The new bible is 6" x 9" and 1632 pages. That is more than the old one because the font is larger. It is exactly the same text, just more readable.

Even after all of the modern "revisions" of the bible that are now available to Catholics, many still think that the Douay-Rheims version, (the only English translation of the Catholic Vulgate bible in use for almost 400 years) is the very best ever produced. We at Loreto agree that what was good enough for thirty generations of English-speaking  Catholics and countless Saints and Matyrs is still good enough for us. We are proud to offer this beautiful genuine bonded leather hardbound edition for only $44.95! The text is clear and easy to read and the two satin ribbons mark the pages where your daily reading is to begin. This Bible fills the need for a small (6" x 9" x 1.5") good quality hardbound Douay-Rheims bible. It is a perfect gift for Christmas, First Communions, Confirmations, weddings, birthdays, etc. and is also great for those who want a portable bible which is legible, durable, and handsome.

i have to admit that the maps are a big let down and the worst thing of all is the picture of Pentecost-take it out!it has Our Lady as a OLD FAT WOMAN!!!she was NEVER OLD and NEVER will be.however i liked how Her children were holding on to Her as the Holy Spirit came because they were scared and hid behind their Mother.please improve the copying of the maps and the Pentecost picture and also the family record bits need to have a lines to write on,not just a page with "marrages and holy orders" with a boarder.BUT,the price is very good-and these minor changes would make it excellent.i really like the cover, printing style and the page markers.
Since (2004) I read of this Bible in a book called 'Which Bible should you read 'published by TAN BOOKS PUBLISHERS, I fell in love with this Bible while others became repugnant to me .I bought one on February 5 2006.
Excellent quality Bible! There are others out there, but this one is definitely the best of them all!
