Description:

Original Cloth. 4to. 40, 48 pages. 35 cm. First edition. With 8 plates. Aramaic inscriptions translated into Hebrew and English. Added English title page: A Genesis Apocryphon: a scroll from the wilderness of Judea: description and contents of the scroll, facsimiles, transcription and translation of columns II, XIX-XXII; by Nahman Avigad and Yigael Yadin. Translated from Hebrew by Sulamith Schwartz Nardi. A preliminary survey, dealing mainly with the last three columns which are very well preserved. "Avigad and Yadin’s edition includes plates, transcription, and translation (Hebrew and English) of cols. 2 and 19-22. Diacritical marks of either a single or double dash over the letter indicate uncertainty in readings. Their transcription was meticulously executed, and has stood up surprisingly well against subsequent re-readings and advances in photographic technology. The major limitation of this edition, of course, was that it presented only 5 of the known 22 columns. Brief descriptions of the unpublished columns were, nonetheless, provided, and at times these included excerpts of easily readable text. A major contribution of Avigad and Yadin was their observation that the material concerning Lamech constitutes but a small part of the narrative, and that the scroll included stories about a number of the patriarchs of Genesis, stretching from Enoch to Abram. In addition, several intriguing parallels with the books of 1 Enoch and Jubilees were identified. All of this, along with its obvious dependence on the biblical book of Genesis, led Avigad and Yadin to rename the text A Genesis Apocryphon. (Genesis Apocryphon; 2007 dissertation, by Daniel A. Machiela; pg. 54) . Subjects: Genesis Apocryphon. Aramaic. Dead Sea scroll. Selections. Clean and fresh in good jacket. Very good condition. (RAB-55-45). Bookseller Inventory #
