View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This volume is a reproduction of two photograph albums belonging to the Russian Imperial Family, some of which were taken by Tsar Nicholas II's daughters, as well as by the Tsar himself. The first album, created by the Grand Duchess Maria, contains 40 b&w personal photographs, previously unpublished, of Imperial life. The second, which belonged to the Tsarina Alexandra, has some 30 photographs, unseen until now, of the Romanovs at work with their subjects and relaxing at home and on their estates. An additional 30 rare prints complete this record of a priviliged era that vanished in 1918. These albums are part of the estate of the Romanov historian, James Blair Lovell, passed on to him by Gleb Borkin, the son of the family doctor who was executed with the Imperial Family in 1918. Many of the photographs are accompanied by captions translated from the original Russian. This text gives detail on their social, historical and political background. When James Blair Lovell died in 1994, he left an important archive of Romanov documents and artefacts. Anthony Summers is the author of "The File on the Tsar" with Tom Mangold, "Conspiracy: Who Killed President Kennedy?" , "Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe" and "Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover".
