Dead Sea Scrolls: The Untold Story
For two thousand years, the Dead Sea Scrolls lay hidden deep in the caves of the Judean desert, unread, untouched, and forgotten. That is, until the 1940s when by sheer happenstance a Bedouin shepherd stumbled into the first of the caves and found himself faced with the jars containing these ancient Jewish texts. The rediscovery of the scrolls sent shockwaves through several religious communities, and for half a century, historians and academics poured over the mysterious texts. Dead Sea - The Untold Story captures the excitement of this period, explaining what we have learned from these treasured works, and the truth about the ancient Hebrew sect that wrote, preserved, and died defending them.

How we describe the condition of our books
We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)
New: Exactly as it says.
As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.
Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.
Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.
Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.
Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
