All the issues of the Niva magazine have become available through the Internet, reports God Literatury. The large-scale project was implemented by Runivers. The website provides Internet users with the access to the books published in Russia in late 19th early 20th centuries. They are mainly books on Russian history, works by Russian philosophers, encyclopedias, history dockets, maps and photographs.

The Niva illustrated magazine was published in Tsarist Russia since 1870 and was focused on the family as the target group of readers. The last issue was published in 1918. Such famous Russian writers as Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Tyutchev, Maxim Gorky, Alexey Tolstoy, Afanasy Fet, Anton Chekhov, Korney Chukovsky, Anna Akhmatova, and Ivan Bunin among others published their work there.

The Niva magazine had the largest circulation among all the Russian print periodicals of that time. It was published in 9,000 copies in its first year and five years later its circulation was 18,000 and 170,000 copies of it were published in 1894. It was caused by quite low subscription fee and the quality of the published materials. In addition, the magazine subscribers received such free supplements as editions of collected works by Russian and foreign writers.

All the Niva issues are available at Runiverse website. Each year is represented by two parts including the issues published in the first and the second half of the year correspondingly.
