LDS Church's Printing Office Prints 100 Millionth Book of Mormon
Salt Lake Tribune 1Mar00 N1
By Paul Rolly and JoAnn Jacobsen-Wells: Salt Lake Tribune

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The LDS Church's printing office expected to reach a milestone yesterday. In a reprint of the Book of Mormon, the office expected to reach the 100 millionth copy printed. The Book of Mormon was first printed in 1830 in a printing of just 5,000 copies, only a handful of which still exist.

Later printings of the Book of Mormon were much larger, but printings of more than 100,000 copies didn't happen until last century. The first foreign language edition, in Danish, wasn't printed until 1851. Significantly, this means that the average number of copies printed each year since 1830 is more than 575,000 copies.
