   Discourses and eulogies by R. Zevi Hirsch ben Judah Leib of Wodislaw. The title page has a decorative frame and states that it is Erez Zevi, written by me, the young (insignificant) Zevi ben R. [Judah Leib] Maggid Mesharim in Wodislaw. At the bottom is publication information in Gerrman and below that the disclaimer concerning current gentiles in contrast to those of ancient times. There are approbations from R. Ezekiel Landau, (Noda bi-Yehudah, 1713–1793), R. Isaac Levi of Levov, R. Eliezer Kalir, R. Jeremiah of Mattesdorf, R. Gershon Hayyat of Nikolsberg, and R. Lemel ha-Levi of Glogau. There is an introduction from the author and the text, which is in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words. Each of the discourses begins with the word Ir (city), for example, Ir Hebron, Ir Katan, Ir Emet, and Ir Miklat. Each of these homilies are further divided into numbered batim. The volume concludes with an index of sources.
