This is the first LDS hymnal. It was put together by Emma Smith, as instructed in the Doctrine and Covenants, section 25. It contains 90 hymns. Today, the original is a very rare book, worth quite a bit of money. There have been reprintings, closer to the present (at least in the '70s), and these tend to run for about $20-30.

  • There was once a hymnal published, once available for purchase, given an order form printed out from the Internet, with all the hymns of the 1835 hymnal set to music (to the likeliest tunes); here is a cached link of the site that sold it.
