George Q. Cannon: A Biography
By Davis Bitton
Condition: New in New dust jacket
Description: “One can scarcely expect to understand the history of Mormonism without understanding the life of George Q. Cannon. He was never president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but aside from the founding prophet, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young, no one surpassed Cannon as a leader, shaper, and defender of nineteenth-century Mormonism.” –Front jacket flap. George Q. Cannon was an Apostle and member of the First Presidency. He famously served jail time for polygamy. This book not only tells his story, but uses his life as a window to Church history, particularly in late 19th century Utah. He served an early mission to Hawaii and died in 1901. Out of Print.

Latter-day Saint scholars LaMar C. Berrett and Blair G. Van Dyke have weaved together a narrative that lends insight into and appreciation for the miracles that have occurred and are still forthcoming.” –dust jacket flap.

A Disciple’s Life: The Biography of Neal A. Maxwell
By Elder Bruce C. Hafen
Condition: Very good, no writing in the text, dust jacket very good, binding solid.
Description: “In this inspiring, sometimes humorous, and moving biography, Elder Bruce C. Hafen has painted an intimate portrait of a beloved Apostle, capturing the warm, personal stories that reveal the heart and mind of a true disciple of Christ.” This fascinating book is over 600 pages long. Out of print in hardcover.
Excerpt: “By May 1998, Neal’s remission had lasted fifteen months. Admittedly not eager to line up for another turn at the chemo ward, he was thankful for his unexpected return to near-normal activity. Dr. Ford continued to monitor his monthly blood samples with close scrutiny and Sphinx-like reactions. He didn’t want to let on that he fully expected the leukemia to return. On Friday, May 29, a new painting of Joseph Smith in Liberty Jail was delivered to Elder Maxwell’s office. While he was a way that afternoon, his secretary Susan had the painting hung in the place prepared for it. As she stood back to see how it looked, she was drawn to Joseph’s blue eyes, which seemed to carry a mellow kind of sadness. Something about the pleading eyes remained with her, creating a kind of quiet heavy feeling…Later that morning he [Maxwell] met with Dr. Ford, who reported the results of the latest tests, which had included a bone marrow biopsy. The news was not good. The leukemia had returned.” p. 553-554.

Reflections of a Mormon Historian: Leonard J. Arrington on the New Mormon History
Essays by Leonard J. Arrington, Edited by Reid L. Neilson and Ronald W. Walker
Condition: New in New dust jacket
Description: “Conflict between matters of faith and historical truth has been a conundrum at the heart of doing and telling the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the Mormon Church). Some of the best essays on that topic were written by Leonard J. Arrington, perhaps the best-known member of the group of professionals who founded the New Mormon History of the late twentieth century. Now, Arrington’s essay on history and the Mormons are collected in a single source work. Arrington rose to prominence during the so-called “flowering of Mormon history.” In a precedent-breaking move, he was made Church Historian in January 1972, the first professional historian to serve in the position. His ideas, as expressed in the essays collected here, helped to determine how Mormon history was written during the last part of the twentieth century. Arrington sought a middle way between the extremes of defending or attacking faith claims—two forces that drove most nineteenth-century and even much twentieth-century writing on the Mormons. He not only adopted a neutral stance in his writing as LDS Historian, his name became connected inseparably with the New Mormon History because of his personality and the quality of his work. The fourteen essays offered here are autobiographical, reflective, analytical, personal, and prophetic. Together, they constitute an illuminating study of the challenges faced by all who study history and face the conflicts its telling involves. Supplementing the essays are a biographical sketch by historian Ronald W. Walker, a chronology of Arrington’s life, and a detailed bibliography of his published works and speeches, prepared by David J. Whitaker. A personal tribute to Arrington is given by his daughter, historian Susan Arrington Madsen. The book has a bibliography and index. It is bound in rust linen cloth, has a foil stamped spine and a full-color dust jacket.” –Arthur Clark Press website. In print at $36.95.

By Steven C. Harper
Condition: New in New dust jacket.

Chapters on every section of the Doctrine and Covenants begin by delving into the historical record to recreate the question or problem each revelation was given to resolve and end by showing readers the outcomes for individuals and the Church.” –Book flap.

Nauvoo Marriages Proxy Sealings, 1843-1846
Edited by Lyndon W. Cook
Condition: Like New, no dust jacket issued
Description: “As it related to the sealing of marriage partners, there were, at Nauvoo, at least four possible types: 1) the sealing of two living persons, husband and wife, who covenanted to remain together in this life and in the afterlife, was referred to as a sealing ‘for time and eternity;’ 2) the sealing of a living person to a deceased person, who could only hope to be together in the afterlife, was referred to as a proxy sealing (but ceremonially also identified as a sealing for ‘time and eternity’ even thought the ‘time’ aspect of the relationship had elapsed for the decedent); 3) the sealing of a living woman to a living man who each covenanted to be together in the afterlife but not in this life was referred to as a sealing ‘for eternity;’ and 4) the sealing of a man a) to a woman who had been previously sealed to a husband for time and eternity (and whose spouse had died) or the sealing of a ban b) to a woman who had been previously sealed for time and eternity by proxy to her deceased spouse was known as a sealing for ‘time’ or for ‘time’ only. Personal diary references to these types of marriage sealings are frequently terse, often silent as to type and, in cases of proxy sealings, invariably omit the name of the proxy. The silence, in many instances, may be attributable to the fact that the marriage ceremony included a plural wife component, illegal under Illinois state law. Typical was a brief statement: ‘A was sealed to B’ or ‘I was sealed to so and so,’ etc., without providing additional details. Officially recorded proxy marriages sealings were similarly brief but included all of the essential facts relative to the ceremony…” –Introduction. This fascinating book provides information about proxy sealings. An example would be Hyrum Smith’s sealing to Jerusha Barden, his first wife, and deceased by 1843. Mary Fielding, Hyrum’s then-current wife, acted as proxy for Jerusha in the sealing. The entry also lists Hyrum’s plural wives and over a dozen women who were sealed to Hyrum after his death. Joseph Smith’s entry is far far longer with the last identified proxy sealing to Joseph Smith occurring in 1906. Out of print. Limited edition of 500 copies. This copy unnumbered. SALE See Above
Gettysburg to Great Salt Lake: George R. Maxwell, Civil War Hero and Federal Marshal among the Mormons
Author: John Gary Maxwell
Condition: New, Shrinkwrapped
Description: “Following distinguished Civil War service that took one of his legs and rendered an arm useless, General George R. Maxwell was sent to Utah Territory and charged—first as Register of Land, then as U.S. marshal—with bringing the Mormons into compliance with federal law. John Gary Maxwell’s biography of General Maxwell (no relation) both celebrates an unsung war hero and presents the history of the longest episode of civil disobedience in U.S. history from the point of view of this young, non-Mormon who lived through it. With the onset of the Civil War, Maxwell volunteered for the First Michigan Cavalry and fought in most of the war’s major battles in Virginia and at Gettysburg. In his subsequent service, Maxwell waged a different war as he battled the Mormon church’s leadership over ownership of land, water, and timber. In the courts, in election outcomes, and in the legislature, Maxwell fought the Mormons’ affirmation that God’s law was superior to federal law. And as marshal, he was the first to properly conduct a federal trial in the Utah Territory, when John D. Lee was tried for the massacre of 120 Arkansas emigrants at Mountain Meadows. Gettysburg to Great Salt Lake recognizes Maxwell as both a bona fide Civil War hero and an unappreciated shaper of Utah history. His biography reveals this period through the eyes of a soldier and civil servant who embodied federal authority in Utah during its turbulent post–Civil War years.” –Arthur H. Clark website.

A Ministry of Meetings: The Apostolic Diaries of Rudger Clawson
Editor: Stan Larson
Condition: Used, Like New
Description: “Rudger Clawson (1857-1943) was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, the third child of Hiram B. Clawson and his second polygamous wife, Margaret Gay Judd. Born just ten years after Mormons arrived in the Salt Lake Valley, Clawson’s eighty-six years spanned almost equal periods in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In 1879 Clawson became a folk hero when his missionary companion, Joseph Standing, was murdered at Varnell’s Station, Georgia. After returning to Salt Lake City, Clawson married his first wife, Florence Ann Dinwoodey, in 1882 and his second, Lydia Elizabeth Spencer, the next year. In 1884 Clawson again gained notoriety when he became the first polygamist Mormon to be convicted and imprisoned for violation of the Edmunds law of 1882. He served one of the longest continuous sentences of any Mormon “cohab” in the Utah Territorial Penitentiary. He was released by presidential pardon on 12 December 1887.” –Signature Books Website.
