Significant Textual Changes in the Book of Mormon  The First Printed Edition Compared to the Manuscripts and to the Subsequent Major LDS English Printed Editions, Dinger, John S.
1 Significant Textual Changes in the Book of Mormon The First Printed Edition Compared to the Manuscripts and to the Subsequent Major LDS English Printed Editions

Dinger, John S.New, Signature Books, 2013, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! ; The Book of Mormon is the scripture embraced by followers of Joseph Smith in his 1830s Latter-day Saint movement. Despite the faith of believers that the Book of Mormon is “the most correct of any book,” ever since Smith dictated the text to scribes in 1827, there have been significant modifications with each printing.

Here, presented for the first time, is an easy-to-use, single volume correlating all the major changes to English language editions of the Book of Mormon. It includes the original manuscript, printer’s manuscript, and fifteen editions from 1830, 1837, 1840, 1841, 1849, 1852, 1879, 1888, 1902, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1911, 1920, and 1981. The presentation is simple and reader friendly. The base text is from an original 1830 edition, and bold lettering signals the altered text. Footnotes track changes over time, with details from the variant texts. Often these changes simply clarify minor issues of spelling, adding or deleting conjunctions or completing fragmented sentences. But at several important points, the changes transform the meaning of Joseph Smith’s canon. A major character in the book describes the symbolism of a dream he has and refers to “the Lamb of God” (Jesus) as “the Eternal Father,” a generic Trinitarian belief that Mormons now reject. The text was subsequently changed to read “the Lamb of the Son of the Eternal Father,” which reflecting the shift in belief among Mormons at the time, as they came to regard Deity as three separate beings with exalted human bodies. Other changes affect basic understandings of theology, race, and identity, which morph through printings and are tracked here in a clean, straightforward approach.

DANISH APOSTLE - The Diaries of Anthon H. Lund, Hatch, John P. (editor)
2 DANISH APOSTLE - The Diaries of Anthon H. Lund

Hatch, John P. (editor)New, Signature Books, 2006, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ++ ; "By the time Anthon Lund was born in Denmark in 1844, Søren Kierkegaard was already producing his ideas on existentialism and Hans Christian Andersen had just penned the tales that would make him world-famous. In this environment, Anthon—who was raised by his father and grandmother after his mother's death—became a voracious reader by the age of six. "Lund converted to Mormonism, immigrated to the United States, and became an apostle and later counselor to the LDS church president—also Salt Lake temple president and Church Historian. His diaries cover the tensions between Apostle Moses Thatcher and his colleagues; the rejection by the U. S. House of Representatives of Utah's Congressman, B. H. Roberts; the stormy hearings over whether to seat LDS apostle Reed Smoot in the U. S. Senate; and publication of The History of the Church. Lund's accounts of the inner workings of the church hierarchy are at times formal but otherwise chatty, the latter quality making him a favorite diarist among historians.

In the World - The Diaries of Reed Smoot, Heath, Harvard S. (editor)
3 In the World - The Diaries of Reed Smoot

Heath, Harvard S. (editor)New, Signature Books, 1997, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; No one was more surprised than Reed Smoot when he was called to the LDS apostleship at age thirty-eight. He had not held a previous church office of significance. Yet, as the son of one of Utah's wealthiest men and the husband of a ranking church leader's daughter, he was destined for prominence of some kind. His role would come to be that of an ambassador for the church in Washington, D. C. , rather than a strictly spiritual counselor. When he was first elected to the U. S. Senate in 1902, and during the ensuing hearings to challenge a Mormon's right to hold office, Smoot was ineffective in swaying public opinion. But over the next thirty years as he increasingly socialized with corporate leaders and heads of state; in consulting with other senators, and they with him; and in spending long hours at the White House--even vacationing with two U. S. Presidents--he emerged as one of the country's most influential men. It was because of Smoot's political clout that Mormon immigrants were allowed to leave Ellis Island; that LDS colonists in Chihuahua were provided safe passage out of Mexico; and that missionaries were allowed back into Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and South Africa after World War I. On the other hand, his protection of Mormon sugar interests in Idaho and Hawaii caused instability in Cuba, his insistence on punitive reparations following World War I contributed to the outbreak of the Second World War, and his infamous Smoot-Hawley Tariff of 1930 hastened--some say caused--the Great Depression. In addition, beyond such well-intentioned, if short-sighted attempts to safeguard church and country, Smoot legislated federal subsidies that benefitted his own businesses. A proponent of compromise, he repeatedly locked horns with Utah political and church leaders who thought he sold out too easily on moral issues. His opponents included Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, B. H. Roberts, Jessie Knight, and James Henry Moyle. Within his own family, he was indulgent, yet often absent. When his wife was unavailable to attend White House dinners, he often took a female escort, as was the custom, and sent flowers home to his wife. After he argued for compulsory military induction on the senate floor, he immediately arranged for his own sons' deferments and special appointments. He constantly came to his children's aid, even though one was alcoholic, another mentally unstable, one fiscally profligate, and so on. In his diaries, Smoot discloses something about every aspect of his life, whether personal or professional. He tells what went on behind closed doors in church and government circles, and he outlines the toll his government service took on his family. His candor and breadth make In the World an essential resource for United States and Latter-day Saint history.; Significant Mormon Diaries Series No. 7 Series; Vol. 7; 6.25" x 9.25"; 850 pages,

LETTERS FROM EXILE - The Correspondence of Martha Hughes Cannon and Angus M. Cannon 1886-1888, Lieber, Constance L. and Sillito, John (editors)
4 LETTERS FROM EXILE - The Correspondence of Martha Hughes Cannon and Angus M. Cannon 1886-1888

Lieber, Constance L. and Sillito, John (editors)Very Good, Signature Books, 1989, Salt Lake City, UT


Little wear to cover and page edges. This is number 245 of 500 limited.

; Twenty-three years her husband's junior, Martha Hughes Cannon was not the youngest wife of Angus M. , a ranking church official. Nor was she a backwoods girl with few options. "Mattie" was a University of Michigan-trained physician, an outspoken suffragist, and became the first female state senator in American history. However, in 1886, rather than testify against her husband in federal court, she put her professional interests on hold and fled, with her baby, into hiding in England. Their correspondence is rich in detail regarding polygamous life in Utah and on "the underground" just prior to its abolition. Mattie especially was intelligent, witty, and occasionally lusty--playfully utilizing sexual double entendres in her letters to convey her longing for home--and she describes her travels and predicaments in spirited, entertaining ways. She is frank about her recurring mood swings, in particular her persistent melancholy over having to lie about her identity, to live in poverty, and to be away from her husband while other wives were still by his side. She wrote that "The knowledge that it is God's plan is the only thing that saves me from despair--almost madness I fear. "

Candid Insights of a Mormon Apostle - the Diaries of Abraham H. Cannon, 1889-1895, Lyman, Edward Leo (editor)
5 Candid Insights of a Mormon Apostle - the Diaries of Abraham H. Cannon, 1889-1895

Lyman, Edward Leo (editor)New, 2010, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! ; The Abraham H. Cannon diaries read like few others from the late nineteenth century. While many of Cannon’s colleagues were functionally literate, he had elegant handwriting, a beautiful way of expressing himself, and an eye for historically important details. Because of his position as an apostle in the LDS Church, his diaries are not only mannered but substantively important. Even mundane entries such as donating $20 for “a plan of erecting a monument in this city to Brigham Young” and his attendance at meetings of the Bullion-Beck Mine are interesting. But his overview of the great issues such as the 1890 Manifesto ending polygamy and discussions (including prayer-circle narratives) at the lavish Gardo House, the temporary headquarters of the LDS Church in the 1880s-90s, are unrivaled.

Cannon died tragically when he was on his way to becoming one of the wealthiest men in Utah and—because he was ordained an apostle at age thirty—perhaps LDS president. He was noted for his unequivocal commitment to Mormonism. When arraigned before a judge who asked if three women were his wives, Cannon answered defiantly, “Yes they are, thank God! ” for which he was sentenced to six months in prison. He later married a woman who had been his brother’s fiancée. After his brother died, his family and Church convinced him to take the girl as a wife, apparently in California. Unfortunately he swam in the ocean during their trip and contracted an ear infection, from which he never recovered.

Edward Leo Lyman is a retired professor of history who taught at California Polytechnic University at Pomona; California State University at San Bernardino; and Victor Valley College in Victorville, California. He is the recipient of the Mormon History Association’s Leonard J. Arrington Award for Distinguished Service to Mormon History. He is the author of seven critically acclaimed books, among them Amasa Mason Lyman: Mormon Apostle and Apostate, Political Deliverance: The Mormon Quest for Utah Statehood, and San Bernardino: The Rise and Fall of a Mormon Community. ; Significant Mormon Diaries Series Series; Vol. 12; 6.25" x 9.25"; 794 pages,

Later Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Marquardt, H. Michael
6 Later Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Marquardt, H. MichaelNew, Smith-Pettit Foundation, 2012, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! ; This work, a companion to Early Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, contains over 800 blessings performed between the years 1835-1995 by the presiding patriarchs of the LDS Church and others; Uncle John Smith (brother of Joseph Smith Sr.), John Smith (son of Hyrum Smith), Hyrum G. Smith (great-grandson of Hyrum Smith), Joseph Fielding Smith (great-grandson of Hyrum Smith), and Eldred G. Smith (great-great-grandson of Hyrum Smith).

Patriarchal blessings given to Latter-day Saints provide an abundance of promises and constitute a guide for living. Although patriarchal blessings are considered sacred to their recipients, they can also offer historians as well as theologians a view into the doctrinal beliefs and eternal goals shared by the church at specific times and places. Because the blessings span a century and a half, changes in trends are noticeable In this book, the blessings are organized chronologically according to patriarch.

Although Mormonism offers many unique practices and rituals, patriarchal blessings stand out among them because of their personal nature and, as readers will see, the autonomy given to the patriarchs in voicing doctrines and aspirations.

MORMON DEMOCRAT - The Religious and Political Memoirs of James Henry Moyle, Sessions, Gene A. (editor)
7 MORMON DEMOCRAT - The Religious and Political Memoirs of James Henry Moyle

Sessions, Gene A. (editor)New, Signature Books, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; BEST BOOK AWARD, MORMON HISTORY ASSOCIATION. James Henry Moyle was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under U. S. President Woodrow Wilson, Commissioner of Customs under President Theodore Roosevelt, and special assistant to treasury secretary Henry Morgenthau. He was also president of the LDS Eastern States Mission. By his own count, he had two religions, Mormonism and the Democratic Party, and he alternately praised and criticized both. As one who was intimately acquainted with every major religious and political figure in Utah and elsewhere over six decades--and as the father of a future LDS apostle--he mustered surprisingly profound and entertaining insights in his memoirs. Par of his prominence was due to his aristocratic flair. Apostle Matthew Cowley admitted that he "always had to take another look when [he] passed Brother James H. Moyle on the street. " Nor was this large-framed, gray-haired statesman one to mince words. It is the raw edge to his comments that makes his autobiography so memorable. This former political kingpen's life is also recounted in LDS church president Gordon B. Hinckley's James Henry Moyle: The Story of a Distinguished American and Honored Churchman, who, by his own account, refers to Moyle as a colorful, highly opinionated, uncensored voice, who has a unique value. ; Significant Mormon Diaries Series No. 8 Series; Vol. 8; 6" x 9"; 408 pages,

HISTORY'S APPRENTICE - The Diaries of B. H. Roberts, Sillito, John R. (editor)
8 HISTORY'S APPRENTICE - The Diaries of B. H. Roberts

Sillito, John R. (editor)New, Signature Books, 2004, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand New Book. Limited to 500 copies. ; Best documentary book award, mormon history association. On a drab Monday in 1882, B. H. Roberts, then laboring on a mission in Tennessee, confided to his journal: "I am twenty-five years old today: perhaps one-half of my life has passed away—and what have I done? But little of anything, either of good or evil; my misdeeds are like my talents—on the small order. I have made attempts to accomplish something in various directions, but 'miserable failure' is written across the face of each of them. " Roberts then detailed the shortcomings in his career, marriage, and church work. The irony for modern readers is what we know of his future accomplishments. In the half century left to him, he would play a preeminent role in the LDS church as a writer, historian, theologian, and politician. These diaries cover a decade, 1880-1898, in which Roberts was active in Utah as a young church leader. They are his apprenticeship years when he developed the skills that would characterize the rest of his career. Besides illuminating the character of the man himself, they also add much to our knowledge of this pivotal time in history.; Significant Mormon Diaries Series No. 9 Series; Vol. 9; 6.25 x 9.25"; 380 pages, Limited Edition,
