Description Information
   6 parts in 6 volumes. 250:214 mm., 4°, mm., wide margins, usual light age and damp staining. A good set bound in later boards. Volume 4, Nezikin, is from the 1851 edition and lacks one (of two) titles.
   The Mishnah with several commentaries. The study of Mishnah is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of mishnah" (Hevrot Mishnei'ot) were and continue to be formed in every observant community. The groups often dedicate the study in memory of a deceased one and recite Kadish upon completion of the session.

In 1847 the Shapira printing press was established by the three brothers Hanina Lipa, Aryeh Leib, and Joshua Heschel Shapira, sons of R. Samuel Abraham Abba Shapira, the printer in Slavuta. Until 1862 this was one of the only two Hebrew presses the Russian government permitted to operate in the whole of Russia, the other being in Vilna. This press had 18 hand presses and four additional large presses. In 1851 Aryeh Leib broke away and established his own printing press in Zhitomir. In these two establishments only sacred books of every kind were printed.
