Inscribed from One Prophet To Another

30 [Mormon] Tullidge, Edward W. Life of Brigham Young; or, Utah and Her Founders. New York, 1876. 8vo, brown cloth, spine rebacked and repaired, two front pages reattached with hinge early on, some light wear, generally very good. First edition, inscribed from Brigham to Apostle (and later Prophet) Lorenzo Snow. A great association copy, as Snow is featured in one chapter of this book. Snow was an avid reader, and his copy shows signs of use. The inscription is in a secretarial hand: “Presented to Lorenzo Snow by” and
then signed “Brigham Young” and a secretary has written “Salt Lake City, U.T., October 16th, 1876” below that (part of the city name – the first letter of “Salt” is partially covered by the hinge). A great association copy between two important Mormon leaders.
