Title: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Faina on April 29, 2007, 05:18:45 PM
Dear All,
a mysterious book wanders through this Forum: Jacques Ferrand "Les Youssoupoff". Does anyone know were to get that book? Is there a way to find some abridgements on the net?
Best wishes,
Faina

I've heard the book is only in French and is full of rare photos.

The book is rare and extremly hard to find. I've been hunting it down for several months now and no one seems to have it.  :-\ :-\
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: gugussey on May 01, 2007, 07:50:56 PM
Yes, it's in French.  Title :  Les Princes Youssoupoff  and Les Contes Soumarkoff-Elston with a foreword by Pr Michel Romanv,  Paris 1991.  I believe it was self-published; therefore, a limited number of copies.  Many of the photos are Collection of Mme Xenia Sfyris. It is a good book to have but it also contains several factual errors.  This is true of any history.  I don't know where it can be obtained now.

I had never even heard of this book until I came up an auction on ebay for it. At that time the bid for it was around 45.oo and I thought about bidding on it, however once the price jumped, I realized I could not afford it.

Has anyone ever heard of this book? Is it a limited released book? Or is it sold at the gift shop at the palace? It had some nice pictures in it and I'm really interested in buying it, if I can find it...

I hope this book becomes more widely available.  It's over $200 on ebay already.

What a fabulous book! And what a shame that at this point it is so expensive.
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Svetabel on October 01, 2007, 02:27:21 PM
I have a Russian copy of that book and can say the edition is really wonderful and interesting reading. That's about everyday life in the Yusupov palaces...Very informative.

The book is very good but 200$ is too much, and even 45 $ is not a real reasonable price. Too much. Sometimes I just can't understand people who are ready to buy with such overprice.

I think the problem is that the book is not avaliable around the corner in bookstores so people use it as an excuse to make as much profit from it as possible. I must admit I would have paid $45 but $200? No way.  It does seem very intresting and I really do want to get my hands on it :(

Looks like a fascinating book.$US200,about $290 in my currrency.So expensive but so tempting.
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: ashanti01 on October 05, 2007, 02:52:42 AM
Ok, now it's a crime!!! As of 12:43am October 5th the bidding is at $405!!!! That is a crime!!! I believe Svetabel said that the book priced at $45 is too much, so this is just plain wrong. I wish I could order the book from Russia and pay whatever the price is for the book :(
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: ashanti01 on October 05, 2007, 03:03:22 AM
OK, so hopefully someone can tell more about this.

(http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a388/ashanti01/vv_018.jpg)


Well from what I read on ebay it's only about 30 some pages long and again it looks very intresting but I can't help but think that it's overpriced maybe? The starting bid is 34.00, but I must admit that I may be tempted enough to bid. Does anyone have any more information on it? What is it about? Is it worth getting?


Then there was also this book.

(http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a388/ashanti01/vv_080.jpg)

I think I may have heard of it before? Is it avaliable at the gift shop at the palace? or am I mistaken?

Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Svetabel on October 05, 2007, 03:36:04 AM
OMG!!! :o 405 $...some people are really crazy. I am a collector of rare books too, but I never buy such a book (wonderful I know but for example the famous edition of the 1903 ball can be found at 400 $ - and that is much more gorgeous edition) with such overcharge.
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Svetabel on October 05, 2007, 03:48:06 AM
I have the first book on Felix and Irina, actually I had posted pictures from it. Really contains some rare photos, and this time (after 405$ on Daily Life of the Yusupovs, OMG) I can repeat that the price is high. In fact the book is thin in soft cover and here in Russia is for 6 $. In case with other countries plus postage.
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: ashanti01 on October 05, 2007, 12:18:15 PM
$6????!!! Do you know if I can order this book online somewhere Svetabel?
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Svetabel on October 05, 2007, 12:33:59 PM
Oh, I think you can't. There is no that book in Russian web-shops ..as well as in some local stores. Most of the books on the Yusupovs can be found in the Yusupov's palace shop. :(

Hopefully the weather will get better soon and you'll be able to go. It's more complicated in my case since I will need to save a lot in order to make a trip to Russia. Crossing my fingers and hoping for a trip next year. When I do get there, watch out cause I'm going into every gift shop I see!

hm yeah expensive...but its a gift edition *or how is it called* so it's an avarage price for books like this one. Im curious where I can find it in Moscow...
and do you know other books connected with Youssupovs?
ok, there are:
Felix's memoirs
Ferrand's book
this one for 400$

Post by: ashanti01 on October 24, 2007, 03:07:19 PM
I wish I had it too!! I recently emailed Ferrand so see if by any chance he had another copy laying around but no, he has none.

The closest I have come to finding it, was a locating a copy at the Los Angelos Library, ( which is still eight hours away from me!) but no ones seems to have it for sale, anywhere! :(
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Taksa on November 02, 2007, 05:12:22 PM
what a strange book? why it is so difficult to find? how many copies are there in the world, anybody know? people say it is veeery expensive. and...does anybody know are there still a lot of  photos that are only in this book we havent seen yet?
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: ashanti01 on November 03, 2007, 03:36:57 AM
The book is suppose to have several rare pictures, but then again a lot of new never before pictures have been popping up here and there around the web. I have never seen the book, but I believe Brian has...he may know more of what it actually contains.

A few years back the book was being sold for about $80-100 dollars however now that it's actually out of print and super hard to find, I wouldn't be suprised if he was double that price.

Yes, I was also glad  that I was highest bidder, but not as much as the 405... price tag on previous auction item.  The third book I got from Amazon.com, never heard of the author though.  His name is Christopher Dobson.  Have you heard of him?

There are several Russian speakers on this site. I'm sure you'll find someone who can help. Even if the book is in Russian, can you please still show us the pics? How awful, though, that they didn't inform you they were in Russian before you spent so much money.
Title: Re: Books on the Yusupovs
Post by: Brian_Joseph on November 17, 2007, 12:27:54 AM
That's okay.  Still waiting for the third book, I think that it's in English text.  As for the pictures, most are already on site.  Will scan the few that are not. 

Love this site, putting a trip together for 2008, sailing the Baltic with stops in St. Petersburg and flight to Moscow.  Friends of mine did this 2 years ago.

Looking forward to this trip

I bought this book in English during my visit to St. Petersburg. As far as I know, it is sold only in the Palace. I really don't remember the price anymore, but it couldn't have been more than 500 roubles. Probably it was less!
As it was said, it is informative. If you aren't a really big fan of this family, you will be probably bored. There are almost no photos of the family. You read information about the heating system, toilets, cooking... If you are really interested in some of these topics, I can send you some info from the book.

I was in Paris last week and I saw some Ferrand's books in one of the bookshops. There were books on Musin-Puskin, Vorontsov or Orlov..I don't remember well but the thing is that there were books on some particular noble russian families. Also there were books-albums with a looot of pictures of different princes and dutchessses and other noblemen. I saw the Yussupov family as well, but the pictures were quite banal. These albums were published (though the date was printed on the bottom of the cover) 1993 and even 1987!!! does it mean that it is rather possible to find the book we all dream of? or is the one on the yuyssupovs the rarest?

I think several of Ferrand's books have become rare at this point.  'Les Youssoupoff's' is a very difficult book to find. I think I saw it come up on ebay a year or two ago and it was sold for over $300.00.. If you find it and can afford it I suggest getting it. It's really one of those books any Youssoupoff lover would treasure.

Although the Youssoupoff threads have hundreds of photos, there more waiting to be discovered. I can still remember when there was only a handful of pictures avaliable. The forum has come a long way over the years. :)

I haven't seen the book forever but I'm certain there are several photographs that have not been posted.

Dear all!

I have to apologize for being slow in promoting my book - documental biography of prince Felix Youssoupoff- published in Russia in 2003. After all these years of the search of publisher I can only regret that English speaking audience still has no access to the unique archive documents published in my research.

I know this gap has been partly filled by some pictures several times presented in this forum without any reference to my book, however now I am happy to let you all know that the short outline and many unpublished before pictures are available on my newly created site both in Russian and English (some things are still to be improved) on

www.krasnykh.com or www.krasnykh.com/eng

Please note that if you copy anything to other publication reference to the book is a must. (for the respect of work which has been done!)

I am happy to answer all your questions in Russian, English or French.

Best regards,

Elizabeth Krasnykh

As far as the yusupov book, I've tried to stay clear of ebay book on the yusupovs. I think they are grossly overpriced as well as some of Ferrand books. I think there is currently two of his books selling online for about $250-$300 and I'm sure I could find it for less than $100.00.

Are there any new pictures/information in the book? Thanks

There are no new pictures in History of the Yusupovs and I know, those books are definitely over priced.  Gilberts royal books is selling a Ferrand book, I saw that.  haha, I was trying to think if I have a favorite book in my collection and I like them all!  I am super glad that I get to borrow three Ferrand from Umass's library!!

The one Ferrand book I've been hunting down is Les Princes Youssoupoff which I can't find anywhere. I have a old very badly damaged copy that is missing pages   :-[  but I would love to get a new copy with all of the pages impact.

The picture can be found in Jacques Ferrand's "les princes Youssoupoff'cited as from the collection of Xenia Sfyris. I don't know if the Yusupov archives have their own copy but I have seen the image in a few Russian books.

I bought  Ferrand's book on the Yusupovs (along with some other books on the Romanovs, etc.---all in French) from the Paris bookstore Cagliani on the Rue de Rivoli ---this was some 10 years ago and I am not sure I have the bookstore's name spelled exactly right .

oh, pretty much...300$..
and are there still any photos ithat haven't been posted here, at the forum? because it seems to me that every photo that exists has been already posted here :)


Although the Youssoupoff threads have hundreds of photos, there more waiting to be discovered. I can still remember when there was only a handful of pictures avaliable. The forum has come a long way over the years. :)


you sure got that right!!

I had never even heard of this book until I came up an auction on ebay for it. At that time the bid for it was around 45.oo and I thought about bidding on it, however once the price jumped, I realized I could not afford it.

Has anyone ever heard of this book? Is it a limited released book? Or is it sold at the gift shop at the palace? It had some nice pictures in it and I'm really interested in buying it, if I can find it...
