Times And Seasons Vol 4 No 17, July 15, 1843
1843. OWN A PUBLICATION PRINTED DURING THE LIFE OF JOSEPH SMITH, JUN.!! Times And Seasons Vol 4 No 17, July 15, 1843. Condition is fair with stained and loose pages. Edges are brittle. No markings or creased pages. This issue was published during Joseph Smith's lifetime on July 15, 1843. It came only three days after the significant revelation regarding plural and eternal marriage, known as the new and everlasting covenant of marriage; which was later published as Doctrine and Covenants Section 132. The Times and Seasons was important to the Mormon (LDS) faith at that time as it was a way to spread the goings on in Nauvoo and abroad. This issue features news about the trial of Joseph Smith, as well as the ongoing persecution of the saints. This was so important to the saints at the time that in the August 1, 1843 issue, an apology was provided to the saints for the publisher's primary focus on printing information about the trial of Joseph Smith over other goings on, stating that "nothing but circumstances of extraordinary nature could have caused us to have pursued such a course." Joseph Smith was assassinated less than a year later. Shipped with USPS First Class.
