Dear Brent,

I am not aware of any book which lists all the differences. In my 1951 copy
of "Biblica Hebraica" there are a lot of footnotes referring to the Isaiah
Scroll, and Kutcher discussed most of the differences in his dissertation
on this Scroll. But I am not aware of any book, which in a systematical way
has listed all the differences, small and great ( I have not yet seen the
new edition of the scroll). What has Kevin, the expert librarian on the
list, to say about this?

I will be interested to know how you have done your work. Have you ,for
instance, listed all the differences between the texts verse by verse?
