Set deep in the woods of Central New York, RICK GRUNDER - BOOKS is not a walk-in store, but an original source for the origins of Mormonism. Think of this as a safe retreat in a fertile forest where words like "rare" and "fine" are used with discrimination and hopeful expertise. As the first Chairman of the Brigham Young University Library Bibliographic Department until 1981, then an antiquarian bookseller for a third of a century, I have worked full-time as a specialist in this field for nearly forty years.  I am located an hour's drive from both Palmyra, New York, and Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, places where Mormonism began. In a setting such as this, amazing things can happen.
