Vernyhora publishing house
Vernyhora publishing house [Вернигора (видавництво)]. A publishing house founded by Pavlo Kashynsky in 1916 in Kyiv. By the end of 1917 it had issued some 30 publications: popular books and pamphlets on Ukrainian history and culture, a school grammar, fables, poetry, short stories, political pamphlets, a map of Ukraine, placards, and translations of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Molière’s Tartuffe, and Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra. It continued operating in Kyiv until 1921. A branch of Vernyhora functioned in Vienna from 1918 to 1923. Kashynsky renewed the press in Munich in 1946 and published a few more works there until 1948 (eg, M. Dolnytsky’s geography of Ukraine, Ivan Krypiakevych’s history of Ukraine, and M. Terletsky’s histories of the Middle Ages and the modern world).
