Family Home Evening

I gave the lesson about the printing of the Book of Mormon. We learned that the type had to be set by hand, letter by letter. They got to put just the title together letter by letter and learn how long it takes. We also learned that Martin Harris sold over 100 acres to cover the cost of the book, which was $3,000 for the first printing. I forgot how many they printed, sorry! We looked at a replica of the first Books of Mormon too, very cool, all in paragraph form and no footnotes, it looked just like a regular novel.
