The first ever digitally typeset edition with newly redrawn colour maps, beautifully bound in leather with gilt edges. The text is set in classic Century Expanded Font, 10.5pt. The bible is approximately 7x10. 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. This new edition, takes advantage of the very latest in digital technology to ensure that throughout the Bible, the text is always crystal clear. 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. 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. These thirty-two beautiful engravings have been scanned and digitally retouched, and their captions have been retypeset and corrected to match the appropriate verses in the Bible text. Modern maps were not considered suitable for this edition, and so an artist was commissioned to reproduce the eleven beautiful maps from the 1911 edition published by Wm. Aleiter Co., Catholic Supply House, Indianapolis. Imprimatur: John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York.
