This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

The original publication of A Treatise on the Use of the Tenses in Hebrew and Some Other Syntactical Questions (1894) launched S. R. Driver's career and placed him at the forefront of Hebrew grammar and biblical studies. The reason is simple: this work was the first attempt in English to expound the principles of Hebrew syntax on lines at once philosophical and scientific. All modern study of Hebrew has been founded on the Tenses, and it remains perhaps the most interesting and original book that Drive wrote. Its final edition was hailed as the best single study of the Hebrew verbal system. Even critics conceded it to be an exciting and brilliant work that shaped future discussion of the Hebrew and Semitic verb.

This Biblical Resources Series edition of Driver's classic work, which adopts the third and final edition of the Tenses (1892), includes Driver's expanded and improved version of the text as well as a lengthy new introductory essay by W. Randall Garr on the history of the Tenses and its enduring importance as a manual for today's students of the Hebrew language.
