While were on the subject, was the complete copy of Isaiah found near
Qumran, 1QIsa(a), a single scroll? If so, was that arrangement atypical of
this period, to have a long book on one scroll?

BTW, on the whole question of Primary and Secondary ... studies of the DSS
Isaiah, LXX (Old Greek) and MT Isaiah certainly call into question any
simplistic notions ...
