And if so, several manuscripts containing Gen. 1 were found in cave 4 at
Qumran. There are a few interesting variations from the MT, but nothing
earth-shattering. Actually, the fragments of Chapter 2 are less complete. 

The original question didn't specify that James was looking for the biblical
creation account. There are quite a few ANE creations stories that pre-date
Genesis by centuries.

James, I assume you're referring to Genesis 1? There are other creation
'accounts' in biblical literature.
