"second, if someone who has the Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition would be
kind as to describe it:  i.e., dimensions, quality of print, does the
hebrew/aramaic text rest on the left side while the english translation
on the facing page on the right, what color is the book, how is the
of the paper, etc..."
