This edition is based on the 1830 Book of Mormon.
“Publication of this edition of the Book of Mormon fulfilled one of the most cherished ambitions of the Whitmerite church. Almost all of the lesser Mormon churches have felt it an indignity to be dependent upon the Utah and Reorganized churches for the text of a scripture they hold in equal reverence with the Bible, but only three of the churches have been able to get out editions of their own.” - Dale Morgan.
