; This is the 1887 edition of The Book of Jasher published by J. H. Parry in Salt Lake City. It is a translation of a Hebrew work purported to be one of the lost books of the Bible. Of it the translator wrote: "The ever memorable events and transactions recorded in scripture are with many others of the most interesting nature, comprehended in the BOOK OF JASHER; and they are all arrayed in that style of simple, unadorned majesty and precision, which so particularly distinguished the genius of the Hebrew language; and this, together with other numerous internal evidences, it is presumed that the book is, with the exception of some doubtful parts, a venerable monument of antiquity . . . . "It contained a treasure of information concerning those early times, upon which the histories of other nations are either silent, or cast not a single ray of real light . . . And the evidence of the whole of its contents went to illustrate and confirm the great and inestimable truths which are recorded in divine history, down to a few years later than the death of Joshua, at which period the book closes.
