Mormon Bibliography 1966–1967

Bibliography

The 1966–67 Mormon Bibliography follows the pattern adopted in the previous issues of Brigham Young University Studies. It consists of selected items from the 1966 (v. 7) and 1967 (v. 8) Mormon Americana, a cooperative listing of books dealing with Utah and the Mormons. In this bibliography only the items concerning the Church have been considered.

People interested in securing copies of out-of-print Mormon Americana books will be interested in the publication of a catalog, Utah and the Mormons, by Research Publications Inc. of New Haven, Connecticut. The catalog includes twenty-nine of the most important periodicals of the Church available on microfilm or duopage xerox, several hundred pamphlets available on duopage xerox, or the whole collection available on microfilm. The group of pamphlets was chosen as a representative collection on Mormonism, both critical and friendly. The initial choice was made by Archibald Hanna, Curator of the Yale Collection of Western Americana. The list was then forwarded here, and several items were deleted as well as added. The end result is an impressive collection of early Mormon documents.

In addition to this microfilming-xerox project, another group has just published an offset edition of the Times and Seasons. This group hopes to continue to publish Mormon periodicals. The end result should be a much more readable copy than we have heretofore been able to obtain.
