Book Description

DJD XXXII presents the first full critical edition of the Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa) and the Hebrew University Isaiah Scroll (1QIsab) in the style of the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series. That is, whereas the photographs and transcriptions have been available since the 1950s, this volume provides a fresh transcription of all the known fragments, notes clarifying readings that are problematic either physically or palaeographically, and the first comprehensive catalogue of the textual variants. Part 1 contains the photographic plates (1QIsaa in colour) with the transcriptions on facing pages for easy comparison. Part 2 contains the introduction, notes, and the catalogue of variants; The introduction narrates the discovery, purchase, and early publication of these two manuscripts, which are part of the earliest discoveries and among the most significant biblical scrolls.

The new reproduction of the two Isaiah scrolls from the Dead Sea is excellent.
The reason for printing them in two volumes was for ease in comparison so said the preface to the books. I was shocked at the outrageous price demanded for the two volumes. It would have been better to print the two volumes as one and lower the price.
I have read in Biblical Archaeological Review, the latest number, that this set was voted the best contributing book for the year 2010. I agree.
If you have the money this set is a must for the scholar. It not of no use for the laymen who dabble in such esoteric studies as the Dead Sea Scrolls.
