Companion Volume to the Dead Sea Scrolls on Microfiche Edition is a remarkably valuable reference tool for research on the Scrolls. It provides the reader with a comprehensive list of all the texts discovered in the Judean Desert by number and name. The value of this book is enhanced by the inclusion of a chronological summary of the history of the discoveries and of Scrolls research and major publications. Another article gives key details concerning each of the archaeological sites in the Judean Desert where texts or artifacts have been found. The essays on matters pertaining to photography by John Strugnell and Frank M. Cross, provide a unique insight in the early days of Scrolls research. A chronological list of the negatives, an extract from the early photographer's log book, and an extensive bibliography complete this publication.
