The is an account of the Book of Commandments, which was the first monograph published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) in 1833. The paper used to print to the book was purchased in Wheeling, (West) Virginia. The book was destroyed in press by a mob and was never completed. However, a limited number of the printed signatures were salvaged and bound. The few surviving, incomplete copies are worth thousands of dollars. The volume is Mormonism's rarest book.
