From The Publisher:
The Essential two-volume compilation is a practical reference tool to facilitate access to the Qumran collection of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It contains newly edited Hebrew and Aramaic transcriptions and English translations of the nonbiblical scrolls on facing pages, arranged by serial number from Cave 1 to Cave 11. In addition, it offers a summary of the contents of the biblical scrolls from Qumran. Each Q-number is provivded with a heading that contains the important information on the text and selected bibliographical references. Although unidentified and unclassified fragments have been omitted, this study edition aims to be complete for the nonbiblical scrolls. This work is primarily intended for classroom use and for use by specialists from various disciplines who need a reliable compendium to all the materials found at Qumran.
This new, more affordable paperback version of The Dead Sea Scrols Study Edition contains numerious small improvements on the original hardcover edition, including typographical corrections and transcription/translation modifications.
These volumes are clearly the standard for students, and they will also be extremely helpful for specialists, particularly with their easy references to photographs that specialists will need to consult. In paperback and at a reasonable price, these volumes are a welcome addition to the growing number of research tools on the texts from Qumran.

Will serve students and scholars well as the most complete, easily accessible texts of the Qumran manuscripts.... This edition belongs in the library of every New Testament student and on the shelves of every college, university, and seminary library. It deserves wide use, even by general readers. Nothing illuminates more than the reading of original texts. The two editors, both at the Qumran Institute at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, deserve thanks for an immensely helpful edition.
