These days, it is the practice of many to learn a folio of the Vilna printing of the Talmud each day. Where did this custom come from? When?

  • FWIW, most editions of Shas since Bomberg have been printed in the same pagination. – Noach MiFrankfurt Jul 28 '15 at 15:01

a ) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daf_Yomi

b) When the Daf Yomi was started the Vilna printing was not the only popular print in use and the signs that announced where folios were to be learnt and when included references to both versions of the Talmud.
