Golb, Norman. WHO WROTE THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS? . New York City, NY: Scribner, 1995. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 446 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's account on subject. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A fascinating new interpretation of the origin and meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls. 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. A thoroughly engrossing read. A "must-have" title for collectors of Judaica. This presentation copy is 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". The author is a voting member of the Institute and the recipients are among its most well-known supporters. This title is no longer in print as a hardcover and is now collectible. This is the best signed copy we have ever found, a collector's copy. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the most authoritative historians of the 20th century. A fine copy. . ISBN 002544395X. $50.00
