This is a Folio Society hardback, in new condition.

"This one-volume translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls is the latest edition of "The Dead Sea Scrolls in English", first published in 1962. In a lengthy introduction Vermes summarizes the 50-year history of scrolls research. He presents an overview of the sectarian community associated with the scrolls, its history, and its beliefs. The translation is good and has stood as the standard for many years."
- Library Journal (US) review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Geza Vermes provides an introduction to the Dead Sea Scrolls and English translations of many of the scrolls and fragments found in the caves of Qumran. This book was originally published in 1965 and was last updated in 1997. Much has happened in those 32 years and this book contains updates on the key items.
Vermes provides an insight into what the Scrolls are, who the authors were, a history of the community that wrote them, and the religious ideas of the community. Translations and brief discussions of each scroll and fragment follow. The discussions are particularly helpful as introductions to the themes and background related to each scroll. At the end of the book there is a catalogue of the scrolls, an index of the texts, and a bibliography. I highly recommend this book. The topic is fascinating and this book is a must for anyone serious about learning what is in the Dead Sea Scrolls and what life was like from 150 B.C to 70 A.D."
