   On difficult passages in Talmudic aggadah and Midrashim by R. Baruch ben Jonah Ettelsohn. The title page informs that R. Ettelsohn was the author of Tikvah Yisrael on the Pesah Haggadah and Kanfei Yonah on the Midrash Hazit. The title is from, “Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle (te'ome tseviyah)” (Song of Songs 7:4). It further informs that it was edited by the author’s son, N. B. Ettelsohn. A second title page has the same information as the first. On the verso of the second title page R. Ettelsohn writes that he entitled the work Te'ome Tseviyah in memory of his mother Zivyah. There are approbations from R. Mattityahu Strashun (1819–1885) of Vilna; R. Joseph Fuenn (1818-90), also of vilna; R. Mordecai Plongin of Vilna, R. Zevi Kohen of Dinaborg; and and R. Shimon ha-Levi Horowitz of Leipzig in a letter to R. Raphael Nathan Nata Rabbinovicz (1835–1888). The text follows in two columns in square letters. The aggadah and midrashim are set bolder letters than the commentary of R. Ettelsohn. At the end of the volume are errata.
