Printer: 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop of the Poligrafkniga Trust of Ogiz RSFSR, Moscow
Printer Notes: The 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop on 16 Krasnoproletarskaia Street in Moscow began its history under the ownership of the Russian entrepreneur Ivan Kushnerev. In 1869, Kushnerev founded the Ivan Kushnerev & Company Printing Shop and when he died in 1896, his printing company was one of the largest in Imperial Russia. The Ivan Kushnerev 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 then re-named the 3rd State Typolithography Workshop. By 1921, it was briefly re-named the 20th State Typolithography Workshop and then, it became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant around the time that its location (on Pimenovskaia Street) was re-named Krasnoproletarskaia (Red Proletarian) Street. By late 1924 the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii was placed under the management of Gosizdat (State Publishing House). The printer retained the Krasnii Proletarii moniker while its management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
