It's a little unusual ... a discussion of the LXX, book by book. $27 for approx 600 pages. Not too shabby.

Normally, I wouldn't post Amazon, except the amazing upside price (and no tagging!).

Reviewers:

This is just about everything one could wish for in a handbook. From beginning to end it is clear, up-to-date, wide-ranging, and authoritative. The format-detailed book-by-book introductions-is a much-needed convenience.” ―Dale Allison, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA

“This volume fills a real gap in biblical scholarship, by characterizing the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, book by book. Nothing like this has hitherto existed. This is a most useful book.” ―John J. Collins, Yale Divinity School, USA

“This book will immediately establish itself as the first port of call for any serious Bible student and scholar wanting to have an informed introduction to each book in the Septuagint. Unlike with previous handbooks, each chapter is written by an expert on the subject, and the well-designed format ensures that all the main questions are described and addressed, with full bibliography as well. Careful editorial planning has resulted in a work which has no parallel in this field.” ―H. G. M. Williamson, University of Oxford, UK

“This very useful companion to each of the Septuagint books, written by young and enthusiastic experts, provides up-to-date and thorough analyses. This handbook will enrich the future study of the Greek versions of the Hebrew Bible.” ―Emanuel Tov, Hebrew University, Jerusalem

Most interestingly, on Amazon UK that book is about $35 cheaper.

Veli, .. you must be joking. My impression of you, is it might be a little too 'introductory' for you ... ergo 'handbooks'.

For anyone not familiar, the LXX is far more transparent in being book-specific ... conclusions regarding the translation in one book don't necessarily apply to the next book. Then complicating the picture, is which hebrew text was translated.  So, a resource like this can be handy.

I'm clueless on Amazon plus the UK pricing  ... I surmised some were desperate relative to the release date.  Desperate for the LXX?

I still wonder about Logos not carrying Tov's two critical books (hebrew, LXX) as well as Carta.
