   Ten sermons by R. Zevi Hirsch ben Judah Leib of Voidislov. The title page asserts that it is part one of a much larger work with one hundred discourses delivered by the well known preacher, the sage, the late R. Zevi Hirsch, every Sabbath, in Berlin, from Rosh Hodesh Sivan 1796 through 1798. It informs that it is being printed by R. Mordecai ben Jacob of Solonim, grandson of the late R. Samuel, author of Beit Shmu’el on the Shulhan Arukh. At the bottom it says, Brothers, bring a blessing upon your house, do not let your eyes have pity on your purses. There is an introduction from Mordecai ben Jacob, in which he says that the merchants of Leipzig and Frankfort on Oder can testify to his high position and wealth, but now, due to his many iniquities these past four years his fate has changed. Nevertheless, with trust in the Lord, this desirable book has come to his hand, sweet to the palate, full of fear of the lord and truth, which he brings to press. Next is the introduction of R. Zevi Hirsch and then the ten discourses which comprise the text, set in a single column in rabbinic type.
