Mishnah Berurah Part I. Onterhandler Press, Warsaw, 1896. [The title page lists the year of publication as 1884, but the page after it has the authorization from the censor dated 1896.] The word "מוגה" is handwritten in pencil by the author twice(!) on the leaf before the title page and on the flyleaf.

Mishnah Berurah Part III. Strerotipi Press, Pietrkov, 1907. The word "מוגה" is written on the leaf before the title page. Does not appear in the National Library nor in the Vinograd CD.

The "Chafetz Chaim," out of concern for theft or fraud, would meticulously check for printing errors in all books to be sold. Each checked book would be marked "מוגה." Many of these notations have disappeared over the years due to re-binding or erasures.

Overall fine condition. Original bindings.
