Gilbert's Royal Books is pleased to announce that it will be expanding the selection of books on the Romanovs and Imperial Russia imported from Russia this year to our online bookshop.
The selection will include beautiful photograph books, biographies, guides to palaces, and life in Tsarist Russia at the turn of the 20th century. Please note that most of the titles will be in Russian. English editions will be ordered, but only if they are available.
Our latest acquisition to be added to our selection of imported titles will be, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna in Photographs.
This is the first album entirely devoted to Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. It includes many previously unpublished photos from the personal albums of many of her contemporaries, including Anna Vyrubova, Pierre Gilliard and Sydney Gibbs, Sophia Karlovna Buxhoeveden, Colonel Alexander Nikolayevich Grabe and many others.
The book is designed like that of a family album, in which the photos depict the private world of the last Russian Empress: at home, outings, tea parties, picnics, hunting, playing, traveling on the yacht Standart. The photographs cover the period from 1906-1917.
Published in 2009, the book is a large hard cover edition of superb quality. The 160 photographs are printed on fine quality glossy paper. Text is in Russian. Copies will be available for sale in June 2010, a price has not yet been established.
