Abstract Volume 1, Manuscript revelation books, of the Revelations and Translations series, published in 2011, presents the same textual transcripts and editorial material as the facsimile edition, but does not include the full-color photographs of each page of the revelation books. It is essentially a library edition, or a condensed edition, of its predecessor. The volume uses the same color scheme as the facsimile edition to present scribal changes made to the revelation texts.
Abstract Volume 2, Published revelations, of the Revelations and Translations series, published in 2011, presents Joseph Smith's revelations in the form that most early Latter-day Saints read and experienced them. The volume features high-quality photographs of each page of the Book of Commandments (1833), the first edition of the Doctrine and Covenants (1835), and seven additional texts added to the second edition of the Doctrine and Covenants (1844). The volume also includes transcripts of twenty-six revelation texts published in the church newspaper The Evening and the Morning Star and its later, reprinted version, Evening and Morning Star. Volume 2 also includes a proposed reconstruction of what likely would have been included in the final thirty-two pages of the Book of Commandments and selected photographs of a copy of the Book of Commandments marked up to prepare revelations for publication in the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants. Volume 2 goes hand in hand with the first volume in this series, and together they illuminate the process by which revelations were revised, edited, prepared for publication, and printed.
