BOOK DESCRIPTION

This is the untold story of the Honourable Albert Stopford, Edwardian man-about-town. A member of the English aristocracy, Stopford was accepted in all the best salons of London, Paris and St Petersburg and counted society hostesses, Russian nobility and members of the Ballets Russes among his closest friends.

He was a dealer in object d’arts with both Faberge and Cartier, and as a regular guest at Romanov dinner tables and a personal friend of two of the men accused of the murder of Rasputin, he relished his role as the eyes and ears for Whitehall in the Russian capital. Indeed such was the trust bestowed upon him by his peers, it would lead him all the way to the inner sanctum of Tsar Nicholas II.

Amid the turmoil of the 1917 revolution, Stopford risked his life to rescue Romanov jewels worth millions of pounds from under the nose of Russia's new authorities. Once back in Britain, gems would emerge from his shabby Gladstone bages that were destined to adorn the rich and famous--queens, duchesses and film stars--for years to come.

The illustrations in this book include an 1894 photo of Europe’s royal houses, family portraits of Russian tsars and nobility, war photos and other rarely seen images.

This book will appeal to devotees of Russian (and European) history as well as to collectors with an historical bent.
