Does anyone know of a book of minhagim (practices) or a sidur (prayer book) of the chasidim of Dzikov (דזיקוב, sometimes דז׳יקוב)? (Or anything that would show their minhagim.)

Hebrewbooks.org doesn't seem to help: I've turned up some volumes apparently from the rebbeim of Dzikov, but no book of minhagim. Likewise, I'm not seeing anything at Google Books.

I would really love to see a website that compiles minhagim of as many different communities as possible. I guess it would be easy enough to start with Chabad and Breslev, but the communities with a less prominent internet presence are tougher. – yoel Oct 27 '11 at 17:02

+1. Thank you! I'll try to get a copy. – msh210 Oct 27 '11 at 19:26
Are there two separate seforim named Damasek Eliezer? Googling the name turns up the sefer in connection with Vishnitz. – Chanoch Oct 30 '11 at 23:24
GershonGold, and now, thanks to the wonders of ILL, I have a copy (temporarily), and, yes, he does have it. Thanks again, and a checkmark. – msh210 Nov 18 '11 at 3:17
@Chanoch There's a surprising number of them, actually. There's one by R. Eliezer Tzvi Safrin, one by R. Eliezer Papo, one by R. Eliezer Nitzberg, and one by R. Eliezer Zusman Sofer. And also there's R. Eliezer Hager, the Damasek Eliezer of Vizhnitz, who as far as I can tell did not author a sefer of that name. – Shivaram Lingamneni Aug 19 '13 at 7:33
That URL currently 404s. See books.google.com/books/about/… for the book. – Yitzchak Aug 18 '14 at 16:23
