I enjoyed the information. What would the value of the 1851 Danish B of M be ? Thanks , Charlie
I was referred to you by a worker at the Church History Museum.I have inherited the following books and would appreciate an appraisel of them. I want to insure them if need be or sell them. I would be willing to pay you for this.
1. First Edition 1851 copy of the Book of Mormon, Danish.
2."Sacred Hymns and Spiritual Songs from the 1800's.
3. "The Voice of Warning" by Parley P. Pratt in Danish 1855.
4."Salmer" 1875 in Danish. This looks like Hymns or poems.
5. Bible in Danish, 1878
I live in Kaysville, Utah so I would be able to bring these books to you if you think you can help me.
You may have given a few owners of an 1852 German Book of Mormon a start. I believe you intended to limit it to the ones that were printed in German and French side by side. The 1852 Das Buch Mormon itself is far less valuable.
What are Kirtland Bank Notes signed by Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon worth?

Bravo! I enjoyed this so much! Can't wait for the fireside Februsry 1. Amazing information shared . Thank you !

The ‘Mormon’ Bible.
‘G.W. Fuller, of this place, is the possessor of an old Mormon Bible. The particular edition which he owns has long been out of print. A short time ago, while looking over the outside pages of the Volunteer he perchanced to find an article wherein it was stated that Mormon Bibles of a certain edition were worth $200. (page 4)
Just a nagging curiosity--the Italian member who found a copy of the Book of Mormon, minus cover, in an ash barrel in 1910. Has anyone figured out what edition it was?
