Prior to the October Revolution of 1917, there were few printing presses and lithography studios in Uzbekistan and the majority served the Imperial Russian administration. Starting in 1920, the Turkestan State Publishing House (the first publisher in the "Soviet East") started a trend whereby various publishing houses across the Central Asian republics were developed. Ѳznaşr was one of the branch houses formed during the early period of Soviet administration in Uzbekistan.
