WHO WROTE THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS?

Golb, Norman

New York City, NY: Scribner, 1995. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Scribner, 1995. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 446 pages. Book-length account on subject. One of the best books on Jewish history of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Norman Golb's "Who Wrote The Dead Sea Scrolls?". A fascinating new interpretation of the origin and meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and as such, a thoroughly engrossing read. Shows why the scrolls must have been the work of many different groups in ancient Judah. The theory asserts that the scrolls were kept in libraries in Jerusalem and smuggled out of the capital just before the Roman Invasion in 70 A. D. An absolute "must-have" title for Norman Golb and Judaica collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (in the month and year of publication), and inscribed in blue pen on the title page by the author: "To Joan & Homer Rosenberg - faithful friends of the Oriental Institute. With all good wishes, Norman Golb. Jan 8, 1995". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The author is a Voting Member of the Institute while the recipients are among its most well-known supporters. This title is late-modern classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, publication-month dated, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the most authoritative historians of the 20th century. A fine copy. . ISBN 002544395X.

Who Wrote The Dead Sea Scrolls?: The Search For The Secret Of Qumran (Signed First Edition)

Golb, Norman

New York: Touchstone, 1996. First Edition. Paperback. Near Fine. Illustrated. Signed by the author. Since their discovery in the Qumran caves beginning in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been the object of intense fascination and extreme controversy. Here Professor Norman Golb intensifies the debate over the scrolls' origins, arguing that they were not the work of a small, desert-dwelling fringe sect, as other scholars have claimed, but written by different groups of Jews and the smuggled out of Jerusalem's libraries before the Roman seige of A.D 70.Golb also unravels the mystery behind the scholarly monopoly that controlled the scrolls for many years, and discusses his role as a key player in the successful struggle to make the scrolls widely available to both scholars and students. And he pleads passionately for an academic politics and a renewed commitment to the search for the truth in scroll scholarship. Paperback. Illustrated. Near fine condition. Author's gift inscription on title page. Notes on front free end paper. xvi, 460pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.

NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 446 pages. Illustrated. From Publishers Weekly The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in 1947 in caves in the village of Qumran, now on Jordan's West Bank, have been linked to the Essenes, an ancient Jewish pacifist, communal sect, and some scholars have suggested that Jesus may have been an Essene. Golb, professor of Jewish history and civilization at the University of Chicago, disputes the conventional wisdom in an engrossing, closely argued study. In his rival theory, Palestinian Jews, fearful of the impending Roman siege of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, took or copied manuscripts from Jerusalem's libraries, smuggled them out of the city and hid them at Qumran, Massada and other sites. Moreover, the presumed Essene monastery of Qumran was actually a Jewish rebel fortress, argues Golb, who marshalls archeological, historical and textual evidence, including his own fieldwork at Qumran and his work on the scrolls. He believes the scrolls and related fragmentary manuscripts embody a wide spectrum of doctrines, genres and themes, from a Hebrew hymn by a Jewish nationalist poet to an apocalyptic brotherhood initiation to an inventory of documents stashed away in the Judaean wilderness. Photos. BOMC, QPB, History Book Club, Newbridge Natural Science Book Club and Reader's Subscription alternates; author tour. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Contrary to scholarly consensus, Golb contends that, rather than being the product of sectarian scribes, the Dead Sea Scrolls were the work of individuals from many diverse groups and that they were deposited in the caves near the Dead Sea (among other locations) by Jews fleeing the Roman army during the First Revolt (c. 70 c.e.). He also claims that the Qumran complex served not as an Essene monastery but as a fortress for Jews involved in the revolt. This is primarily a scholarly work (though it is not beyond the grasp of nonspecialists). Golb marshalls historical, archaeological, and paleographical evidence to support his arguments. Unfortunately, he also lets readers in on his personal efforts to question and oppose the scholarly status quo, leaving the impression of being self-serving. Because of growing public interest in the scrolls and dissatisfaction with traditional theories about them, this work should be in both public and academic collections. Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama Lib., Birmingham.
