90pp. Octavo [22 cm] Bluish black cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the front cover. Good only. The covers are rubbed and subtly stained. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges. There are multiple splits in the cloth along the spine. The largest split measures 2 inches long. There are small losses from the cloth at the spine ends. The endsheets are mildly soiled, and they are cracked along the hinges. There is a contemporary notation on the front free endsheet. The pages are age-toned. Pp. 22-23 and 46-47 have large dark patches. There are also occasional small light stains throughout the pages. Very minor marginalia in pencil.
Includes all three facsimiles from The Book of Abraham, including facsimile #2, as a three part folding plate. This edition is significant for the addition of portions of the "Book of Moses" from Joseph Smith's revision of the bible, and the inclusion of Section 132 from the Doctrine and Covenants, the revelation on plural marriage.
