100 years ago today - Dec 17, 1921


We have pleasure in announcing new issues of the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price, with double-column pages, index and other helps, all conforming in general to the style and arrangement of the latest edition of the Book of Mormon.

The text of the Doctrine and Covenants is preceded by an "Explanatory Introduction" comprising in concise form the essential facts relating to the history of this sacred volume of latter-day revelation. Another introductory feature is the "Chronological Order of Contents" in which the several Sections are listed with date and place relating to each. Each Section is introduced by a comprehensive heading, in which are stated the circumstances under which the particular Section was given, and a brief summary of its contents. An extended "Index and Concordance" is included.

The Pearl of Great Price is also provided with a copious index and other helps not hitherto published. ...

We recommend these new issues of the three distinctive standard works of the Church for thoughtful and prayerful study. HEBER J. GRANT, CHARLES W. PENROSE, ANTHONY W. IVINS, First Presidency.
