Established in 1994, Gilbert's Books is the publishing division of Royal Russia. We are a unique publishing company based in Canada, that specializes in the publication of quality books on the Romanov Dynasty and Imperial Russia.

We offer a selection of biographies and memoirs by members of the Russian Imperial Family, as well as members of the Russian aristocracy and nobility. These include reprints of memoirs that were written nearly 100 years ago, and are available in handsome hard cover editions, complete with all of the original text and photographs. We also publish a new series of biographies and memoirs by both historical and contemporary authors in attractive soft cover editions, complete with full colour covers. We also have translated several memoirs from Russian and French, thus offering 1st English editions.

In 2011 we launched a new periodical Royal Russia Annual. Published once a year, this magazine celebrates the history of the Romanov dynasty and Imperial Russia in words and photographs. Each issue offers many new, previously unpublished articles about the Romanovs and the beauty of Old Russia.

We are proud of the dedication we have made to keep the memories of Old Russia alive through our publishing program, and it is our sincere hope that we have made some small contribution to a better understanding and appreciation of the Romanov Dynasty and the contribution they made to Russian history during their 304-year-reign.
