I have heard that it was first published in the Amsterdam edition of the Talmud in (5474 - 5477) 1714 - 1717. It is attributed to Rabbi Yosef Shmuel of Cracow the father of Rabbi Yehuda Aryeh Leib who published this edition of the Amsterdam Talmud.

In 1714, R. Judah Aryeh Leib ben Joseph Samuel, av beit din of Frankfurt-am-Main, arranged to have the Talmud printed in Amsterdam by Samuel ben Solomon Marquis and Raphael ben Joshua de Palacio. They began printing with Berakhot, but were forced to discontinue printing in 1717 due to the approbations issued for the 1697-1699 Frankfurt-am-Oder edition of the Talmud. These haskamot functioned as rabbinic prohibitions, or copyrights, preventing rival editions from being issued for a specified period of time.
