CARY GRAPHIC ARTS COLLECTION
Leaf from the Rogers Oxford Lectern Bible,
King James Version printing in a special cutting of 'Centaur' type by Bruce Rogers, who also established the format, typographical layout, and for six years supervised the printing at the University Press. A unique copy of this Bible, printed on special paper was presented by Mr. Rogers to Library of Congress. The edition was limited to two hundred copies. It is a Bible in the 'Great Tradition,' and equals if it does not excel, any other Bible produced since the invention of printing, in beauty, dignity, and legibility. This is the supreme achievement of the greatest contemporary typographer.
