The Venice Shas – Prototype for All Future Gemaras
The first complete set of Talmud Bavli was printed by Daniel Bomberg at his famed printing house in Venice between the years 1520-1523. The complete set was a masterpiece, with an attractive clear type and practically free of censorship. It likewise contained new material that was printed for the first time based on handwritten manuscripts.

The Venice Shas established and set the tzuras hadaf which fixed the page count in each tractate and served as the basis for all future printings of the Gemara. Until this very day, anyone who cites a source in Shas references the daf as established in Bomberg’s Venice Shas.
