    [Mormon Church]. Joseph Smith. The Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Carefully Selected from the Revelations of God. Nauvoo, Ill: Printed by John Taylor, 1846. "Fourth American Edition." Twelvemo (6.875 x 3.625 inches; 149 x 93 mm.). [2, title-page], [5]-445, [1, index] pages. Later (likely twentieth-century) calf, spine lettered and double-ruled in gilt with five raised bands; all text block edges trimmed and sprinkled blue. Hint of scuffing to calf, with mild creasing along joints; minor wear to spine ends and board edges. Effaced penciling at head of front free endpaper. Text block edges slightly dulled, with a bit of staining and fading to speckling, small areas of glue residue near spine ends; facsimile title-page, with wear to first leaf of text suggesting that it was once the front of the text block and endured prolonged handling and exposure; mild foxing scattered throughout; faint tidemarks to last several leaves of text block; lacking at least one leaf at end, with standard reference sources citing a pagination of 448. A very good, sophisticated copy. Crawley 302; Flake and Draper 2864.
