186 years ago today, the first edition of the Book of Mormon was published on March 26, 1830, at the E. B. Grandin print shop in Palmyra, New York. 5,000 copies of the Book of Mormon were originally printed. In the following video clip, President Thomas S. Monson walks us through the restored Grandin print shop and shares his witness of the Book of Mormon as Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
Yesterday I invited you to post a pic on your social network of you with your Book of Mormon. If you haven’t done so yet, you can still #ShareGoodness and ride the #BoMDay wave by posting a pic now with the hashtags #BoMDay and #BOMTC.
Ever wonder what it may have been like to publish a book in 1830? This may not be a perfect recreation, but it looks pretty close to the press and process exhibited at the E. B. Grandin print shop today.

Learn anything new? Well, here is a pretty cool video that I ran across while looking for the video above. It gives a virtual tour of the E. B. Grandin print shop and some artifacts that assisted him in printing the first edition of the Book of Mormon. It also shows how the printing press was used and explains events which allowed the Prophet Joseph Smith to publish the Book of Mormon.
