Title: Holy Scriptures
By: Joseph Smith Jr.
The entire Holy Bible revised by Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet. The true first edition of this important Mormon volume was published in 1867 in Plano. This edition states 1867 but was actually printed a bit later and not in Plano. Other than that its the same book and text.
Binding: Faded black cloth; binding quite worn on boards and spine but in tact. Some markings inside front and back cover; and there are remnants of clear tape on some pages on the inside margin where someone attempted to keep loosening pages in tact. The majority of the text is quite clean throughout the book; the title page is loose but present. Title page has a couple of small chips; a very unique and important early Mormon volume. Many of the corrections Joseph Smith made in this book have since been placed in footnoting and in the Bible dictionary of current Mormon Bibles.
Shipping is $10.00 per book.

About Eborn Books:
We have been in business since 1989. We have a huge inventory of all kinds of books. We are largely a consignment store, with hundreds of vendors who price their own books and allow us to sell them.

We also buy from those who want faster cash, but you can expect more money from consignment. We specialize in all subjects. If it’s a book it qualifies to be in our store!

---- Andrus, Hyrum. Liberty’s Legacy. The New Testament Origins of American Liberty and Republicanism. Spiral Binding. This booklet, by Dr. Andrus and Chris Esseltine, discusses the basic belief deeply held by many Americans that the United States of America and its founders were influenced religiously and philosophically by God. This paper establishes through scholarly research the vital religio-spiritual elements responsible for the rise of Western Civilization, the development of liberty in modern times, and the origins and birth of American society and government. This paper is not the actual presentation the authors gave in 1996 in the home of Utah State Senator Howard Stephenson, but it is a supplemental companion to that work. It traces the line of liberty from the New Testament to modern times.

---- Baker, LeGrand L. Murder of the Mormon Prophet. Political Prelude to the Death of Joseph Smith. Hardbound with dust jacket. 850p. A colossal work which finally explains who really killed Joseph Smith, and why. [After reading this book one should probably then read Elder Dallin H. Oaks book entitled Carthage Conspiracy as it continues the story.]The documentary of the same name is based on this book. The hardbound first edition was limited to 1,000 copies and sold out quickly. There are also three separate leather bound editions.
---- Baker, LeGrand L. (& Ricks, Stephen D.) Who Shall Ascend into the Hill of the Lord? The Psalms in the Old Testament & in the Book of Mormon. Thick hardcover volume which is limited to 500 copies and which sold out quickly. The softcover volume is still available. To many this book simply proves that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true. An absolutely fascinating volume about the Temple.
---- Bradshaw, Jeffrey M. In God’s Image and Likeness. Ancient and Modern Perspectives on the Book of Moses. Huge Hardcover with dust jacket; absolutely beautiful; the most comprehensive look at the Book of Moses ever published. The Hardbound is sold out and rare.

[There is a limited red leather edition of 26 lettered copies, and a limited black leather edition.]
---- Horne, Dennis B. Called of God by Prophecy. Spiritual Experience, Doctrine, and Testimony from Church Leaders Reveal How God Chooses His Servants. Hardbound with dust jacket. A great mix of Mormon doctrine, history, and inspirational stories.
---- Horne, Dennis B. Determining Doctrine. Hardbound with dust jacket. Fantastic look at how we might determine what teachings in the Church can or cannot be truly classified as doctrine, rather than opinion. The first chapter alone is worth the read because it is on Mormon books. A must for those who love doctrine and book collecting. [There were ten copies in brown leather].
---- Jones, Gerald. Animals and the Church. Hardbound with dust jacket. The author wrote a booklet entitled "Animals and the Gospel" several years earlier. This is an enlarged expanded version of that booklet. It sets forth the position of the Mormon Church regarding animals; one of the only churches that believe animals have a soul. It shows that Church leaders have long held that we should be kind to animals, etc...... Includes statements on animals from Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, George Q. Cannon, Lorenzo Snow, Joseph F. Smith, David O. McKay, Joseph Fielding Smith, and others. It also covers the religious view of animals, in general, outside the Mormon view.

---- McLellin, William E. William E. McLellin’s Lost Manuscript. [edited by Mitchell K. Shaefer; Introduction by Steven C. Harper.] 8 ½ x 11 large size hardbound. This lost manuscript (currently owned by collector, Brent Ashworth) surfaced a few years ago and has proven to be a fascinating look at this early Mormon Apostle and his views and doctrines at a period in his life much later than his closer affiliation with the Church. He gives us a few details we didn't know, such as Joseph Smith attending his science class. First Edition strictly limited to only 1,000 copies.
---- Murdock, S. Reed. Joseph and Emma’s Julia. The Other Twin. Hardbound with dust jacket. The story of Julia Murdock, who was adopted by Joseph & Emma Smith. [There is also a limited leather edition of only 20 copies].
---- Pratt, Orson. Key to the Universe, Or, A New Theory of Its Mechanism. Hardbound; limited to 1,000 copies. This one sold out long ago.
---- Pratt, Orson. The Seer. (Reprint of the original done in 1853-54). One of the most controversial Mormon books ever published, it contains fun things like Pratt speculating on the incubation period for pregnant Gods. What kind of fluid flows in the veins of God. What kind of food they eat. It also contains an exhaustive defense of plural marriage, or polygamy. A fantastic read. Brigham Young didn’t care too much for Pratt’s teachings. There is a limited edition leather volume, a limited edition hardcover edition, and a softcover edition. The only one currently still available is the white softbound, which has actually been printed several times.
---- Roberts, B. H. Life of John Taylor. Hardbound with dust jacket. Reprint of the First Edition.

---- Schwendiman, Stephen. The Mendon Saints. Volume One (of Four). 2011. Hardbound. This book explains the vision in the sky witnessed by many people in this small New York town. Many in the town converted to Mormonism and moved to Kirtland, Ohio. This is where Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball, and many others came from. The soon to be 4 volume set is an exhaustive look at the lives of all those who converted to Mormonism in this town.
---- Sealy, Shirley. George. A Story of Love and Divorce. Softbound novel.
---- Smith, Mark A. The Book of Mormon Summary. Hardbound with dust jacket. A great look at the Book of Mormon for a brand new convert to the Church, or someone less familiar with the book.
---- Smith, Mark A. Only Repentance. Hardbound with jacket. One of the most comprehensive books ever published on the subject of repentance.
---- Smith, Mark A. The Power of God. Hardbound with dust jacket.

Items on the Priesthood; 4. Succession in the Priesthood; 5. On Marriage; 6. The Origin and Destiny of Women.
---- Tracy, Michael Shannon. Millions Shall Know Brother Joseph Again. The Joseph Smith Photograph. Large size hardcover; fascinating photographs and history about Joseph Smith’s death, fake burial, the secret burial, the digging up of his and Hyrum’s graves later on, the examination and measuring of their skulls, the reburial, physical descriptions of the Prophet, paintings of Joseph, alleged photographs, the phrenology measurements of his head, Joseph’s death mask, and finally one new photograph which seems to show promise in actually matching Joseph death mask and skull! It’s called the Scannel daguerreotype. This book was a huge story in the Utah news when it first appeared. The Reorganized Church, or Community of Christ, sued the author and publisher but lost. They were adamant that the photograph in question, which they actually own, is indeed Joseph Smith! The publisher did, however, agree not to publish the book again, so the 2,500 copies printed are all there will ever be. The documentary, Picturing Joseph, is based on this book and produced by Nick Galieti. This one was so argued over that Deseret Book decided not to carry the book, or the documentary. Those who see the photograph for the first time seem to think it can’t be Joseph (because they are used to fictional paintings), but the forensics seem to say that it actually might be the only known photograph of the Prophet. Whether you accept the photograph or not, the book is a fascinating look at the history of all the things mentioned above! [There is also a limited edition burgundy leather edition of 420 signed and numbered copies.]
---- Tullidge, Edward. Joseph the Prophet. This book was sold out long ago and comes in a limited edition black hardcover of 200 copies, and a limited edition white softcover of only 300 copies. This book was a photographic reprint of the 1878 first edition first published in New York.
---- Whitney, Orson F. Life of Heber C. Kimball. Hardbound with dust jacket. This is a re-type-set version of the First Edition first done in 1888, not the Bookcraft reprint with changes.
