AUTHENTIC, LEATHER-BOUND REPRODUCTION OF ORIGINAL 1830 EDITION This special edition of the Book of Mormon is an authentic replica of the first edition printed by E. B. Grandin in Palmyra, New York. Like the original, it features thick covers, leather binding, and a "European joint," which was much more attractive than today's binding. The pages have been photo-mechanically reproduced from a first edition at actual size, preserving the font and content exactly. As an intriguing conversation piece, your copy will reveal to family and friends what few have seen--the beauty of the original Book of Mormon. See for yourself how this sacred book appeared when early converts read it - which, in fact, was easier to read, before it was divided into verses and chapters that break up the flow like later editions. Gospel scholars will find this edition handy in tracking the minor changes that have been made in subsequent editions. Hardcover, leather bound.

IMPORTANT NOTE! Many sellers on Amazon (and even in bookstores) are confusing a cheaper version of the Book of Mormon replica with ours. The one published by Herald House (of Independence, Missouri) sells for $23.95 and has a hardback cover made with paper exterior, which some people think is leather (because of the color). However, our version, at only $11 more, is the ONLY VERSION THAT IS BOUND WITH REAL LEATHER. 3 reasons why our version is more like the original: 1) The LEATHER COVER, as stated. 2) The THICK COVER, which only ours has, and 3) The "EUROPEAN JOINT," which allows the cover to lay flat all the way to the spine and is much costlier to produce. (The other version, with its "modern joint," has a large, deep groove which you can readily see along the left side.) To further help set ours apart, ours is the only version with a promotional "DUST JACKET," which clearly states on the front that it is "Leather Bound," and which has a bright RED SEAL.
