5.0 out of 5 stars Truly excellent, 1 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Camera and the Tsars: The Romanov Family in Photographs (Hardcover)
A brilliant Romanov photo album at a reasonable price? Yes, it is possible!

As most Romanov lovers will know, the best photograph books are virtually impossible to get hold of unless you're willing to part with serious cash. Charlotte Zeepvat's book, however, is a real gem and it's a steal.

I got this for Christmas, but unlike some other gifts, I am sure I will continue to be delighted with this one for many years. It is beautifully done, with many, many pictures, most of which I had never seen before. It is not all about Nicholas, Alexandra and their children, but more concerned with the Romanov family as a whole, spanning from the family of Alexander II to the various emigres who scattered across Europe and America after the Revolution. Each photograph comes with a clear explanation of who the people are, with the main details about their lives in a concise format. There are many familiar faces from the courts of Europe both as children and as adults, and also many unfamiliar faces, such as those of the more obscure Grand Dukes and Duchesses.

This book is an excellent investment, as I am sure it will be treasured by every owner for many years to come. It is an invaluable reference tool when reading biographies, as Zeepvat's extensive inclusion of practically all the members of the Romanov family means that there is literally a face to put to every name you may come across in other works.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a low priced Romanov photograph album while you can! If this ever goes out of print, the prices will go sky high!
