FIRST EDITION -  Elders’ Journal of The Church of Latter Day Saints.  This rare early church newspaper was first published in October 1837 as The Elders' Journal of the Church of Latter Day Saints (the name changed to Elders' Journal of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with the third issue) It was edited by Don Carlos Smith, the younger brother of Joseph Smith. 

This is the first of only two issues of the Elders' Journal to be published in Kirtland, Ohio  in 1837. The newspaper was then relocated to Far West. Missouri where two more issues were printed. The first two issues were published on the press that had previously been used to publish the Messenger and Advocate.  Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon relocated to a new headquarters in Far West and continued to publish the Elders' Journal until the events of the 1838 Mormon War prevented further operations in the state.

This extremely rare first edition is still on un-trimmed sheet, leaving large margins on all sides.
