Another Book of Mormon Cracks $100K

Rare Book Review notes that yet another copy of the first edition Book of Mormon has sold for more than $100,000 at auction. PBA Galleries sold the book in their 11 October Fine Americana Sale for $103,500. This particular copy "has on the front pastedown endpaper the private library bookplate of Paul M. Hanson. Hanson served as a member of the Council of Twelve of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from 1913 to 1958. Inscribed by Hanson to John T. Conway on front free endpaper."

No word on the buyer, but Ken Sanders' prediction-streak is still holding up well.
