Specifications: [4] leaves, 24 cm. Paper jacket.

The eulogy includes the line.."the power of chassidut and the glory of his deeds and dedication to the laws of Yisrael, it seems as if all people of the world cannot compare to him in his dedication..."
Not listed by the Bibliography of the Hebrew Book and not in the National Library. To the best of our knowledge, this work is not in any large public library in the world. Rabbi Meir Wunder's Chachmei Galicia includes a list of printed eulogies for Admors; however, it does not include this work. 

Background: Eulogy for Rabbi Yehoshua of Belz. The eulogy was delivered two days after his death on the 23rd of Shevat and was printed less than a month later. Rabbi Moshe Hauser was a preacher who moved from Galina to Brodye. Refer to: Chachmei Galicia 2, 83; the entry does not mention this eulogy.

Condition: Fine. Small marginal tears. Brittle paper. Aging stains.
