This printer was the lithographic partnership of R.R. Golike and A.I. Vil’borg in St. Petersburg located at 11 Zvenigorodskaia Street. It became the 15th State Typography Workshop after Soviet nationalization and in 1922 was placed into the Poligraftrust where it became the "Petropechat' Typolithography named for Fedorov". Ivan Fedorov (c.1525-1583) is often referred to as the first Russian printer. In the decades following, the shop was called the 3rd Typography Workshop as well as the Fedorov workshop.
