About this Item

Limited Editions Club production of the Dead Sea Scrolls, here translated and introduced by Geza Vermes, one of the first scholars to examine the groundbreaking manuscript find; the text is illustrated with 16 watercolor plates "richly liturgical in mood yet . . . free and pulsating," some being double-page spread, and with additional black-and-white line drawings by Israeli painter Shraga Weil. The volume was designed by Henri Friedlaender, who set the text in Joanna (designed by Eric Gill) and Albertus and had it printed on St. Paul's Cray paper made by Hale of London. The volume was printed at the Westerham Press, and bound in quarter tangerine levant-grain leather with heavy natural linen?covered sides. This is => numbered copy 705 of 1500 printed, signed at the colophon by the artist. The appropriate LEC newsletter is laid in. Folio (31.6 cm, 12.4"). [8], 241, [3] pp.; 16 col. plts.
