A 1st Edition King James Version of the Bible, published in 1611 (400th Year Anniversary!) and a 1st Edition Book of Mormon, published in 1830 are on the work table at the LDS Church History Library Conservation Laboratory in Salt Lake City. This insider’s visit allows you to see the conservation efforts on these very rare sacred works.
Also in the lab are two first editions of the Book of Mormon published in 1830. Originally 5,000 copies were printed.
