Prepared by Royal Skousen, professor of English and linguistics at Brigham Young University, this volume contains typographical facsimiles of the original manuscript of the Book of Mormon. This kind of transcription is an exact reproduction of the text in typescript, including original spellings, miswritings, cross-outs, overwritings, erasures, and scribal insertions. The book also includes color and black-and-white ultraviolet photographs of some of the manuscript pages and fragments. This groundbreaking project represents years of painstaking, meticulous work that will be a tremendous resource for Book of Mormon scholars, historians, teachers, and students.
