This is the complete Gospel Book, arranged according to Russian usage (running text of the four Gospels, with marginal- and footnotes indicating where and how to start a reading, and rubrics in the text indicating when to stop or skip). Includes exhaustive appendix with a calendar of readings, and Paschal table for the 21st century. Translation is KJV, with a few very minor edits to conform to the Slavonic Gospel.
This is the 6"x9" version, with 12-point font for the Biblical text.

I like this Gospel book because it is not too big and portable and has beautiful icons in front and in back. It has the Church readings for the everyday, including for feasts, holy mysteries and saints. It is nice to see in the margins below the text what feasts/saints/holy mysteries correspond to the reading. Includes the gospel readings for the different needs (like the book of needs) and for holy Passia, including the Royal hours and Passion Gospels in the prescribed order in the appendix as well. Also, the introductions to every Gospel that include the introduction to the commentary on that Gospel by St. Theophylact is very nice to have. Here is a passage I like a lot from the Gospel according to St. John and Matthew:
"I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord..."
"Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand..."
