And, from my experience, the Battles translation is the one to buy--though I think we'd benefit from a thorough-going, faithful modern translation of not only the Institutes, but much of Calvin's writing.
Calvin's Institutes was not a single process of writing a book, but his life work in research and understanding the scripture. Each subject is expanding and building upon the previous subjects and shows the love and concern for the true gospel. His whole life was devoted to his teaching and ministry of his congregation rooting out unbiblical ideas of the time.
