Gesenius’ Hebrew Grammar is the essential reference grammar for any student of classical Hebrew. As a mark of its importance this work went through twenty-eight German editions, and it still recommended by Hebrew instructors as an indispensable tool. Gorgias Press is pleased to include this time-honored guide to the Hebrew language in the Gorgias Historical Grammar series. Apart from the thorough explanation given to each aspect of grammar and syntax, this volume contains an exhaustive scriptural index which leads the user directly to passages that stand as examples of difficult constructions. A full paradigm of the Hebrew verb is also included. Gesenius’ grammar has set the bar for all subsequent treatments of the subject.

As an added bonus, the tribute to Gesenius by William Miller, The Influence of Gesenius on Hebrew Lexicography is also included in this volume. The reader is able to learn who this extraordinary figure was as they use his work.

Emil Friedrich Kautzsch (1841-1910) received his education at the University of Leipzig where he later was appointed to the faculty. He eventually received professorships at the Universities of Basel, Tübingen, and finally, Halle. Kautzsch was also notable in that he was one of the founders of the German Palestine Exploration Society. He published other works on Semitic grammar but is best known for his edition of Gesenius’ Grammar.
