(The Field), a Russian weekly illustrated family magazine published in St. Petersburg from 1870 to 1918 by the publishing house of A. F. Marks. Niva published many diverse writers, including P. D. Boborykin, I. A. Goncharov, N. S. Leskov, D. N. Mamin-Sibiriak, D. S. Merezhkovskii, L. N. Tolstoi, A. P. Chekhov, I. A. Bunin, and A. A. Blok. Sociopolitical problems were presented from the point of view of those loyal to the autocracy. From 1894 to 1916 monthly literary supplements were published. Beginning in 1891 the collected works of many Russian and foreign writers were issued in the form of free supplements to Niva, which gave the magazine a large circulation and popularity.
