Printer: 3rd Krasnii Proletarii (Red Proletarian) Typography Workshop of the Poligrafkniga Trust of Ogiz, Moscow
Printer Notes: 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop at 16 Krasnoproletarskaia Street began its history under the ownership of the Russian entrepreneur Ivan Kushnerev who founded the Ivan Kushnerev & Company Printing Shop in 1869. When Kushnerev died in 1896 his printing company was one of the largest in Imperial Russia. It became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant when 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 printing workshop thereafter retained the Krasnii Proletarii name while its management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
