Hebrew: Beginners’ Book list (and the skip story)

Further to today’s discussion in the Hebrew 2 Class: Here’s a few of the priceless gems that adorn my library:

Beall, T.S., W.A. Banks & C. Smith. Old Testament Parsing Guide. Nashville: B&H Publ. 2000

Cohn-Sherbok, Dan. Biblical Hebrew for Beginners. London: SPCK, 1996

Elliger, K & W. Rudolph, eds., Biblica Hebraica Stuttgartensia. Stuttgart: Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft, 1967

Fayerabend, Karl. Langenscheidt’s Pocket Hebrew Dictionary to the Old Testament. Berlin: Langenscheidt, 1990.

Gesenius, F.R. & S.P. Tegelles. Gesenius’s Hebrew & Chaldee Lexicon. London: Samual Bagster & Sons, 1846

Kelley, Page H. Biblical Hebrew – An Introductory Grammar. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1992.

Martin, James D. Davidson’s Introductory Hebrew Grammar. Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 1993.

Mansoor, Manahem.  Biblical Hebrew Step by Step. Vol. 1. Grand Rapids: Baker Books 1979.

Weingreen, J, A Practical Grammar for Classical Hebrew,  2nd Edition,  Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1963

Also, as I claimed in class, I really did find forty books of 19th Century scholarship on Biblical Hebrew, Syriac, Samaritan etc.  (admittedly in poor condition) in a Liverpool skip during the summer of 1993, including an 1846 Gesenius and 7 dated 1817. I had them rebound and  still use them all.
