With a careful selection of books, a high level of translation and printing, the publishing house has earned a reputation as the best in its field. This was the merit of its creators and employees. Based on long-term searches and careful study of various sources of information, the author traces in detail the history of the publishing house, highlights the biographies of its "founding fathers", analyzes the work on preparing the works of foreign and domestic authors for publication. A catalog of books published by Matezis from 1905 to 1925 is presented, with reviews of them in periodicals.
