This article traces the history of two Book of Mormon manuscripts—the original manuscript and the printer’s manuscript. Joseph Smith deposited the original manuscripts in the cornerstone of the Nauvoo House October 2, 1841. It was recovered in 1882. The printer’s manuscript is now in the possession of the RLDS church.
