The Book of Mormon II
First edition Book of Mormon printed in Palmyra, New York, United States of America.

The Book of Mormon is a volume of scripture translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith through divine means. It contains the record of a two ancient peoples who traveled from the Levant and surrounding areas to the Americas. One came around the time of the confounding of languages at the tower of Babel, and another from Jerusalem around 600 BC. The book gives an account of these peoples including their dealings with God.

This copy of the Book of Mormon contains handwritten notes from a previous owner which help to understand the history of the book. They show that not only did the owner of this book cross the plains in the mass exodus of members of the Church [presumably from Nauvoo to Salt Lake City], but also deeply studied the book.
