Newly revised bibliography of early Mormon publications now available

Published by BYU's Religious Studies Center

The most comprehensive resource of early Mormon publications has been updated and is now available in bookstores.

The two-volume second edition of "A Mormon Bibliography, 1830-1930: Books, Pamphlets, Periodicals and Broadsides Relating to the First Century of Mormonism" contains 2,700 new entries of published material about early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The large-format book is available for $149.95 and will have an initial printing of 1,300 copies through Brigham Young University's Religious Studies Center.

New to the second edition are entries for state and local histories in places where there was a noted Mormon presence, particularly in New York, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Utah.

Also new are entries for more than 600 published government documents that deal in some way with the Mormon people.

The expanded bibliography contains more than 15,000 pages and 14,400 entries.

The original bibliography, first published in 1978, has been unavailable for years and has become a collector's item.

The second edition is the result of 12 years of teamwork by BYU librarians and authors Chad J. Flake and Larry W. Draper.

Flake, a former senior librarian at Brigham Young University, was instrumental in creating the first edition that is commonly referred to as "Flake."

Draper, who is curator of the Western and Mormon Americana Print Collections at the L. Tom Perry Special Collections in BYU's Harold B. Lee Library, carried on the work after Flake's death in June 2003 and completed the edition in winter 2003.
