Last week I had a neat experience. I went to my boss's house to notarize some papers for him. While I was there he should me "his" book. I'm pretty sure it is his prized position. About three years ago Deseret Book sold some assets on there asset list. On that list was the first Book of Mormon off the printing press in 1830 that Martin Harris gave his brother Elmer Harris. Elmer was able to hide and keep the book safe during all the turmoil. The Harris family donated it to the church in the 1960's and some how it got on that asset list. As soon as my boss found out about it going up for sale he purchased the book. He told me he plans on donating it back to the church with the condition they never sell it again and it possibly gets in the wrong hands. Anyway he wanted to take my picture with it. It was a very humbling experience to hold that 180 year old book.
