In that book, every couple of paragraphs, there's duplicate content. I don't think any content is missing though.

These deuplicate passages are still annoying though, and keep disrupting the reading flow.

I understand that Vyrso resources are very basic, but if that issue could be dealt with, that'd be great (maybe by running it through a newer version of the ebook to Vyrso converter, in which the bug that causes the duplication has already been fixed :-)

Jan:

I have the Kindle version. The double-text should be there, but the Vyrso edition has a formatting flaw. The first duplicate sentence is actually a highlight-type insert:

Thanks, Robert H. I would like to think if there were a Logos edition, it would look more like yours.

BTW, the Kindle version wasn't titled "...Dead Sea Scrikks"; that's a Robertism.

However Chapter Seven is really titled Chapter Sever...

Having this resource in Logos format and linking to the DSS Bible and similar resources would be awesome - not only to fix all the formatting issues.

I doubt they'd be able to fix the formatting issues. All they could do is pulling the book - which is entirely unnecessary in this case. There's no missing content, just messy content.

I've noticed that one of the QuickSource Guides has already made it into a Logos edition. Let's hope and pray that this one (and the others) will follow. (Maybe I sould buy them while still available in Vyrso...)

I have all of them Jan Krohn

It would be awesome, if they could all get in LOGOS!

Currently I see four under https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=quicksource :

and two are Logos editions: 

Note the slightly inconsistent title spelling on logos.com - the titles are okay in the Logos library, though.

That's why I didn't see the second one...

I've just noticed that I already own the Holman QuickSource Guide to Understanding the Bible. Must have come with some BP in the past... Seems to be a nice resource for a brief survey plus some historical background.

Anyway, what would be reqlly cool, if the images in the Logos edition (which are currently low quality scans) could be replaced with the original images from the ebook. The Vyrso QuickSource guide has the original images, crystal clear digital photos.

Have a look at the contrast.

Whoever made the scans didn't even bother to remove that moire pattern that's on many images.

Here's the ebook image taken from Kindle preview - also a crystal clear digital photo:
