I went to a Barnes and Noble bookstore to order a Pitt Minion Reference Bible, it is generally faithful I have two pocket size ones and the only place where it did not match the Pure Cambridge Edition was 1 John 5 8. I'll mark that place when get it. I just found out that the Cambridge Standard Text was the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible.

The Cambridge Standard Text Edition is different to the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible. Whether or not they are trying to uphold it now is another story.

The CSTE comes from the Eyre and Spottiswoode text that has been around for years, whereas the NCPB was created recently as an entirely new project.

Cambridge's PCE range in Cameos and Pitt Minions etc. are now being adjusted in 1 John 5:8 and maybe Acts 11:12 and 11:28. Other than that, they are close to the PCE.

so I'll mark up the differences

There is an used bookstore in NYC called Strand Bookstore. They have in stock a Bible from Collins from 1945. is it Pure Cambridge?

You'd have to check against the main 12 criteria. After that you can look at this list too: www.bibleprotector.com/editions

I found a Pure Cambridge Edition from Mamaroneck Public Library Children's Room.
Its a Collins Clear Type Press New Brev. 8vo Ref
It gives the year of different events in history eg. Genesis 1 is dated as B.C. 4004
The notes are not identified as giving a literal meaning of a Hebrew or Greek word , an alternative translation, and meanings of names
in the back of the Bible are H.M.S. Richards Bible Helps. He was an SDA.

So I would say if you can use
The Cambridge Pitt Minion Bible in reduced size or full size for the references and mark in you Bible the places where the text needs to match the PCE
The World Bible Publishers have same footnotes as the above Bible but the text needs to be changed to match the PCE
National bible Publishers in the US has a reference Bible
The notes are good but the Bible reads like an Oxford
Broadman and Holman give the references at the bottom of the text
The text has American spellings
The Zondervan has notes in the center in some editions and notes on the bottom in other editions
Zondervan is noted as the giving American spellings
in 2009 Zondervan cleaned up it's act in the Pew Bible and a compact text
The text believe it or not is very close to a PCE
If you want to get it than mark it up

Maybe Zondervan changed because it is owned by Collins.
