Abstract:

This is the second issue of the James Wright edition. Wright printed the work not as a faith promoting exercise, but a profit promoting exercise. Wright was a businessman who saw a need in the marketplace for new Books of Mormon. After the 1842 Nauvoo edition there was not another LDS sanctioned edition printed in the United States until the Salt Lake 1871, and this is the only 19th century Book of Mormon not printed by the LDS or RLDS churches. There were two issues of the Wright edition. The second (this one), also called the "Brooks Huntley," has an introduction by Zadoc Brook. -- cf. Flake. A Mormon bibliography, 1830-1930. 605, p. 48; Morgan. Bibliography, p. 175-176.
