Deseret Book had begun in 1866 under the name of George Q. Cannon & Sons who published the first issue of Juvenile Instructor magazine. Cannon and his sons published an unknown amount of books as they were self-published but the company had great ties with the Deseret News newspaper. Come 1906, Deseret News was already in possession of a Linotype machine and a dedicated book press. One of the most popular books to come out of their machines was James E. Talmage’s Jesus the Christ which sold 5,000 copies in no time.
1920 saw Deseret Sunday School Union and the Desert News Bookstore combining to become Deseret Book Company where the Deseret Sunday School Union held 30% and Deseret News had 70%. The bookstore began focusing mainly on Sunday school needs like lesson manuals in the ‘30s and in the ‘40s, Deseret Book founded Deseret Film Productions where the first film produced was Where the Saints have “Trod.”
