After the fragment was leveled and photographed, we could basically see what was there: [Page 62]The text for this fragment is in the hand of Oliver Cowdery; the ink was originally black and has turned brown over time.
We found that black and white ultraviolet photography brought out the text best of all: This fragment of the original manuscript comes from 2 Nephi For this part of the text, he was copying an Isaiah quotation, which is difficult enough.
Even so, the relatively high number of errors for this single page was unusual for Oliver; he was probably getting tired as he was making the copy here. And we can see this quite well from the pencil marks in this color photograph of the original manuscript for Helaman The pencil marks were placed here by the typesetter, John Gilbert.
About one third of the time Gilbert marked up his manuscript in advance of doing the typesetting. Overall the [Page 64]evidence is that he used the original manuscript from Helaman through the end of Mormon. Only a small percentage of the original manuscript is extant for this part of the text. And when they disagree, then one of the readings is probably the correct one. For these lines there are a number of corrections: On the third line, two words, to be, are crossed out.
Written above the crossout is a grammatical correction that Joseph Smith made, namely, the word is. On the next line — you can barely see it — after the word knowledge there is a capital letter P that was added by the typesetter.
Sometimes he missed some words or wrote something wrong, which he then corrected, often by inserting words above the line.
In the last line shown here, Oliver originally wrote the word that, then he crossed it out and wrote the above the crossout. And we also find corrections like these in the original manuscript.
Next we have what is called a facsimile transcript or typographical facsimile for this part of the manuscript. Note, for instance, that in this case the word prophets was misspelled as prophits in the next-to-last line. And destroyed was spelled as destroid in the last line. In each instance, we leave it to the reader to figure out what the intended reading is.
Since I have continued work on three other volumes. Volume 4 was completed in There are six maroon books in that volume. They represent my work on recovering the original text, going from verse to verse, looking at all of the variants and potential variants in the text as well as looking at all the textual evidence, in order to determine what the original reading might have been.
This is the volume that I am currently working on.
The Yale Edition of the Book of Mormon As I got near the end of completing the six books of volume 4, I discovered some potential problems with the project as originally conceived. One of the problems was in getting people, even some academic people doing research on the Book of Mormon, to cite the findings of the critical text project.
These books are very large and heavy; and as a complete set, they are also rather expensive. In any event, the result was that researchers were writing articles on the Book of Mormon but, it would seem, quite oblivious to what the actual reading should be — or at least what the critical text project had to say about the reading.
Another problem that became apparent was that with the completion of volume 4 anyone could go out and produce their own original-language version of the Book of Mormon by simply using the findings of volume 4 and referring to the resulting book as the original text. This book represents in one volume the original text, to the extent it can be determined. And if you take off the dust jacket of this book, you will see that the hard cover matches the maroon cover of volume 4.
This was done intentionally, to show the connection to volume 4 of the critical text; in other words, the Yale edition derives from the decisions made in volume 4.
There are two important innovations in the Yale edition. The first is that it is set in sense-lines — not in small paragraphs where each verse is its own little paragraph, nor in narrow double columns. My idea, as originally conceived, was to break the [Page 69]lines in the text so that they would represent in some general way how Joseph Smith dictated the text — namely, in phrases and clauses, but none so long that they could not be easily read. One of the things I have been surprised about since the publication of the Yale edition is how much readers like this format.
Many readers, including scholars of the text, have seen things in the text that they have never seen before, simply because it is laid out in sense-lines. Nor do readers get fatigued as they do when reading a two-column text that frequently breaks in the middle of words by hyphenation or in the middle of phrases and clauses, a process that puts a lot of stress on readers in negotiating the text.
Some readers have discovered they now read several chapters at a time instead of just the single chapter they were used to reading. The second innovative aspect of the Yale text is that it is the first time anyone has attempted to publish the original English-language text, to the extent that it can be determined.
The Yale text, it turns out, does not have what we call a copytext.
It is not a revision of some particular edition of the Book of Mormon. I have compiled a table of all the original breaks below. I have searched for such a table online but have never been able to find one, so I made my own. To my knowledge, this is the only such table providing this information online.
Also, I have found at least three errors in it. As is apparently the emerging convention, original chapter breaks are all given in Roman numerals as opposed to the Arabic numerals used for modern chapter breaks.
You can download the chart as a PDF by clicking the green box below. The chart fits on one letter-sized page, with a brief explanation on the reverse side. Elder Pratt broke up the original chapters into shorter ones about the length of conventional Bible chapters, and he added verse divisions.
