Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 446 pages. Published in 1995. The author's account on subject. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Norman Golb's "Who Wrote The Dead Sea Scrolls?". A fascinating new interpretation of the origin and meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and a thoroughly engrossing read. 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. An absolute "must-have" title for Judaica collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully 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". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The author is a Voting Member of the Institute while the recipients are among its most well-known supporters. This title is late-modern classic. This is one of very few such signed and inscribed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most authoritative historians of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 002544395X. Bookseller Inventory # 1410
