   Eulogy for R. Jehiel Michael Ettinger by R. Abraham Joseph Samuel ben Israel Jonah ha-Levi Landau. The title page states that woe to the children of Israel, who dwell in the land of Poland, for our glory has been taken, our choicest leader, for us is bitter weeping and wailing. A half-title page stating the name of the eulogyu and author follows the title page. The text of the eulogy follows in two columns in rabbinic type.

R. Abraham Joseph Samuel ben Israel Jonah ha-Levi Landau (1800–1836), a member of the well-known Landau rabbinical family, was appointed to succeed his father, R. Israel Jonah ben Joseph ha-Levi Landau, (d. 1824), as rabbi of Kempen on the recommendation of R. Akiva Eger. R. Joseph Samuel was the author of Mishkan Shiloh, of which only one part, Kur ha-Behinah (Breslau, 1837), was published, comprising 25 responsa and seven sermons - the last in honor of Emperor Frederick William III. In the introduction the author refers to many works of his still in manuscript. His Goren Atad (Warsaw, 1837), a memorial sermon on R. Jehiel Michael Ettinger, has also been published. He corresponded on halakhah with the leading rabbis of his time, including R. Akiva Eger, R. Ephraim Zalman Margulies, and R. Solomon Zalman Posner.
