Matches 10 key features of the original 1830 Book of Mormon -Gold foil "BOOK OF MORMON" matches two unique originals. I've been LDS all my life, and I read the book of Mormon in seminary during high school. I wanted to see what it's like to read a copy of the replica of the original book of Mormon. People back then had a different composition and I'm wondering if it's any different. So far I'm still in first Nephi, but overall, This book has an amazing vibe to it. If feels nice it looks nice and every detail described in this book is perfect.

The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement, which, according to adherents, contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 BC to AD 421. It was first published in March 1830.

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.

This book is a facsimile reproduction of the original printing of the book of Mormon in 1830, written by Joseph Smith. He later said of this book that, "it is the most perfect book ever printed", because it "had been made by the power of God" using a seer stone and verbatum dictation. Herein lies the great utility of this volume. A simple comparison with a modern edition (after 1970's) of the book of Mormon shows thousands of differences in grammar (the original English was quite poor) and significant changes in content of the book, including the changing of some names and prophecies. Further, the chapter divisions have also been radically changed making referencing more difficult. Verse numbers were not included in the original edition. The book is well bound on good paper and includes Joseph Smith's original preface (absent in modern versions). The type is clear and easy to read - a pleasant surprise for a photo-reproduction. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in Mormon (LDS) history and theological development as it is indespensible.
A very good replica. Excellent binding. It has a few inaccuracies but still a very nice product. This review Is for the Stratford 2006 release.
Loved this book.
Looks just like the original. Very well made.
Been looking for this for a while.
thank you! just as expected
Nice ready this replica, the pages are inked with irregular weight. Some characters are difficult to distinguish, seems to be an actual copy of the original print. So much thicker with standard paper instead of the fine sheets current scripture is printed on. I have referenced several points against the 2013 version of the Book of Mormon. I am unable to find any differences in content.
The Book transforms lives in any format, a nice addition to my book shelf :)
I bought this replica for inclusion in a university display about the printing of the Book of Mormon, although the binding isn't period (a good thing since it wouldn't hold together long if it was!), I'm very happy with what it adds to the display. This book was obviously crafted with great attention to detail.
I prefer the way it's currently divided into chapter and verse so I can find my favorites, but it's nice to have a copy in the original way it was first published.
This is a good thing to read if you want to know what Smith originally wrote in 1830. I found it very enlightening to read what he originally wrote. Very thought provoking. Newer versions are different than the original. I think this version is easier to read and has more traditional ideas and ideals of religion proposed. I was very surprised to find that more of the doctrine espoused here agrees with mainstream Christian doctrine. Lots that absolutely disagrees with mainstream Christian belief and history too, though. Anyone curious about this book should read the original. This is what Smith originally printed and it is a piece of history.
