Gosizdat (State Publishing House), Moscow

Established in 1919 as the State Publishing House to provide a centralized plan for private book publishers and printers still existing independently after the Russian Revolution. By 1930, Gosizdat was the base of the state conglomerate, "Association of State Publishing Houses", or OGIZ, the entity that ultimately united all Soviet publishing houses.
