October 2, 2015, the History of the Saints team interviewed Greg Seppi at BYU. Greg is the curator of Mormon and Western Americana at the L. Tom Perry Special Collections. He spoke of the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants and its physicality. He taught us that the book was printed in Kirtland and bound in Cleveland baths the book had various leather covers but good quality paper, and that the book cost the saints $1.00 each. He said that this first Doctrine and Covenants would not be reprinted until 1844.
