  Set of two books, sold only as a set:

A.  The Book of Mormon. Translated by Joseph Smith, Jr. Third edition, carefully revised by the translator.

Facsimile replica printed on acid-free cream paper and sewn in a brown hard case binding, commercially contracted by Herald House, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at Voree, Wisconsin, 1992. This was the last typesetting that was authorized by Joseph Smith. If you have the well-known replica of the first edition also reproduced by Herald House (which sold at auction for seventy dollars recently) you need this revised one beside it. This book has sold at auction for $127.50 and on the Internet book search sites for $125.00.  This independent bookseller is the only place where they obtained them.

B.  The Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints: Carefully Selected from the Revelations of God. By Joseph Smith, President of Said Church.

Facsimile replica printed on acid-free cream paper and sewn in a brown hard case binding, commercially contracted by Herald House, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at Voree, Wisconsin, 1993.

  James J. Strang, trans. The Book of the Law of the Lord. St. James [Beaver Island], Michigan: 1856. 336 pages. Printed on acid-free paper and sewn in a brown hard case binding, commercially contracted by Herald House, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at Voree. This is a facsimile replica of the rare 1856 edition which was rescued in unbound sheets when the press was destroyed after Strang’s assassination. This is a fascinating book that purports to be translated from the brass plates of Laban mentioned in the Book of Mormon, and it is complete with a testimony of witnesses and Hebrew literary structures called chiasms. There are brilliantly written explanatory notes about the origins of the Book of Mormon with primary source information from early Mormons found nowhere else.
