A Complete Dictionary of Ancient and Modern Hebrew. 8-vol. set (Complete)
Ben Yehuda, Eliezer
Quarto. Original green cloth with gold lettering on spines and front covers. Remarkable international edition of Eliezer Ben Yehuda's crowning achievement, published on the 100th anniversary of its author's birth. The 8 volumes of the Dictionary contain the great treasure of ancient biblical Hebrew - the language of the prophets and law-makers, the kings and poets whose immortal words have brought light to the world. They also comprise the additional resources added to the language by the post-Biblical sages and poets, authors and philosophers in successive generations. The glory of the Dictionary are the innovations of Ben Yehuda and his successors who have rejuvenated an ancient language, enriched its treasures, perfected its force of expression, and converted it once more into the living language of modern life in a renascent Hebrew homeland. Very minor shelf wear. Sporadic and minor soiling on endpapers. Text in Hebrew. Binding and interior in overall good+ to very good condition.
