Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! A new reprint of the 1912 first edition.

; A study of holy sanctuaries ancient and modern. A special reprint of the 1912 first edition with a forward by Harvard S. Heath and an appendix by John A. Widstoe. Because non-Mormons are not allowed inside Latter-day Saint temples, curiosity seekers have tried through a variety of means, especially upon completion of the Salt Lake City edifice in 1893, to ascertain what the interior looks like and what activities transpire therein.

This inordinate interest prompted church leaders to commission Professor James E. Talmage in 1911, three months before he was ordained an apostle, to compile a visual and textual representation for the general public. Despite an earlier unauthorized foray into the temple by a camera-toting intruder, Talmage's assignment would represent the first time that good quality views of the interior would be framed and that the ordinances would be discussed in print with the church's blessing.
