   I have a tally of the earliest provenances of Classical texts, of
   Patristic writings, and of NT writings.  I had hoped to have a list
   for the same purpose of Hebrew texts.  I find it interesting to
   know that the great Qumran Isaiah Scroll compares better with the
   Massora than the LXX but that wasn't what I asked.  I wasn't asking
   about the varieties of texts found but the provenance of them. 
   Surely the list knows.
