The Joseph Smith Papers, Revelations and Translations, Volume 1: Manuscript Revelation Books
Provides full access to the complete texts of two early books into which Joseph Smith's revelations were copied by hand.
Volume 1: Manuscript Revelation Books is a sister volume to the oversize facsimile edition. This version is the smaller, library edition. Like the facsimile edition, it presents scores of Joseph Smith's revelations, dated from 1828 to 1834, that became the basis for the canonized books of revelations: the Book of Commandments (1833) and the first edition of the Doctrine and Covenants (1835). Unlike the earlier facsimile edition, this edition does not include reproductions of the handwritten revelations themselves. However, this volume does include:
-Complete, color-coded transcripts of the handwritten revelations, rendering each scribe's handwriting in a different color, to facilitate analysis of revisions made by various scribes.
-Introductions to place these vital documents in their historical settings and enhance understanding of them.
This volume provides easy access to all who want to carefully study and more fully appreciate these foundational documents.
