Tzvi Hirsch Sommerhausen. Hagadah LeLeil Shikurim [“Hagadah for the Night of Drunkards”]
pp. (4), 32. Original printed wrappers (worn) bound into modern marbled boards. Sm. 8vo. cf. Vinograd, Amsterdam 2705; Davidson, Parody no. 307.

Amsterdam: van Embden, 1849.

A parody for Purim based upon the motifs of the Passover Hagadah. “One of the cleverest liturgical imitations known in Hebrew literature. The diction and style of the liturgy are reproduced in it with consummate skill, but instead of devotional spirit, it is permeated with humor and fun.” I. Davidson, Parody in Jewish Literature (1966) pp. 110-111.
