    Book by Rabban Yisrael Meir HaKohen of Radim. On the inner cover page and page before the cover is listed twice the word “Moga” handwritten by the author. On page 248 is a gloss that was added to later editions, so it would seem to also be in the Chafetz Haim’s handwriting. | The Chafetz Haim would stress to check everything that he published for errors in printing, so that he would not seem to publish something fraudulent and thus steal people’s money.
