  1. It’s good to see our buddy Anthon!

  2. I know you mentioned the Anthon books recently; would Bernhisel have been familiar with his place in Mormon history?

  3. I’m sure Bernhisel would have known of it, Researcher. JMB was an early member and close to Joseph Smith in Nauvoo. Anthon shows up in at least one other section of this catalog, too, although I don’t remember now which one it is.
