orion Brill Publications on the DSS

Dear Orionites:

I think Orion's iniciative of listing the latest Brill publications 
on the DSS is very useful, and will help every intrerested scholar to 
be aware of the latest publication on the topic. But it will only be 
useful  on the condition that the information there presented is 
accurate and up to date. This do not seems to be the case with the 
first listing placed on Orion site.

It is not complete in so far as the number 32 of the Series STDJ 
[D. Parry -E. Qi,mron, The Great Isaiah Scroll. A New Edition, Brill 
1999, 109 pp. big format, ISBN 90 04 11277 4) appeared already some 
time ago (the lastest number of this Series listed is number 31).

It is not accurate, and this could be misleiding. The latest 
publication listed is  the Study Edition (by myself and E.J.C. 
Tigchelaar), which is ptresented as forthcoming in October 1999, with 
approximately 1500 pages. Or, the Scond and last volume of this work 
containing the edition and translation of 4Q274 - 11Q31, appeared 
already in December 1998 [the first volume, with the edition and 
translation of 1Q1 - 4Q273 was published in 1997]The total number of 
page of both volumes, which are paginated seriatim, amount to 1360. 
This means that the work is not forthcoming, but it has been 
available for a couple of months

Also the first volume of The Dead Sea Scrolls after Fifty Years, by 
Flint and VanderKam appeared in 1998, not in February 1999 as 

May be Dr. Pinnick, who is doing all of us such a good service, can 
start directly with the promissed up-dates of the list.

Witl all best wishes.
