- The Charles Larson "restoration" of Book of Abraham Facsimile 1 in "...by his own hand upon papyrus"—The book "...by his own hand upon papyrus" presents a "restoration" of Book of Abraham Facsimile 1 (p. 65), which purports to be "based upon the modern study of Egyptology, and similar scenes in numerous existing papyri." However, the recent availability of high-definition images of the papyri on the Church History website now provides the opportunity to compare the Larson restoration with the original. There are a number of discrepancies which indicate that the restoration contains a number of significant inaccuracies. We examine those inaccuracies in this article.
