Sounds like he doesn't want to loan out his own stuff!!

I am pretty sure its Eduard.
The title is "Die Texte aus Qumran"

Nope.  Princeton U. is currently making them available. 2 vol. out already
(of 10 projected).  Westminster is the publisher.

About the recent stuff- the best you can do is get either a journal where
they are published; the Discoveries in the Judean Desert volumes you want;
or look for yourself at the photos available in 2 volumes from (and I hate
to say it) the Biblical Archaeology Society.

(and if you really get in a bind I will photocopy the Hebrew side of Lohse
for you- but don't tell anyone)  :)
