This book is the second of two volumes that deal with the surviving Joseph Smith papyri fragments. The subject of the first volume was The Hor Book of Breathings. This second volume deals with the remaining fragments that consist of Books of the Dead belonging to two women-Tshemmin and Neferirnub. This volume contains a detailed description of the papyri as well as a transcription, translation, and commentary of all the surviving text. The appendices include color plates with hieroglyphic transcriptions of the hieratic text, a glossary of gods, place names, etc., and a complete glossary of all Egyptian words found in the surviving text. The editor of this volume, Michael D. Rhodes, is an associate research professor in the Department of Ancient Scripture at Brigham Young University. He is a coauthor of One Eternal Round, the last volume in the Collected Works of Hugh Nibley series.
