"This special edition large format LSTS volume publishes ten biblical and five non-biblical fragments from the Judean Desert, more than half of them for the first time. The fragments will be published with 42 adjoining photographs. The publication of seven new fragments from the Judean Desert will supplement the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series and update scholars on the full textual situation. Two of the new biblical fragments preserve substantial textual variants. The new Aramaic fragment demonstrates interesting linguistic forms. The book will include a 10 page essay by Martin Schoyen about how he tracked down and acquired Judean Desert fragments and artifacts from 1994, and another (15-20 pages) by Hanan Eshel on the present state of affairs with regard to Judean Desert fragments in private hands. The manifold material included in this volume will give the reader a comprehensive picture of texts and artifacts from Qumran seen together. The fragments are as follows: Biblical fragments - First edition - 4QLeviticusi , 4QSamueld , 4QDeuteronomyt , and 4QTwelwe prophetsh ; New (additional) fragments of 4QPsalmsq and 4QExodusc ; Improved edition of XJudges frg 3 , 4QJoshuac , 1QDanielb , and 4QJoshuac ; Apochryphal fragments - 4QTobita ar (reedition) and 1QapocrGenesis (reedition); and, Other fragments - 1QSb ( Rule of Blessings , reedition), 11QTemplea , and 4QAramaic frg .
