Printer Notes: Prior to Soviet nationalization, the 1st Exemplary workshop was the Sharapov-Sytin Partnerhip. Ivan Sytin, a book-publishing magnate, had his printing shop at Valovaia and Piatnitskaia streets in Moscow. Around 1918, Sytin's printing plant and the Royal (state) Print Yard were both nationalized by the Bolsheviks. The Print Yard was transformed into Gosizdat, the State Publishing House. In 1931, the "1st Exemplary Gosizdat printing workshop (formerly Sytin)" was placed under the Ogiz publishing partnership. Gosizdat, as added to the shop's name, signifies the 1st Exemplary processed jobs for the State Publishing House.
