In July of 1835, Michael Chandler, an owner of Egyptian mummies and manuscripts, came to Kirtland where he sold some mummies and a collection of manuscripts to the Latter-day Saints. Throught those manuscripts, Joseph produced the Book of Abraham, which became part of the Pearl of Great Price in 1851. Facsimile 1 is one of the fragments of those original manuscripts that has survived. Facsimile 1 is extracted from Egyptian manuscripts to illustrate the apostasy of Abraham's fathers as recorded in the Pearl of Great Price in the Book of Abraham.
