Deseret Book’s First Catalog, 1922

By: Ardis E. Parshall - November 21, 2008

Deseret Book: the publisher we love to hate. Well, don’t we? For generations Deseret Book has published books and other materials unique to our culture that no mainstream publisher would have touched – we love them. We don’t like much of what they sell, and they won’t publish much that we would like – we hate them. But like our sometimes generous uncles or too-kissy aunts, Deseret Book is ours, a member of the family, and we keep running into her whenever the family gets together.

Deseret Book descends from the pioneer publishing empire of George Q. Cannon, who, with his sons and assorted others, printed the Deseret News newspaper, did job printing for the public, published many of the tracts used by missionaries, and published the Juvenile Instructor beginning in 1866. Eventually they opened a bookstore on Salt Lake’s Main Street, where they sold their own publications and books imported from elsewhere.

Cannon died in 1901, and the bookstore end of the operation was sold to the company then publishing the Deseret News; it remained in its Main Street headquarters and operated under the name “Deseret News Bookstore.” In 1909, the Sunday School auxiliary – uncorrelated and independently – decided to go into the book publishing business, and opened a book store on Salt Lake’s South Temple street. That was called the “Deseret Sunday School Union Book Store,” although they didn’t limit themselves to materials directly relevant to the Sunday Schools – this ad suggests that they published textbooks used by the LDS University (an early 20th-century institution occupying the site of the current Church Office Building), or at least “GOOD BOOKS” in general.

In 1919, the DSSU Book Store married the Deseret News Bookstore. Our familiar crazy aunt, Deseret Book, was born in 1920, in the old family home on South Temple. She has lived on that site ever since (although she is now in temporary quarters nearby while the block is being rebuilt from the ground up).

And with that genealogy, Keepapitchinin presents yet another book list, this time the very first catalog of Deseret Book Company (which is apparently so big that WordPress can’t handle it with all the codes; please mentally center all the headings).

Standard Church Works

New Edition of the Book of Mormon – Just off the press. It now appears in new and attractive dress, with innovations in make-up and typography. As only mechanical changes have been made, of course; the text remains the same.

It is set up in eight-point type, double-column pages, after the general style of the Bible. An advantage of this arrangement is a shorter line, which greatly facilitates reading, reducing eyestrain and fatigue.

An interesting feature of the new edition is a “Brief Analysis,” which emphasizes vital points and clarifies certain details of arrangement that would be otherwise obscure. The volume abounds in foot-notes, which are a very helpful key to the chronological sequence of the history. The chapter headings present in terse form, the principal contents of the respective chapters, and show at a glance whose words follow. These headings, in somewhat expanded form, are compiled in the after-part of the volume as a “Synopsis of Chapters.”

A glossary of words distinctly of Book of Mormon origin, will be a great aid to pronunciation of proper names and other words. But the greatest help of all is afforded by a comprehensive index, which fills 34 pages; subjects being indexed and cross-indexed.

THREE NOTABLE CHURCH WORKS

Essentials in Church History
By JOSEPH FIELDING SMITH
Of the Council of the Twelve and Church Historian

A History of the Church from the birth of the Prophet to the present time, in ONE LARGE VOLUME of 700 pages, suitably illustrated with portraits of the leaders, early scenes and documents of historical value, and original maps, showing the travels of the Church from its organization to its establishment in the mountains; also the route of the famous Mormon Battalion to the Pacific Coast.

In addition to the material rise and progress of the Church, this interesting work treats upon essentials in doctrine, Priesthood, Authority; the development of the leading teachings in this dispensation, temple work, etc.

This book is adopted as a text for the study of the Melchizedek Priesthood and for the Priests in the Aaronic Priesthood.

Containing, as it does, so much of interest and value in one volume, it should be found in every home of the Latter-day Saints, and in every Church and Public Library.

It is well printed and handsomely bound in cloth at $1.50

A Series of Dissertations on Spiritual, Historical and Philosophical Themes.

Saturday Night Thoughts
By ORSON F. WHITNEY
Of the Council of the Twelve

The book is designated for use in L.D.S. schools and seminaries, but as the Themes in this work are calculated to stimulate study and deep reflection of Gospel truths, it will be prized by the thoughtful reader everywhere. Handsomely bound in cloth, $1.00.

Prophecies of Joseph Smith and Their Fulfilment
By NEPHI LOWELL MORRIS

Was Joseph Smith a Prophet? What answers come from the century that has rolled by since he beheld his first vision? Have the Latter-day Saints misplaced faith in him? After the progress of a hundred years, what has Time done with his claims to the title of a Prophet?

In order to make plain the outcome of Time the author has dug up old and forgotten manuscripts and prints which he lays before the readers, with photographic reproductions of the originals. Price, $1.25.

  1. …and they went steadily downhill from there….

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. But seriously, they published some great titles back in the day.

    Thanks for this.

  2. Joseph Smith’s Teachings – A Classified arrangement of The Doctrinal Sermons and Writings of the Great Latter-day Prophet.

    Wow! Classified teachings! Like the Council of Fifty Minutes?! (grin)

    Comment by J. Stapley — November 21, 2008 @ 9:58 am

  3. I’m a bit surprised to see Mark Twain’s Roughing It. I guess I had assumed (without actually evaluating evidence) that Deseret would take a more defensive stance on texts nominally critical of Mormonism.

    Comment by Edje — November 21, 2008 @ 10:53 am

  4. Madam Bovary – Gustave Flaubert.

    I doubt they would carry this today.

  6. Very cool stuff, Ardis. I just might have shopped at DB back then.

    Comment by Christopher — November 21, 2008 @ 12:11 pm

  7. No wonder it’s a weird place. The offspring of a consanguinous marriage–clearly disabled from birth.

    They list: BOOKS BY ERNEST SEATON THOMPSON

    But they got his name wrong: it’s Ernest Thompson Seton. He was one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America, and some of his books were favorites of my brother and me 45 years after this catalog.

    Then there is: WHOLESOME MORAL STORIES TO TELL CHILDREN

    I was sort of hoping to find the section on Unwholesome Immoral Stories for Adults, but then I remembered it was Deseret Book.

    Who knew?

    Comment by kevinf — November 21, 2008 @ 3:22 pm

  10. they do have the Stall sex books

    A most unfortunate name. Every time I see “Stall” and “sex books” I can’t avoid thinking of Senator Larry Craig and the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

    Comment by Mark B. — November 21, 2008 @ 3:30 pm

  11. I note a title that mentions an “Echo Canyon War” – Is this the Utah War under another name?

    Comment by Eric Boysen — November 23, 2008 @ 1:06 pm

  12. Eric — Yes, that’s one of the local names, used quite a bit in the 19th century before “Johnston’s Army” became the most common Mormon name for the Utah War.

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — November 23, 2008 @ 1:23 pm

  13. Numbers 4 and 5, you’re right. They don’t carry it, at least online. I also doubt they would carry the catalog of Rodin’s works, Swinburne, or Arthur Schnitzler. Pretty racy stuff.

    I see that some of those Burgess Bedtime Story books, The Adventures of Danny Meadow Mouse for example, are available on Amazon in Dover book editions. They seem to be exceedingly minor works of fiction, however, and since I avoid anthropomorphic animals whenever possible, I cannot recommend them. Several of the other children’s works are still classics, though.

    A scan through the historical books reveals some gems including the Faith Promoting Series. I’m currently using google books versions of a couple of the works: Indian Depredations in Utah (Gottfredsen) and Mormon Settlement in Arizona (McClintock) for a project.

    Comment by Researcher — November 23, 2008 @ 2:17 pm

  14. FWIW, I have a copy of the Deseret Book catalog from 1937, and I’m tempted to try to put together an entire run of the catalogs.

    IMO, the catalogs after 1930 would be particularly interesting, because Flake stops with works published in 1930. [I really wish there was something that included works post 1930. Even today no one really has a complete list of Mormon books being published each year.

    Knowing what has been published is also getting increasingly difficult, given the rise of cheap self-publishing. Anyone with a copy of Microsoft Word and a way to save documents to pdf can “publish” and sell their book. It makes it dreadfully difficult to compile a complete list, especially because these books often don’t appear in libraries and other catalogs.

    I probably should also mention, regarding what Deseret Book is, that I’ve put together my own takes on the “Problem of Deseret Book,” see:

    * The Problem of Deseret Book Part 1: A Question of Size

    * The Problem of Deseret Book Part 2: A Question of Focus

    * The Problem of Deseret Book Part 3: Unresolvable?

    * What to do about Deseret Book
