630pp. Octavo [24 cm] Turquoise cloth covered boards with gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The edges of the covers and spine are mildly bumped and rubbed. The spine is subtly rolled, and the bottom edge of the text block is just a little scuffed. There is a previous owner's name on the front free endsheet. Gently browned pages. The dust jacket is in good condition only. Age-toned, rubbed and creased. There are numerous losses from the edges. The largest loss is from the paper at and surrounding the head of the spine. This loss measures 5 inches wide by 3/4 of an inch deep.
With bibliography and a 16-page illustrated section at center. "The blood of martyrs does not cry from the ground to men for vengeance... vengeance rests with the Lord." - Willard Richards to George Miller, July 1844
