The Book of Mormon
Translated by Joseph Smith, Jr.

1908 Edition

The Title Page of the Book of Mormon was translated directly from the plates along with the rest of the translation. Joseph Smith explained this as follows,

"I wish also to mention here, that the title page of the Book of Mormon is a literal translation, taken from the very last leaf, on the left hand side of the collection or book of plates, which contained the record which has been translated; the language of the whole running the same as all Hebrew writing in general; and that, said title page is not by any means a modern composition either of mine or of any other man's who has lived or does live in this generation. Therefore, in order to correct an error which generally exists concerning it, I give below that part of the title page of the English version of the Book of Mormon, which is a genuine and literal translation of the title page of the Original Book of Mormon, as recorded on the plates" (Times and Seasons, vol. 3 page 943).
