THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 4, 1949
* Dead Sea Scrolls a hoax?
Page 19 has half a column taken up with a report headed: "BIBLE SCROLL 'FIND' SUSPECTED AS HOAX" "Dr. Zeitlin of Dropsie College Splits With Other Scholars on Dead Sea Discovery". This is a report on the recently-found Dead Sea Scrolls and curious that this report focuses on a scholar who believes them to be a hoax, ending with: "...It seems that the entire find is not an important discovery, but possibly a hoax." (see images).
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 pages, rag edition, some light damp staining, otherwise nice.
