Printer: Krasnii Proletarii (Red Proletarian), Moscow
Printer Notes: The 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant at 16 Krasnoproletarskaia Street in Moscow began its history under the ownership of the entrepreneur Ivan Kushnerev who 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. The shop was nationalized by the Soviets in 1919 and consigned to the Printing Section of the Moscow Economic Council under the Poligrafkniga (Book and Magazine Printing) Trust. At that point, the printing shop was re-named the 3rd State Typolithography Workshop. It became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant when its location (on Pimenovskaia Street) was re-named Krasnoproletarskaia (Red Proletarian) Street. By 1924 the printer was under the management of Gosizdat (State Publishing House). While this printer retained the Krasnii Proletarii name, its management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
