RUSSKOE BOGATSTVO (The Russian Wealth), (in November 1914 - March 1917 Russkie Zapiski, a journal, circulated from 1876 until 1918 (originally as a journal of commerce, industry, agriculture and natural sciences, in 1883-95 as a monthly literary journal, from 1906 as a monthly literary, scientific and political journal). In 1879-81 it was published by a cooperative association of writers including N. N. Zlatovratsky, G. I. Uspensky, V. M. Garshin et al. In 1892 N. K. Mikhaylovsky and V. G. Korolenko took over the editorship and imparted the publication a consistent Narodist (populist) orientation. From then onwards the journal Russkoe Bogatstvo enjoyed considerable popularity within the radical intelligentsia and youth (the circulation reached a high of 15,000 copies), engaging in polemics with Marxist disciples. The fictional section was represented by works of G. I. Uspensky, P. F. Yakubovich, N. G. Garin-Mikhaylovsky, D. N. Mamin-Sibiryak, K. М. Stanyukovich, Аlexander Kuprin, Мaxim Gorky, V. V. Veresaev et al. The publicistic section presented works of N. F. Annensky, V. P. Vorontsov (V. V. ), S. N. Krivenko, V. А. Myakotin, А. B. Petrishchev, А. V. Peshekhonov, N. S. Rusanov, V. M. Chernov, S. N. Yuzhakov et al. The journal was continuously harassed by censorship. From 1906 was the de facto printing organ of the Socialist Revolutionary Party. The editorial office was located at 52 Slonovaya Street (today Suvorovsky Avenue), in 1897-1917 - at 1/9 Spasskaya Street (today Ryleeva Street), [9/1 Baskov Street (today Korolenko Street),]; in the 1890-1910s it was one of St. Petersburg's centres of literary and public life. In 1918 the Russkoe Bogatstvo was shut down by the Bolshevik authorities.
