A bibliographic curiosity is the fact that “f. 120v” has been duplicated on the facing page “141r” - except that the latter contains a line and a half missing in the former, from “ve’ovrim” until “she’ein zo netilah kol ikar.” The explanation for this curiosity is rather obvious. Realizing the omission of these lines, the printer then proceeded to reprint the entire page supplying the missing text.
