The Oxford Companion to the Book

Grzhebin, Zinovii Isaevich (1877–1929) Editor 

of the satirical magazine Zhupel (Bugbear) (1905–6) and founder of the publishing house Shipovnik (1906). He became the technical editor of the ‘*World Literature’ series in 1919 through the offices of his friend Maxim Gorky. That same year, he founded his own house, Izdatel’stvo Z. I. Grzhebina, in Petrograd. Having moved to Berlin in 1921, he published in his own right, partly under contract to Gosizdat. His firm went bankrupt in 1923.
