672pp. Octavo [23 cm] Blue cloth with gilt titles on the front board and backstrip. Index. Very good. The covers are slightly cocked. The edges of the spine and covers are gently bumped and rubbed. The gilt stamped title on the front cover has faded. There is very minor soiling on the edges of the text block. There are two blind stamps from a previous owner on the first several pages. One of 500. This volume is described by the author as "a reasonably accurate copy of the journal kept for Brigham Young by his scribes during the exodus from Nauvoo, and as such might reasonably be considered Volume VIII of the history of the Church edited by B. H. Roberts (documentary)." The binding style looks similar to the History of the Church, and the author claims this was intentional. He envisioned this volume sitting side by side with the 'History' set.
