The Pearl of Great Price , first published in 1851, is one of the scriptures of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is an important source of the teachings of Joseph Smith , the founder of the church. It was serialized in Smith's day and its order of matter was revised frequently in its various printings. This edition of Pearl contains works of revelation, including Smith's translations of the book of Moses, the book of Abraham, and a selection from the book of Matthew. Smith also gives an account of his visions of the angel Moroni, his discovery of the golden tablets, and the establishment of the church. Pearl concludes with articles of the faith, which helped guide members of the church during Smith's day and continues to be a source of inspiration and instruction for Latter-day Saints in the twenty-first century.
