheims Editions:

    The Old and New Testaments - from the 1899 edition published by John Murphy Company, Baltimore, Maryland. Imprimatur: James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore.

    The Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been beautifully retypeset, faithfully to reproduce the original 1899 Gibbons edition. No one can fault the quality and authenticity of the Douay-Rheims Bible, but all previous editions have had to compromise on the quality of the text printing. Not so with this new edition, which takes advantage of the very latest in digital technology to ensure that throughout the Bible, the text is always crystal clear.

    No more blotches or scratched out text, making you wonder what is being said. In fact, this is the first time ever that the Douay-Rheims has been digitally typeset! Both the Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been lovingly typeset line by line in the classic Century Expanded font, which was used in the 1899 original, thus faithfully reproducing the original edition.

    The Family Register pages have also been digitally typeset and redrawn.

    Engravings - These beautiful engravings recreate key moments in Biblical History. In this edition, all thirty-two engravings from the 1941 edition published by The Douay Bible House, New York, have been carefully remastered and enhanced. Imprimatur: Francis J. Spellman, D.D., Archbishop of New York.

    Black leather flexcover. 1512 pages.
