Since Felix was so generous and got this ball rolling, I would like to continue it! I think it would be a great, forum building activity if we all did something for our fellow memebers. Here are my list of duplicates I own, and will ship to anyone who needs them:

"The File on the Tsar" - By Anthony Summers & Tom Mangold
"The Lost Fortune of the Tsars" - By William Clarke
and
"The Last Tsar: The Life and Death of Nicholas II" - By Edvard Radzinsky

A few years ago, I lent two of my favorite Romanov books to a friend. Unpacking after a move, I realized that the books had never been returned.
Through the generosity of Felix, I now have those books again.....many, many thanks.

Wow, this really is a great idea! I end up with duplicates all the time because I can never remember what I have. I will have to look through my bookcase now. Off the top of my head, I know I have an extra copy of THE LAST TSAR in Russian. I picked it up when I was in Russia, but because the covers were different, I thought they were different books. When I got hom, I realized they were the same. I don't know how many takers for a Russian version, but I would love to swap for something else  :).

I contacted Ellie (Alicky1872) about this and she still had this book last time we talked, which was on February 26th. I was interested in the book, but since she lives in England, shipping for it was too much for me. But you can try contacting her and see if she still has it - she very well may.

I have a fictional mystery/spy book called "The House of Special Purpose" by Christopher Hyde that I'd be happy to send off or trade.  :D

It is a paperback that I ordered from Amazon.com thinking it was the Sydney Gibbes book.  When I rec'd it however it was set in WWII and just has too much spy stuff in it for me. :-/

I was send a message by one of our members however saying that it was actually a very good read.  I really don't care for most fictionalized books - especially when they somewhat veer off the Romanov subject for any length of time - so it is up for grabs!   :D

Just message me and I'll send it to you! ;D

I'd be glad to swap. I have an extra copy of Dearest Child (the first set of QV/Vicky letters) since I got the titles confused.

I also have The Great Hohenzollern Scandal about Moretta's 2nd marriage but I'm still debating that one. If anyone's interested though I can speed up my thought process.  :)

I also think I have an extra copy of Giles St Aubyn's bio on Bertie.

OK, scrap that--books taken care of.  :)  I'll have to do some digging around the bookcase.  As I prepare to move it may be a good time to unload some books--though if it's a swap I guess I'm not really getting rid of anything am I?  :)

Whatever it's supposed to be it's the most appalling book ever written!!! It is fiction but it doesn't say 'a novel' & it comes with a family tree which makes it appear as thought it's fact. When I began it I thought it was non-fiction but by page 4 or something I thought it was the biggest load of dross I'd  ever set eyes on & it went down hill from there!
Burn it, tear it into pieces, put dynamite in it, drop it down a well, cover it in boiling oil, do anything except read it because it just makes you want to explode!!!!

I have a paperback book entitled "The House of Special Purpose" by Christopher Hyde.

It is a FICTIONAL book - not the one written by the Grand Duchess's tutor.  
It deals with a spy story about tracing an artifact from the Romanovs during WWII.   ;)

For any spy novel fans crossover Romanov fans out there, it would be very good.  ;D

I ordered it from Amazon.com in the thought that it would be the other book by the same name - oops!  ::)

Happy to send it to whomever would like it!  I just don't like spy stories!

Hello Penny,

Yes, i have recently found one original copy of this book. I am  impressed you know it because it's seems not to be very known. I have also open a thread about it to have people opinion about this book because, as far as I am conceirned, it's the worst book about this subjects I have ever read.

At beginning, author say he want to carry on the inquiry, find new elements, etc. OK. it's seems to be interesting with the visit of Ipatiev House by author but after first chapters; we learn nothing new and the the author loses himself in out-subjects reflexions (like scene in theater) and the reconstitution of the drama holds on 3 pages. I for my part was very disappointed by this book and there is non pictures, maps, or other doc! What about you Penny ?

the first book is from Michel de Saint Pierre and it's about Romanov Czar and have two parts (I have just the part two about Nicolas II)

It's a classical one and very interesting (not especialy about the inquiry or thesis about their death) so I recommend to everybody

you can found ref about it at :

I live in Hawai'i.....and I sent a book off to Anna from the Netherlands!  It continually amazes me how global our (not so little) group is!

I hope this keeps going - it is not only a great way to share our books that we have enjoyed - but also fun to meet people from all over the world!  :D

For my part, I am still waiting (sigh! :-[ ) for "Romanov Autumn" that I purchased from EBay on 3/18.  The USPS
says it was rec'd in California on 4/3, but after that, they throw up their hands and say "I don't know"!  :'(
How frustrating is that -- after waiting sooo long for that book!  Well, I'm keeping fingers crossed that it is (literally) on a slooow boat and will eventually make it here!

Hey guys,

I was looking for a copy of Royal Cabinets Portraits of the Victorian Era by David Cripps. I know the book is kinda "rare" and I am sure many people might not have two copies of it. But if someone did, I would really appreciate it.

In return and in appreciation I would send my Relatively Royal book by Robert Golden.

Thanks very much,

Amani
P.S. Please PM me.

Ok Peeps,
I have an extra copy of:
The House Of Special Purpose: An Intimate Portrait of the Last Days of the Russian Imperial Family

It's up for takes!  :)

Well, it looks as if there are TWO copies of "The House of Special Purpose" up for grabs - "an intimate account of the Last Days of the Russian Imperial Family compiled from the papers of their English Tutor Charles Sydney Gibbes by J.C. Trewin" -- whew!  Long title, no?   :-X

I have 2 copies of this hardback book and obviously only need one - if someone would like this book for trade.....let me know - but remember, Laura is first!  ;D

Again, if you are, please PM me. I would REALLY like a copy of the cripps book.

Since I think I pretty much know all there is to know, I'll read a book and go, "I've heard this 38445863455 times!"  So therefore I like to look at photographs since there's always something new there...

Hi Laura!

I'm asking you first, because I know that you posted first -  (hope Janet R doesn't mind! :)  ).  Do you still have this available?  I don't have much to trade, the only duplicate book I have is Radzinsky's "The Last Tsar".  Or perhaps I could just pay you for the book and postage?  Please feel free to PM me  :D

You can still get/buy ALL the back issues of 'Royalty Digest' even though the owner Paul Minet has announced he is ceasing  publication from June 2005. He still has stocks of the back issues.

Further details on their Web Site at:
http://www.picrare.com/Royalty_Digest/

This site was down when I checked a couple of minutes ago but most likely is a temporay glitch as Paul Minet was not aware of any problems when I asked him about it.

I personally enjoyed it very much - it does portray the IF in a very sentimental way - but much like I think of them at least!   ;D

Can't wait till I have something worthwile to trade/offer! I have only Massie's N & A  and Final Chapter, along with a lot of good Russian lit (most of which unhappily in storage right now).
I posted a note on the Russian literature thread here a few days ago; still looking for tips on the best translations & editions of literature/plays etc.
Any recommendations on what to read next? I really like the most historically correct & well-researched (i.e., not just photos or conspiracy theory-oriented) work.
As soon as I do start finding more, I will certainly offer here what I don't need!

Well, I have gone thru my Romanov books and decided that I have 3 that I can part with for trade (and I am open to other Royal books, especially Queen Victoria's family) -- here they are:

1.  The Kitchen Boy by Robert Alexander (fiction)   :-/

2. The Rasputin File by Edvard Radzinsky   :-X

3.  The Escape of Alexei by Vadim Petrov, Igor Lysenho, and Georgy Egorov   ???

I have read all of these and I enjoyed "The Kitchen Boy" for what it was worth (harmless fiction), "The Rasputin File" not too much as I'm not much into Radzinsky's style of prose.  and "The Escape of Alexei" is an entertaining read, if completely unbelievable.

Anyone want to trade?  Just PM me!   :D

Ok, gang, I'm ready to join the book-swapping game! Here's what I've got:


I'm especially interested in Fall of the Romanovs, House of Special Purpose (by Trewin!), and Rasputin: the saint who sinned. I own very little on Rasputin so far. I love photo books, but I've got lots. Russian-language books are ok with me, too. And -- if I don't get it for my birthday on Aug 21 -- I'd really like the special FoTR edition of Atlantis Magazine. But please, make an offer, even if what you've got to swap doesn't appear in my requests!

I live in the US, but could be persuaded to ship outside the states for a juicy trade.  8)

I want to quote this, because this is the whole reason I joined this thread. Felix's generosity was such a sweet gesture, the only way we can really repay his kind actions is to follow his example. So many members have been so generous and kind.

Kudos Everyone  :-*

I can add also to the previous post that Janet sent me very kindly with  the "house of special purpose" book some chocolate of her country ! My parents has recently received it (it took about three month to arrive in France !!) and will brought it to me soon...

Janet, could you send me in private your postal adress so that I could send you at my turn my book (Sokolov book) with presents from Paris (I have just found them...  :))

Hi everyone!

I have Rasputin:the Last Word a book that I brought with the intention to read but I later found it too be a little too complex for my understanding ;D!

I am putting it here to trade becasue I desperately want a copy of a book called the Kitchen Boy, that I cannot find in any shop near me, and the prices on internet websites are out of my range!

Unfortunately I would only be able to trade in the U.K because this book is extremely heavy and would cost me a small fortune to send abroad!

I am sorry I cannot spread my kindness as much as some members of this thread by giving away their books freely, but I am desperate for all the Romanov books I can find, I'll read anything I can get my hands on  ;D!

If anyone has any Romanov books they may be interested in please feel free to PM me with a list of things we could trade or you would be willing to give.

I commend what people are doing on this thread by giving away their books it is very kind of you!

Best

P.S. I could of almost cried when I saw an earlier poster had a copy of the Kitchen boy! I would of done anything to have that! You don't by any chance still have that do you koloagirl?

Alas, she sent The Kitchen Boy to me in exchange for a couple of books about Edward VII. Tell you what, I'll either send it on to you when I've finished or find you one in a used bookstore here; it was all over Barnes and Noble's remainder table a year or so ago.

Thankyou very much Simon ;D! I am very glad that a real Romanov lover got the book it would be too bad if it was shipped off to a charity shop!

It is very kind of you to offer to send it to me, take all the time you want reading it! Once you have finished reading the Kitchen Boy  would you like Rasputin the Last Word?

Thankyou Julia for your comment!

Thanks once again Simon you're wonderful, I've read the book sypnosis and it sounds like the kind of book I'd love.

Felix does it all the time! He just sent me a copy of Fate of the Romanovs (which I gave to a friend and she just loves, by the way -- thanks Felix!) and it cost me absolutely nothing. Some people trade books with each other, and some just give them away.


By the way:
Anybody got a copy of Rasputin: the Saint Who Sinned?
My bio of Grand Duchess Ella is still available. (hint, hint)  ;)

Yup, and I do this as well.

The world has changed so much and almost everyone is out there to find "What's in it for me?" Maybe it's my disgust for the "selfish" ways of the world that also inspire me to do this.... as well as Felix!

People on this board are interested in educating others. lt is certainly a much cheaper option than always having to buy the books and the best part-you get the information inside the book. ;D Unless you live internationally, shipping in the USA should only cost you a few dollars, an inexpensive way of getting more for your money.

Aloha all!   :D

Sorry I haven't posted earlier, but I was away for a few days --
"Louis Charles", so glad that you got your copy of "The Kitchen Boy"....the mail was really fast for you!  Sometimes it is so slow I can't believe it (it took 3 months for Bernard to receive his book in France!) and sometimes it gets to you quicker than if I sent a letter to someone in my own state!

Laura, your copy of "The Rasputin Files" was sent at the same time as "The Kitchen Boy" so it should be to you very soon I hope!

I do still have the two books I mentioned earlier up for anyone - the "Escape of Alexei" and the Carrolly Erickson biography of Alexandra.  

So Julia.Montague, if you would like either of these books, please send me via PM your postal address -- and what I do is check at my post office how much it costs me to send it to you -- as long as it isn't some ridiculous amount -- I don't mind paying for shipping to you -- many people don't have books to trade and that is fine - maybe a postcard from your part of the world?

Anyway, those 2 books are still up for "grabs" and just let me know.

I have been the recipient of some wonderful books also....mostly due to the generosity of Felix!  So I like to continue in the spirit this thread was started - to share books that we have enjoyed!   :D

And Louis Charles -- I am looking forward to reading the books you sent to me!!

Glad to see this thread alive and well!   :)

Hi!

I have a lot of books in russian about the last tsarfamily. I don´t know if anybody here speaks russian, I "did" som years ago, but know I have forgotten so much that I can´t read them anymore.

I also have a videotape called "tsareobijtsa" ( I think it means tsarmurder) bought in Russia, PAL system

Finally I have some "Imperial Russian Journal" if anyones interested?

I have seen some very interesting books here, but always to late....    :-/

Hi Karin,

I don't think I have any of these, but I have to confirm. I would love to trade, so I have to check what I have that' I can send you. Off the top of my head, I know I have the biography of Catherine of Aragon by Mattingly and a biography of Marie Antoinette, I forget the author. Not sure what I have as far as the Romanovs, but I know that there are books I can spare, although probably not as many as you have. Would you please PM me so that we can make arrangements? Thanks again.

Karin, if you'd like, and if you have access to a scanner or a digital camera, you can scan or take pictures of the synopsis pages of these books and either post or send them to me, and I can translate them for you. That way you will know exactly what each book is about.

Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Helen_Azar on September 14, 2005, 09:01:45 AM
Karin, the Tatiana book sounds like some sort of a religious/mystical work.

“...In this book, the author and the main characters live in a world that is real, although a lot of what happens to them seems like a fantasy - it is not fantasy. The reader does not need an overly imaginative mind in the world where God is king – the creator of this world- anything is possible! All fantasy dims in comparison… “

Sounds a little odd... but could be interesting.

BTW, I have the Belyakova book - I recognized the cover! I haven't attempted to read yet...

I have a book by this same author (Elizabeth Heresh)about Tsarevich Alexei... I think the original language she writes in is German (or perhaps Dutch), right?

and, I also received "The Rasputin File" written by Edvard Raskinsky by the repeating generosity of Koloagirl!

On that note, I would like to express what I have up for takes:

"In War's Dark Shadow - The Russians Before The Great War" by Bruce Lincoln
"Peter The Great" by Robert K. Massie
"The Lost Fortune of the Tsars" - William Clarke

Hi Tania!

I got your PM and I answered you with this PM on Sep 21st:

"Hi

It is one film and four "newspapers" from Imperial Russian Journal. I can send them to you.  

I have been in a little rush sending packages all over the world and there have been a lot of stamps.... But the film and the papers aren´t so heavy so I hope it won´t cost so much sending them!

Karin"

Then I got a strange PM from you that seemed to be sent to the wrong person, something about that someone in my family was sick or something like that, and I haven´t written anything about any family members to anyone, that´s why I assumed that you had sent the PM to the wrong person by mistake.

Maybe I misunderstood you? :-/

I have already answered that you can have the film and the newspaper, but the package cannot come to the US over night from Europe... You have to be a little patient!!!  ;)

Septemer 26, 2005

Dear Jekaterina,

Please accept my sincere apologies!  :-[ I apologize profusely!!! Now that i have received your e-mail, I see you have received my initial e-mail. I certainly look forward to be in receipt of the Russian journal, and other news items. So will my in-laws be very happy.  :)

My error was, I had not received any real concrete understanding that you received my post. I sent my initial word to you that I would be most happy to send a check to you to cover the expenses of sending it overseas to me. I would feel very badly if you were left to pay for sending this to me. I'm not above making sure these expenses would be sent to you immediately. When I received the second e-mail from you, I gathered erroneously, that you had not received my initial e-mail, or some snafu had developed.  :-[

I certainly did not send to you nor receive from you any mail of any relative being ill. I'm glad we have discerned what the issue or impasse was, that impeded a clear avenue of communication.

If you would be so kind as to send me your address, I will send you the check forthwith to pay for sending the video, and other news items. My address is : Tatiana -  Box 22162 - San Francisco - Ca. 94122.3218

It seems as if you are most thoughtful and kind, in sending to persons around the globe books, etc. I thank you very much for your extreme kindness and thoughtfullness, and remain most

Respectfully,
Tatiana [Tania]

Dear Laura and Georgiy,

Thank you so much for your posts, and your concern for my safety. Lol, at 62, with one foot on the bananna peel, I can't get far. But between my off beat sense of humor, and the two canes I use to push myself around in my wheelchair, anyone trying to get a hold of me would have a pretty difficult time...and they could not possibly run fast enough!  :-*

But, seriously, your quite right, it is important not to post one's address for public notice. However, my post box address is my business post, so I'm not worried. Besides, a family member is a special detective in the police department, and would be on the problem in a half a second. I'm well covered than most for several reasons, including citified.

Thanks again for your taking time to care about our members, and to the safety on the internet.

Does anyone happen to have an extra copy of Little Mother of Russia by Coryne Hall? Recently, when I finally overcame my laziness in buying this book, prices have gone through the roof. Apparently it's out of print now. I ordered it off Amazon, but they've stalled my order until February and knowing what "out of print" means, they'll put it off longer after that. So, anyone have one they're willing to part with?  :-/

I have two books to propose:


1) Miracles of Tsar' mortyrs ( Part 1)  ( Russian)
Because Part 1 has no  story'connection  with part 2
It could be regarded as separate editions

2) Russian family during the time of revolution
(Russian)
Letters of one family (Tolstoy-Voeikov)between  Leningrad, Simbirsk , Samara, Harbin in 1927-1929 years.
Maybe it would be intresting for somebody who learns
russian history or teachs it.

I am ready to send them by mail, if somebody want them.

Hi  ;

I am Major Jesse Carnes.
I have been working with books at a University Library for the past 18 years and if anyone is trying to find a RARE or out-of-print book on the Romanovs, please email me.   I have the URLS for rare and out-of-print vendors.   I also assume that most of you are WAY ahead of me, since I am a newbie on the Romanov discussion net.   Anyway, let me know if you run into difficulties finding a rare Romanov book.

By the way, in passing, I was looking for an original copy of the 1913 Tercentenary of the Romanovs.  HARD to find!   Also, there is a rare book on the Romanovs with scarce-to-find family fotos--written and published by a certain Prince (?) of Greece.   Only one copy was found and they wanted $700 + dollars.  Eeeek!!

Still---it's a crying shame that a book
that 4 book vendors currently [today 18 Jan 2006]  ALLEGE to sell for $18-$24 are sending me to either different books or to copies of that Romanov book but for an inflated price.   Brigands, blagards, and blighters!!   Grrrrrr!!

--jesse
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Maj. Jesse Cairns on January 18, 2006, 11:48:45 AM
Dear all ;

As of this writing, I now have gone through FIVE book vendors and--regarding
Nicholas and Alexandra : the Family Albums-- they have
ALL baited and switched me.  I am discouraged and can't
afford to buy a $19 book for $125-$2800 dollars.
This is a SIN!!    If I could have any foto-rich book on the
IF with the best fotos of their faces, THIS would be it.

I suppose everyone here already knows that the Russian govt, back in 1990 gave Prince Michael of Greece [author of the book] permission to pour through ALL 30 of the
leather-bound, imperial-seal embossed  foto albums of
the IF and he chose 300 of the best to make this book.
A bleedin' shame it is . . .  and I found--by the way--as
a matter of a TEST--that  the vendors DO have the book,
in the case of the more expensive  asked prices.  *sigh*
This book is obviously SINE QUA NON for anyone who wants primo fotos of the I.F.'s faces.  If I were going to
cast for a movie--say for a title like "The Kitchen Boy," I would refer primarily to this book.   Oh well . . .

--Jesse

Laura --

Prince Michael's book seems to be the "holy grail" of
Romanov books - picture-wise.  But like the rest of the
crowd, I've yet to see a copy priced under $100.  

Any images from this book would be so appreciated!
It seems that they are so rare and sought-after - -
you are such a sweetheart to offer to scan them.

I would love to see however many you would like to post -- knowing your schedule, I cannot imagine where you find the time!   But I'm sure that I am not alone in thanking you in advance for the chance to see some new (to us!) pictures of the IF.

Thank you all for discussing your books, sharing the scanning of your pictures, etc. It's thoroughly enjoyable. On another of the AP Threads, under green aliens, or something of that title, posters are sharing actual pictures of their library shelves. It's breath taking to see the variety of books everyone is reading.

I'd love to ask for more books, but I'm awaiting two books that two very gracious posters here on the AP Threads have offered to send me. Sure I'd love to have the many that are offered, but two are enough for now.

Your all wonderful in your sharing of these wonderful books. For people as myself, who can't get out so easily, for various reasons, your a wonderful blessing. Hugs to you all !

Regarding the monograph :  Nicholas and Alexandra : the

The hardest part was translating the German.  *whew*

If anyone one is interested in this book, write to me privately and I will give you the FAMOUS vendor's name, as i am not sure if the RULES of the Alex Palace permit me to namedrop the name of book vendors.

If there were one foto that I would want to put on my work computer as "wallpaper" it would be the one of Alexei in his STANDARDT hat, and pouring water out of a teapot . . . the frontispiece foto of N & A: the Family Albums.   By the way, what sort of pencils, or other medium did Anastasia use to colour fotos??

--Jesse
PS :  Just a bit off-topic,  I am a musician of multiple instruments, and because of my Romanov research, I am now interested in the Balalaika.   I find the tone fascinating and moving.   When I hear such things, I can almost imaging myself walking through their wool-carpeted rooms, being able to smell the "home" scent that the Imperial Family held at the Alex Palace  [every family has a "scent" you know].

    Hi, Janet, I don't have that book. I still have "Alexandra" by Erickson, and "Kronstadt 1921 "  About the sailor uprising in 1921. Maybe I could help you locate some thing east of the Rockies,or east of the Mississippi, or even east of the Hudson.   F.

Dear Joe:

I'd be happy to send you "The Lonely Empress" - and I
don't have the bio that you mentioned -- so that sounds great!

Please PM me once more with your address -- I'll mail it off to you right away.

Thanks again Joe!

If anyone's got a spare copy of either
1. Greg King's bio of Alexandra
2. the bio of Nicholas- 'The Last Tsar' - the author's name escapes me...the one who also wrote about Rasputin, Edward something or other
or
3. Peter Kurth's The Riddle of Anna Anderson

and won't mind mailing it to England, I'd be a very happy recipient of any of these.  My local library doesn't stock them and my impoverished state prevents me from purchasing them. :(

Seeing as my total of owned Romanov books stands at 2, I am sorry to not be able to offer anything of my own to send. :(  

However, if you want any English Literature textbooks, be my guest!!!

Rachel : I can let you have a paperback copy of Peter Kurth's 'Anastasia' when I get it back from a student who borrowed it a month or so ago. And I actually have two copies of the Radzinsky book and would be pleased to send one to a good home. No problem about mailing to England as that's where I am too! It's half-term this week, but I'll get the Kurth next week and send both together. Send a PM with details of where to send them if you'd like them.

Dear Felix:

I rec'd your PM and the book is on its way to you!   :)

The book you mentioned would be much appreciated as I haven't read that one yet!  Never  can have too many Romanov books I say!!!

On a sad note ( :'( :'() -- my earlier excitement about snagging the "Nicholas and Alexandra, TFA" turned into disappointment and anger.  After much translating back and forth between Amazon in Germany and the USA I finally ordered, and paid for the book and was VERY much looking forward to it!!!

Last weekend I rec'd the book (it was from "Better World Books" -- read, BEWARE OF) - it was a picture book entitled "The African Americans" -- now while I'm sure this is a nice book and someone is looking for it --it wasn't me and I wanted my Romanov book darn it!!

So after a week of e-mailing back and forth Amazon and Better World Books - the best I can do is report that they sold my copy to someone else accidentally, have no more copies in stock, refund my money and wish me
"good luck" in finding it and it was "bad luck" on my part to have had this mistake happen!   Grrrrrrrrrrr!! >:( >:(

I'm an easy-going person (no, really!!!), but you could see the smoke coming out of my ears!!  I just can't afford $100 for a book right now, so their price of about $35 US dollars seemed just made-to-order.  Oh well, back to the search - and on - and on!!

But on a brighter note:  I just received the "House of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha" and "Katia, Wife before God" from another used book seller on the internet - so lots of books to keep me busy!!!

This is a super thread - let's keep it going!!

I entirely sympathise Janet! I ordered a historical novel called 'Crown in Candlelight' on January 20th. I was worried when it hadn't arrived after a month, and after much emailing I was told that it must have been 'lost in the post' and they gave me a refund. I don't believe for a minute that it was lost in the post - they wouldn't have given me my money otherwise! I'd say it's more likely that they didn't have it at all - it's happened before that I've ordered something and then been told 'Oooh, sorry, but when we went to the shelf it turned out that it's not in stock'. Then why, WHY, is it advertised as 'in stock'???  >:( >:( Sorry guys! <end rant>

BTW, who is the author of "House of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha", please? Sorry, I know I'm off topic.  :-/

Nelly : I'm just back on the forum after an enforced absence owing to a computer failure (formerly Markov), and I just happened to see your appeal for a copy of 'Dearest Child : letters between Queen Victoria and the Princess Royal, 1858 -1861'.  I have a copy which you would be welcome to have. It's a 1965 reprint, with a nice dust-wrapper and clear plastic protective cover. I 'rescued' it many years ago when a very unenlightened librarian at the school where I taught at the time had placed it in a bin labelled 'to be pulped'! Can you believe that?!! It does have the remains of a few library labels, which have been roughly torn out, but other than that it's fine. The letters are entertaining, sad, amusing ~ but always interesting. I have always liked Roger Fulford's work : in this book he expresses his gratitude to another 'hero' of mine ~ David Duff ~ who I am glad to see features in another thread now. Apparently Duff arranged that many volumes of the letters should be returned from Hesse to England. Anyway, if you would like the book to complete your collection, you would be very welcome.

Well, there is one on Ebay, but it is over $50 with shipping.
 Alternately, you could buy the Amazon UK  one, have it sent to a UK address and then have it resent by them to you in the US. I do this all the time, except I just bring  the stuff back with me when I go over for my visits.

Go to your local library (or university library if you are a student) & ask them if they can make the book come for you from another library through the inter-library-loan. I do it here in France & used to do it also when I was studying in Great-Britain. I do not know in what country you live but this may probably be done as well. This is a good way of reading old / out-of-print books which cannot be found in bookstores anymore. All the libraries do not do it though - just ask them.

Thanks to everyone--I think I'll continue to look to purchase a copy of Darling Child.  When you have all of a series except for one, well, you just have to not give up.  I'm going to keep checking the various sites as well as our local huge non chain bookstore, Powells, on whose shelves I picked up three out of the four books I presently have.  If anyone runs across a copy in the meantime, do let me know!! ;) ;)

Well, there is one on Ebay, but it is over $50 with shipping.
 
I just visited ebay--this one is still there--I'm mulling over whether or not to go that way in my quest--thank you Robert!!

Sorry about that Nelly : I obviously got my 'Dearests' and 'Darlings' mixed up! Anyway, the book  has now been promised to our friend in Hawaii!

During my recent enforced period off the internet (how I missed it!!), I had a sort out and found I have spare copies of the following books if anyone is interested :

Memories of Russia 1916 - 1919, by Princess Paley : Royalty Digest Edition, 1996, hardback. only 150 were printed in this edition. (I was lucky enough to find an original 1924 edition ~ hence this one is now spare)

And I've got spare paperback copies of Massie's N & A, and also his 'Romanovs : The Final Chapter', but I expect everyone on the Forum has got them !

Anyway, all free to a good home : strictly no book dealers !!!

Courtesy of my local library sale - I picked up a duplicate copy of "Victoria's Daughters" by Jerrold M. Packard.

I already have this lovely paperback and so picked it up thinking that one of the AP members might like it ---
any takers?   :)

I really enjoyed this book and the copy is in very good shape.

Just let me know!

Oh, koloagirl, I would love to get this book!!!!! I am going to PM you!!!!!! :) :) :)

Eddieboy, have you even READ FOTR ? There are a lot more facts than "errors & misconceptions".
In any case, anyone who seriously wants to see what all the fuss is about SHOULD indeed not only read it, but have it on hand for reference. It is, after all, a published work that will be around a lot longer than the endless babble on the electronic forums.

I got my copy from Amazon UK but I have seen it on the shelves in my local book shops. Its not that expensive considering the size of the book and the information within and its seems to be easy to get hold of in my neck of the woods.
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Ra-Ra-Rasputin on April 12, 2006, 03:35:07 AM
I agree with the others- FOTR is widely available and not very expensive considering the length of the book.

It may be riddled with errors but it is still worth a read; I know I still use it as a source, but with my sceptical goggles on. ;)

I don't know where you live, Ortino, but in America the paperback version is available new for $12 from amazon, and used on amazon from $7.  I don't think that's very expensive at all, seeing as I paid £20 for mine when it first came out.

If you live in England, the paperback is available used for £7, and the hardback is available new from amazon.co.uk for just £13.  Not bad at all.

I know I've seen FOTR, both the paper and hard back versions, in local bookshops and even in WHSmith, and that's saying something, because WHSmith only seems to sell brightly coloured books for reading on the plane/train/bus.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Okay all --

In the good intention of cleaning out my very messy bookshelves I found 2 paperback books that I purchased at library sales in
the recent past -- I haven't read either one, and given how many books I have backlogged to read now -- I doubt that I will -- so
I am giving them up for anyone who would like them on the AP Forums.

The only thing is that I am afraid I need to ask if I can only have members living in the U.S. (or Canada) asking for these.  I am so sorry, and I don't mean to discriminate, but I'm a little cash poor right now and sending books overseas is a little pricey.  So, anywhere
in the U.S. or Canada is fine!   :)

The two books are: (paperbacks)

"Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Murder of Lord Darnley" by Alison Weir

"The Book of Eleanor, A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine" by Pamela Kaufman

Okay -- please PM me and the first ones get the goods!   :D

Would you believe it--by the time I got to bookfinder.com, both copies were GONE!  I never would have thought that QV/Vickie's letters from 1871 to 1878 would have been such a hot property!!  The Amazon.uk seller is one that does not ship to the USA :'(

Agneschan--how does one do the inter liabrary loan?  I'm beginning to think that is my only hope. . .

FINALLY--found a copy in good condition with dustcover through abebooks--$35.00 with no cost for shipping in the USA!!!!  It's shipping now, and with luck I now have the complete set of Roger Fulford's editing of the QV/Vickie correspondence!!  Hurray--maybe someday the unedited correspondence will come out, but for now this will do nicely.  Thank you all for your kind assistance in my search!!

I did some more cleaning out of my garage, getting ready to have a garage sale, and found:

1. A Distant Mirror:  The Calamitous 14th Century, by Barbara W. Tuchman, an absolute masterpiece of medieval history, I had to read it in college, wore that copy out, found this one, and recently found a hardback copy.  This copy is paperback and in good shape.

2. To my surprise, I'd forgotten it had been boxed away for years, I found an old but good hardback library copy of A Princess in Exile, by the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia.  

I also still have a very good paperback copy of The Romanovs: The Final Chapter, by Robert K. Massie.

I have been blessed with many good books and I would love to be able to share these with someone.

Aloha all! :D

I have a good condition paperback copy of "Georgiana; Duchess of Devonshire" by Amanda Foreman that I'd be willing to part with.

I usually just give them away, but instead I was wondering if you don't have another book to trade, can I have someone just send me a little
something -- and I do mean little...from where you live?  This is what I usually do when I pick up a book on this thread, send some little treat as a "Mahalo" (thank you) to the person sending it out.  It is always fascinating to get something from somewhere else in the world - and I live so far away from almost anything, that most things seem exotic to me! :D

So PM me if you would like to do this.

I wonder if anyone can help me. As some forum members know, I am working on a project examining the reliability and value of memoirs published in English of late Imperial Russia. Already I have compared (and contrasted!) the memoirs of over 70 authors. I urgently need to find a copy of Marfa Mouchanow's 'My Empress' (1918) ~ yes, I am aware her memoirs are fake, but that's exactly why I want to include it in a section looking at false memoirs and lies, which can be so harmful to later historians' work. Can anyone help by lending me a copy? I will of course pay shipping fees or any other expenses. Thanks in hope!

Everyone loves books -- even my little Ted when we were in Tahiti was busy studying his French dictionary -- you can never be without a book!!!

Anyone have anything up for grabs?  I'm going to look now!

Now my turn!   :D

I have a gently read paperback copy of "Freddy and Fredericka" by Mark Helprin.

I'll type the synopsis from the back: 

..an extrodinarily funny allegory about a most pecular Britich royal family, is immensely mocking of contemporary monarchy and yet deeply sympathetic to the individuals caught in its lonely absurdities.  Freddy, the Prince of Wales, is an overeducated, bumbling anachronism who is massacred daily in the British press.  Fredericka, his troublesome wife, is frivolous, empty-headed, and fond of wearing spectacular clothing with revealing necklines.  Because of the epic public relations disasters caused by these wayward heirs to the throne, they are sent, in a little-known ancient tradition, on a tour de force through a strange and barbarous land - in this case, America."

I was highly suspicious when I first started reading it, being a true Princess Diana "fan" - but it is very sympathetic to both the Prince and POW -- it is a lovely, witty read.

I'd be happy to send it on to whomever would like it -- please U.S. and Canada only - I'm sorry!

Yes, I'm afraid it is still "weather as usual" here -- it doesn't change much you know -- I think today is supposed to be in the low 80's, light winds, showers in the mountains -- that is pretty much our forecast most of the year!

I worked at our library's booksale last week and looked and looked for anything even "vaguely" royalty related -- came up with nothing!  Darn it!  Now I'll have to get at that cabinet and see what books I can get rid of to make room for more!

I want to thank Janet for The Empress of Farewells a biography of Empress Charlotte of Mexico by Prince Michael of Greece.  I had surgery recently and my recuperation was made very pleasant by the receipt of this book.

I devoured it as I have always been interested in the Mexican Empire and the whys of it.  Poor Max, but more importantly poor Charlotte.

This thread and the intentions behind it are indeed the best!

So far the only book I have a duplicate of is Nicholas and Alexandra - The Last Imperial Family of Tsarist Russia  by Villinbakhov and the Hermitage Museum et al.  It is a very large and very heavy paperback and has a lot of pictures of the family and their possessions and palaces.  I think it is more of an exhibition guide, but on a grand scale.

I finally had to make a data base of my history books so that I wouldn't buy in duplicate.  I am sure that my collection is small in compare to some, but it had become too big for me to remember just what I had and who wrote it.

Janet, thanks again.

Hey I just discovered this thread!!!  Actually I had seen this thread but it never dawned on me to look into it until now. 

What a gold mine!!!!!!

By-the-by, I have extra copies of two of the Grand Duchess Marie's autobiographys, "Education of a Princess," and "A Princess in Exile."  The "Education of a Princess" is the 1931 second edition but the "A Princess in Exile," is an autographed 1932 first editon.  Both books have very worn covers.  The spine of "Education" is taped and the spine of "Exile" is torn a bit at the top and the autographed page by the Grand Duchess is loose.  But other than that both books are sound.    Toodle pip.....Griff

I thought I'd just "bump up" this poor thread, which was languishing somewhere on the 3rd or 4th page!

I personally have always loved trading books back and forth and I'll tell you what I have right now to offer for a trade:

1.Freddy and Fredericka, a Novel - by Mark Helprin -- a novel in which the Prince and POW are thrown to their own devices in the "wilds" of America and they find a new meaning to life -- alternatively funny, touching and just a great read!!!

2.Frederick the Great: a Life in Deed and Letters - by Giles MadcDonough -- I thoroughly enjoyed this book which another kind member traded me -- I'd like to have someone else enjoy it now!

3.  The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell

4.  The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillippa Gregory

5.  Passionate Nomad: the life of Freya Stark by Jane Fletcher Geniesse

All of these books are paperback (some oversized) and all in excellent to good condition.

I would like to trade for any other royalty type or books at least in the same genre.

Please let me know if anyone would like to trade -- I can't wait -- it is always such fun!!!

House of Orleans by M. Cornyn (1936). It covers through about the 1500s. I had thought it was on the more recent Orleans family (Louis Philippe's when I ordered it online). It's a hardback in good condition, especially for it's age.

Anastasia: The Lost Princess by James Blair Lovell and Anastasia: The Riddle of Anna Anderson by Peter Kurth. Both hardback, without dust jackets. Slightly worn but in good shape for being packed away for a good while..

Larger Hardback (though thin) The Kings and Queens of England and Scotland by Plantagenet Somerset Fry. It's one of those combo photo/brief biographies kind of books.

For me, it would have to be Robert K Massie's 'Nicholas and Alexandra' if you want a good, detailed read of the story up to July 1918. Most people on this forum probably started with that book at some early stage of their interest. Then you could follow it up with same author's 'The Romanovs : The Final Chapter', which takes the story up to 1998 (the burial of the family) and looks at all the impostors. If you want a photo book, my personal vote would go to 'Nicholas and Alexandra' ~ The Family Albums, by Prince Michael of Greece. Sadly it's hard to find and expensive when you do find it! I have spare copies of both the Massie books if you'd like them : send me a PM with your details if you would like them.

Instead of responding to my posts, why not respond to your customer's concerns, Art? You can easily make things right, just refund them their money and it will be all over.  Why change the subject and concentrate on me, when you have all these angry people you need to answer to?

Because you are not involved in this and you are not going to dictate policy to the rest of us...perhaps if you had something else to do...as you yourself say you have plenty of time...you would spend so much time meddling in other people's business and causing trouble.

You do not know how many people order the book...you do not know how many already got it from the first box, you certainly ignore my correspondence with them...and I am not going to reveal it as it is none of your business. Ms Mabee has the option to obtain her money if she wants not to wait any longer. That is her choice and hers alone...not yours, one of your business.

As a matter of fact Ms Mabee would like her money back, so how about you send it to her? Ms Mabee is too nice to expose you like this, but even she was pushed to her limit. But I am not as nice, and I have no qualms exposing you... I am part of this forum and a lot of the members here are my friends, and I really hate to see my friends cheated. Especially by the likes of you. Ms Mabee is my friend and I like her very much, which makes this my business. Consider me her representative and also of the others whose money you have. So how about it, are you going to refund Ms Mabee and others or are you going to just continue this back and forth nonsense?

Rob, the problem is that members of this Forum who, in good faith, subscribed to Mr Beeche's 'publishing house', shelled out over $500 each in January 2007 - i.e. over a year ago, are failing to get any response from Mr Beeche.   If truth be told, they fear confrontation and reading these posts and the ones on the other thread, one can fully understand why.   HelenA is fearless and loyal and I LOATHE injustice (as well you know) - so what's our alternative?   

As a result, in extremis, they have been left with no alternative but to bring the subject into the public domain - the Alexander Palace Discussion Forum - in the hope of being reimbursed by their debtor.

Don't get me wrong, Rob, I feel terribly, terribly sorry for you and for Bob having to cope with this extremely unpleasant issue... and issue  which has been thrust upon you and which is of no fault of either your's or Bob's.  In fact I KNOW how upset both of you will be and I want everyone else who comes here to know that too.   

Both of you are victims of injustice - just like the people who too have trusted and are paying a high price.

Title: Re: Duplicate Books

OK.

Been trying NOT to get dragged into this, but seem to be forced. There is NO evidence so far that people are being cheated or "scammed".  So far, the one person who wanted a refund is getting one. To be honest, the length of time seems excessive to me, as Bob buys books from Russia regularly, and they never take nearly that long to arrive, nor is DHL exorbitantly priced.  THAT SAID, I don't know Art's business, or the communications to or from his customers either. Art doesn't pay for advertising, we have allowed him to announce publications here simply as a courtesy to interested users.  Some of our close friends have published through him with good experience in years past.

I simply CAN'T sit in judgment without further information. My attitude is that Art should gladly refund anyone's money who has waited over a year simply by the customer asking for a refund.  That is the professional thing to do.  Now, if someone wants their money back, and can't get it, thats a different kettle of fish...so far, nobody has said they have been refused a refund.

I think this is reasonable...

Kudos to Helen for making lemonade out of lemons for facilitating the acquisition of this wonderful and rare book, why not just rise above petty name calling and do the right thing?

I'd love to take this one off your hands, Felix. Also the Empress of Farewells it it hasn't been claimed. I would've pounced on The Romanov Legacy,The Palaces of St.Petersbug if dear Sarushka hadn't beaten me to it! (Darn job!  ;))

I have Inside the Russian Revolution by Rheta Childe Dorr. It was published in 1918 and is in very good shape except for a loose first page.The author was in Russia from May 1917 and it is her impressions. She visisted Grand Duchess Elizabeth and there's some info on her and the convent (which is why I purchased the book). It has a very female-centric focus.

Post by: Alixz on February 29, 2008, 09:54:23 PM
felix,

Please keep posting.  I just forget to check this thread as often as I should.  All of the books that you listed, I already had and The Empress of Farewells I received from Koloagirl last year through this wonderful resource.

I have sent out two books to others and I know that they have enjoyed them.

I rarely get duplicates myself, because no one in my family who would give me books will even try anymore and I have a great data base that keeps me informed about what I have so I won't buy duplicates (like I did in the past) myself.

I would, however, like to get Education of a Princess by that brat Maria Pavlovna.

But I just received a windfall of books from the library of a friend of my mother's who passed away and passed her books on to me.  I have so many lined up to read and so little time. Most of her books were not Romanov, but were interesting biographies of other well known people like Clementine Churchill and the DuPonts of Delaware and the Astors.

I still have Blood Relative courtesy of Phil Tomaselli and I have not even had time to look into it yet!

This is such a wonderful resource but I would like to ask one thing that has been on my mind since I first read this thread.  When I send out a book, I never ask for a refund of postage.  Is that the usual way?  I wouldn't want to receive a book and not reimburse the sender if that is the rule.

Would someone answer on the thread?
Thanks.

I don't think there's any hard and fast rule. Some folks swap books, so the postage is roughly even. A few people like Koloagirl will trade goodies from far-flung corners of the world (like Hawaii). Others will ask outright for postage when the book is put up for grabs, or specify how far they're willing to send it for free -- "Europe only" or "North America."

So you can just play it by ear. But in general, it never hurts to offer to ante up for postage if you're on the receiving end of a freebie.
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Laura Mabee on February 29, 2008, 10:31:39 PM
I totally agree with everyone.
I am very, very grateful to you Felix for starting this thread up. I have been so lucky to receive many kind books from AP members, and send some out as well.
Another thing that I have gained from this thread is good true friends. If it wasn't for this thread I might not have made contact with as many members of the AP, and I sure know that I am very lucky to have done so.

When the thread started, Felix sent me his duplicates for free, so I followed. I really think it's up to the person who is giving away their duplicates. I once saw a film called "Pay it forward", where if someone does something nice to you, you do something nice for three other people, and so on and so forth. I suppose I see this thread as a pay it forward thread, When I got books from someone, I then posted my duplicates and send them out. Mind you, this is just how I do it. There really is no rule set in stone.  :)

Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Alixz on March 02, 2008, 09:40:32 PM
Thanks for the info.

I feel as Laura does and have not asked for postage when I send out a book because I feel that it is "paying forward".

However, if anyone ever does want the postage to be reimbursed, please put that in your pm.  As I said, I would hate to not reimburse a sender if that is a condition for them.

Phil Tomaselli sent me Blood Relative  all the way from the UK to the US, but he had said before hand not to send any reimbursement for postage.

When I sent my first book out, the receiver asked again and again if I wanted her to repay the postage, but I told her no.  Sometimes the amount is not all that large in the grand scheme of things and I just love knowing that the books have a good home.
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: Arleen on March 03, 2008, 10:53:25 AM
Felix is a doll, he and I have even borrowed from each other and then returned them when we were finished reading them.  But I would say that would be frought with lots of dangers unless you know the person WELL! 

In the beginning I would send the postage back to the sender, I am very weird about obligations, but after a while it seemed to work better not to.....just reciprocate by sending them something in return sometime.

I have a fetish about getting a copy that was printed in the original publication year.  So I always have a hard time getting an inexpensive copy.

I did, however, get my copy for about $50 USD and I think I got it from a Danish bookseller.  It is hard cover, 1964 edition, with a reasonable dust jacket.

The one that was toughest to find was Olga Romanov - Russia's Last Grand Duchess by Patricia Phenix.  I had to get a 1999 paperback which is not in great shape, but at least I didn't pay a lot for it.  It is ex-library, but I don't think it was read much, so aside from being a little soft and brown around the edges, it is all right.  I don't remember what I paid, but I have seen it for as much a $200 USD.  And that is just crazy.

When querying on e-bay, do not just put in the title of the book.  Look under 'royalty'.  Last year I was looking for this particular book as well, and found the seller did not list it by the title.  I looked and found it was this very book and no one else was bidding on it and I was able to purchase it for $15.00.

Not that I'm aware of. The paperback reprint edition seems to command prices nearly as high as the hardcovers. My guess is that it's simply become too scarce to satisfy the demand.

I had a similar experience on BookFinder, though in this instance it was due to a typo. By hunting by author instead of title, I discovered a $40 copy of Prince Michael's book listed under "Nicholas and Alexander: The Family Albums" at a time when the majority were selling for upwards of $125.

Denise, The Family Albums by Prince Michael of Greece are many times for sale at ebay. The Bokhanov book I think you must be lucky someday. This book is one everyone want, but never gets. So I think that if you email: Van Hoogstraten in the Hague, you will be more lucky to have a second hand of this book, then waiting for ages someone put his/her copy for nothing on this thread.

Just "bumping" this thread up.

It tends to get lost and it is a great thread.

Denushka_89  There are a great many out of print book site stores on the Internet.  Just Google out of print books and you will find dozens of places to look for the books you want.  And the books don't even have to be out of print for these sites to have them!

eBay isn't the only place to get great values on books.

a better way to search is to use  www.addall.com  (and click on out of print) ... search for your book and addall searches through a myriad of dealers large and small ...

I'm not sure that anyone will actually want it after the all the criticism and adverse comments it has received here, but thanks to well-meaning and generous friends and relatives who know my interests, I have ended up with two copies of Carolly Erickson's 'The Tsarina's Daughter' (hardback, 2008). Remember it is a work of fiction, so not one for those who demand historical accuracy!!  Perhaps it will serve to boost this thread, which seems to have been in the doldrums recently. I await the rush......!!!  (svm)

I have a like new paperback copy of Robert K. Massie's "The Romanovs, The Final Chapter" that I would be happy to trade for another Romanov paperback (or otherwise) book - I also have the "Romanov Prophecy" that I'd be happy to "throw in" for gratis!

I do have a little library of Romanov books - but am always looking for new titles to add!  I'm also interested in British and French royalty if that helps!

And once again - mahalo Felix for this thread - I have made so many wonderful "trades" thru the years on this thread - thanks to you for originally starting it "back when" !!!

Janet R.

P.S. - I live in Hawai'i, which is part of the U.S. - so probably wouldn't be worth anyone's time outside of the U.S. or Canada to trade 'cause of the cost of shipping.

The way that the books are available depends on the person who is offering them.

Sometime they are just free and that means no charge for anything even shipping.

Sometimes there will be a charge for postage, but the book is free.

Sometimes, people want to swap, but that is hard unless someone has a book that someone else wants.

I have benefited from this thread.  I have received several books at no charge and I have sent out several others at no charge.  I haven't asked for postage yet.

Sometimes when I come across a box of books that no one else wants, I will go through it and take what I think this forum might like and then offer them on this thread.  For instance a woman my mother knew left a box of books in her apartment when she moved.  We checked and she said that she didn't want them, to just throw them out.  I got right on it and went through the box to find "Born To Rule" and a few other biographies that I knew I had but that someone here would want.  I posted them and they went very fast.

Never let a good free book go to waste.

We all appreciate your great generosity in passing along extra copies of Romanov books, but I have to ask :  what's the deal  with acquiring them in the first place? Do you have friends in high places at book  sales?, compromising photos of librarians running shelf cullings?  Just kidding but just wondering.

Hahahaha! Guilty as charged! : D

In all honesty though, I've just been really blessed. I have been blessed to know a lot of generous and kind people who understand my interest in growing my Romanov Book collection (book obsession?), and kindly contribute a volume or two here and there. Sometimes I receive a book as a gift, which I'll  already have, so I just stockpile my duplicates of and give them away on a rainy day. (and it is raining lately!) : P
I have been so lucky to receive such kindness from others, so I just like to pay it forward.

I can't pass up a good Romanov book at a bargain price. Just. Can't. Do. It. I would much rather trade/gift them to good homes than leave them lingering on a store shelf. I have three copies of a rare biography of Anne Sullivan for exactly the same reason. It's my version of an animal shelter, I guess.

a good home for the duplicate!

Me too!  If I find books at tag sales or library cleaning sales, I just can't leave them. (Sometimes libraries will sell hard covers for $1.00 US and paper backs for as little as $0.25 US.)  I get them for so little that I think it is worth spreading the knowledge around.

I have never charged for postage, as many others here don't either, and it gives me great satisfaction to know that these wonderful books will be appreciated.

I have some titles to offer, they are all in a very good state...first on the list is :

Grand Duchess Elizabeth of Russia New Martyr of the Communist Yoke   by Lubov Millar

It is the new 2009 edition which contains 181 b&w photographs. Maybe we could swap? if not then I'm selling it at a very good price.


I forgot to mention that this book has found a new home!!! :)

Good to see this thread flourishing again. I've got a spare hard-back copy of the colourful and informative catalogue which accompanied the exhibition 'Nicholas and Alexandra' at the Royal Museum of Scotland in 2005. Seven chapters in English, all by experts from Russia. Coloured picture on the cover of N & A's wedding ceremony. Loads of photos, mostly familiar, but very nice. Maybe someone would like it?

I agree with a previous post ~ I find it hard to resist a Romanov book if I see it on the shelf of a second-hand book shop, even though I may already have a copy! I hate to think of it 'unbought and unloved'. Perhaps that's why this house is overflowing with books. There will be more 'duplicates' from me on here in the weeks to come.....

It seems you were unsure of the publication. Check out our very own Alexander Book Finder for information on the book Anastasia's Album (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/books.html?sku=3). If you're interested, send me a PM!

What a pity that this thread has been idle for so long! We need to re-activate it! So here goes :

'Romanov Autumn' ~ Stories from the Last Century of Imperial Russia ~ by Charlotte Zeepvat. 1st prinrting, hardback (2000), as new with jacket. A collection of 25 stories, some familiar, many less so. Illustrated with b & w photos. See APTM Bookfinder for more details.

Will keep it for one week to give as many people as possible a chance to tell me why they would like to have it. Willing to send anywhere in the world!

I'd really like to have it and i'm willing to pay the shipping charges since i live on the other part of the ocean!!
I'd like to have it since it seems it's a very good R-ov book and it still misses in my collection; moreover, i always like to put my hand on every R-ov illustrated book: photos on a book are always better than those saved in a pc folder!
let me know. Thanks!
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: violetta on August 31, 2012, 09:07:25 AM
Why do I want to have it? Because I do a lot of historical research on the Romanovs and contribute my articles to a bimonthly magazine. But these studies are not devoted to the Romanovs as historical figures as I also concntrate on other accompanying issues e.g. gender issues, position of women in a particular period of time, education etc. It would be brilliant and helpful addition to my collection of sources. Needless to say that my attitude towards my heroes is rather emotional....
Title: Re: Duplicate Books
Post by: grandduchessella on August 31, 2012, 11:15:34 AM
I will say Romanov Autumn is a dream! I was fortunate enough to buy it previously before it became so hard to get.

It's not a typical illustrated Rosvall book. The pictures are the type you regularly see in biogrpahy in size--not the full or half page of an illustrated book. There are also portraits sketched by Charlotte Zeepvat herself which adorn the beginnings of the chapters.

So why would I like to have this book? I have heard nothing but praise for the Romanov Autumn and it interests me very much because I love learning more about the extended Romanov family, not just NAOTMAA. To take a peek into their private life, learn about the lesser known stories too. Who they were as a person as well as historical figures? How did they live? Quirky anecdotes, little details of their life. Also, I’ve been trying to get hold of this book for quite some time with my (unfortunately) extremely limited resources, but others have beaten me by being quicker than me or having more money.

Romanov Autumn would definitely find a loving home in my tender care. :)


Best regards,

Anna

I wish I had enough copies for everyone, but sadly I only have one, and it now has a new home. I do occasionally see it on my travels, and will certainly buy any copies I come across and let people know. Thank you to all those who responded, either on here or via e-mail. I hope another six months do not go by before this thread is active again!

I have a pair Jacques Ferrand photo albums of the imperial family and Noblesse Russe (7 volumes) that I no longer need. They are very heavy books which is the main consideration making me hesitate sending them overseas as the postage would be horrendous, but if there is anyone local interested please contact me. I would also rather these go to someone with a real interest who won't simply sell them.
