The front wrapper and title-page give the publication's information as “Nauvoo, Ill.: John Taylor, for the proprietor, 1845,” but this is clearly Daniel Macgregor's ca. 1910 reprint of Daniels' classic account (as written by L.O. Littlefield, according to Flake) ofthe murder of Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church, and his brother Hyrum. Includes the full text and reproductions of the woodcut illustrations (a half-page profile of “Tom Sharp, editor of the Warsaw Signal,” anda full-page woodcut of the mob attack on the jail).
Searches of WorldCat and Flake locate only eight U.S. libraries (CSmH, CtY, MoInRC, UHi, UPB, USIC, MiU-C, NjP) reporting ownership of this reprint.
