Printer Notes: This printing workshop was the A.A. Levenson partnership prior to nationalization. In 1887, Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Levenson developed a new printing plant with a ‘speed press’ in Moscow and thereafter, his operations expanded to 450 workers by 1913. During World War I, Levenson's plant was subjugated by Zemgorom (Chief Army Supply Committee of the All-Russian Union of Cities and Towns) around 1917. With the Russian Revolution that same year, the Levenson partnership was nationalized by the Soviets and transferred (around 1920) to MSNKh (Moscow Council of National Economy) as the 16th State Printing Workshop under the Mospechat’ Trust for printing. Subsequently, the 16th State Printing Workshop was placed under the Mospoligraf Trust.
