I am seeking a plain-text "thinline" or "ultraslim" A(KJ)V Bible. Do any of you know of one? By "plain-text" I mean a Bible in which the text alone is presented, in traditional verse format, without addition. Here are many examples. I have been able to find many "thinline" AV Bibles, but they all had undesirable features (red letter, paragraph format, &c.).

I am also seeking an AV Psalter, that is, a stand-alone printing of the Book of Psalms in the AV, specifically something similar to this ESV Psalter. Do any of you know of one? I would also be interested in any recommendations for an Anglican chant (or plainchant/song) AV Psalter.

I would be most grateful for your replies and recommendations. Thank you.

I bought this little KJV Book of Psalms a few years ago; it's amazingly only 2.99 and is of very good quality. I use it daily. It has one fault in that it prints LORD in all caps even when the Hebrew is "adonai." I just used a concordance to find those instances and corrected them with a pen.

Thank you for the information, but it appears that it is only available as an e-book there.

Isn't it too bad that there isn't anything comparable (in my knowledge) to the ESV Psalter available?

Oops, you are right (2.99 would have been amazing indeed!). It must have been a limited printing. I did find some used ones on sale at Amazon, however. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/1435154339

And yes, it is too bad one can't find something comparable to the ESV Psalter. Maybe some requests to Trinitarian Bible Society are in order!

Sirs, maybe it's because I'm on my mobile phone but when I clicked on this link, I got an online bible. Is that correct?

When I click on it I see the Bible I suggested, not an online bible.

I don't know how thin it needs to be, but the TBS Windsor Text Bible is worth looking at unless you're looking for something pocket sized. I don't think it is much bigger than the Classic Reference. (The Classic Reference is a Cambridge Concord text block that is reduced in size.) The Windsor is the text only (no marginal notes, no references) in two columns, with print that is considerably larger than the Classic Reference since there is nothing else on the page. According to the TBS site, both are 1" thick. It may be that the Windsor is a little thicker, especially if you get the one with Metrical Psalms, but it isn't by much. It is perhaps the most affordable Calfskin Bible available even though they are a bit more expensive than they were originally.

Unless it is an edition that is NT only, I don't believe I've seen any edition published by TBS that is in paragraphed format.
