Preface
PREFACE.
 
The publishers of the following volumes having obtained leave to issue five thousand copies of the same, from those holding the copyrights, would respectfully notice a few items for the benefit of the reader.
The 1830 edition of the book of Mormon having some time since been distributed, the pressing calls for the same, as well as the book of Doctrine and Covenants, and the vast importance attached to their contents, have induced the undersigned to seek the privilege of supplying those calls by presenting, in one volume, both books, in a condensed form, rendering greater convenience to elders, and others, who convey the same to different parts.
Individuals acquainted with book printing, are aware of the numerous typographical errors which always occur in manuscript editions. It is only necessary to say, that the whole has been carefully re-examined and compared with the original manuscripts, by Joseph Smith, Jr. the translator of the book of Mormon, assisted by the present printer, brother , who formerly wrote the greatest portion of the same, as dictated by brother Smith.
Expecting, as we have reason to, that this book will be conveyed to places which circumstances will render it impossible for us to visit, [p. [v]]
