Printer: 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop of Glavpoligrafizdat, Moscow
Printing date: 29-Sep-50
Printer Notes: The 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop of Glavpoligrafizdat was located at 16 Krasnoproletarskaia Street in Moscow. Glavpoligrafizdat (Main Administration for Matters of Polygraphic Industry Publishing and Book Selling) was created in 1949 to oversee printing, publishing and book selling in the USSR. As a result, OGIZ (Association of State Book and Magazine Publishers), the entity that previously administered state publishing, was dissolved and Glavpoligrafizdat was put under the Council of Ministries of the USSR, the main executive agency of the nation from 1946 until 1991.
Historically, the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii was under the ownership of the Russian entrepreneur Ivan Kushnerev. He founded the Ivan Kushnerev & Company Printing Shop in 1869 in Moscow. When Kushnerev died in 1896 his printing company was one of the largest in Imperial Russia. His print shop was nationalized by the Soviets in 1919 and consigned to the Printing Section of the Moscow Economic Council. It was placed under the Poligrafkniga (Book and Magazine Printing) Trust around 1920 and was then re-named the 3rd State Typolithography Workshop. For a brief period, it was the 20th State Typolithography Workshop and it became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant when its location (on Pimenovskaia Street) was re-named Krasnoproletarskaia (Red Proletarian) Street. The printing workshop retained the Krasnii Proletarii moniker while management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
