Documentary History of the Church

Documentary History of the Church. Seven-book series, the official history of the early LDS Church from 1839 to 1856. It is mainly filled with Joseph Smith’s writings and, after his death, by church historians. This set should not be confused by the later 6-volume set, written by B.H. Roberts, called A Comprehensive History of the Church of the Christ of Latter-day Saints.
