A.I. Mamontov Typography Partnership, Moscow

Anatolii Ivanovich Mamontov (1839-1905). Mamontov began publishing around 1862 with press he borrowed from the Lazarev Institute in Moscow. By 1863, he established a publishing company and in 1871, he acquired a building in Moscow to house his print shop. In 1892, the print shop became the Association of Typography of A.I. Mamontov. In addition to printing, Mamontov created a workshop to manufacture toys. The first Russian matryoshka (nesting doll set) was reportedly created at his workshop and was painted by Sergei Maliutin, illustrator of children's books and posters.
