Papyrus Joseph Smith 1 and Facsimile No. 1

Joseph Smith used this section of papyrus (PJS 1) as the basis for what is now Facsimile No.1 in the Book of Abraham. LDS and non-LDS Egyptologists agree that Joseph inaccurately restored the missing portions of PJS 1 when he produced Facsimile No. 1, and that this demonstrates his lack of knowledge of ancient Egyptian.
