The Pitt Minion Bibles from Cambridge were PCEs. Some PCE copies have survived for sale to recent times. However, it may be that in the reissuing of these in recent years, they have taken the opportunity to alter a few places, such as Acts 11:12 and 1 John 5:8. I have several copies of Pitt Minions which are from the 1950s and 1960s, and they are PCE. However, none have the words of Christ in red, as the recently printed issuances have.

Pitt Minions use the bold figure reference system, which means that there are no paragraph marks or annotation marks in the text, but that everything is listed in the centre-column after the verse number.

As far as typeface and the system of references, I think the Cameo is better than the Pitt Minion. The Pitt Minion is a cleaner format, more compact style, which means that the actual Bible is slimmer.

The Pitt Minion Reference Bible - KJV - is available from Baker Publishing Group in Grand Rapids, MI. Cost is $69.99. It's a nice Bible in French Morocco leather.

It can be found online here:

Brother Ripdood, Thanks for the additional source! Good prices also! I see they also have the Cambridge Concord KJV. Not familiar with the reliability of that edition. Do you know - is the Pitt Minion better?

Sister Jassy,

I don't know that much about PCE bibles myself. I know from reading they mentioned the Pitt Minion. But my knowledge pretty much stops there.

I know they also mentioned Allan bibles. Is why I added that note concerning them.
