563pp. Duodecimo [18 cm] Full black leather with decorative blind stamping to boards. Title gilt on backstrip. Near fine. Minor and discreet repair to head of backstrip. There is a short closed tear to the rose colored front endsheet that has been mended with Japanese tissue.
A very nice copy. This edition of the Book of Mormon is significant because the stereotype plates were used for all subsequent printings until the 1879 edition. Crawley 688. Flake/Draper 601
