Ahhhhhhhh!  I just read the last two posts.  You did get good deals indeed!  You are luckier than I.

After a few days of some pretty heavy rain we are sunny again in the 70's and possibly 80's for the start of the week.  I hate to see the cool weather leaving.  Let's hope for a mild summer.  Central California can be a scorcher in the summer. 

I found two hard cover copies of Education of a Princess sorting books for my Friends of the Library group and got one for free just for sorting that day.  I had the paperback version but couldn't pass the old hard copy.  I also got lucky and found Imperial Splendour, Palaces & Monasteries from Prince George Galitzine and only gave $8.00 for it.  I have seen it on Amazon for $100.00+.  It is a gorgeous book!  I purchased The Romanov Legacy by Zoia Belyakova for $125.00 and paid about the same for The Jewel Album.  It seems that I got some good deals now.

What a fete to have built this website out of a few dreams and have it become such a respected collection of historical information.  By visiting here I for one have been very motivated to research and learn more.

Congratulations to all of the founders.

Hi Alixz, 

I just ordered my copy last week from Amazon UK for about $32.00 with shipping and it has shipped already.  Hopefully you can get your ebay problem resolved and find a copy easily too.  Good luck to you.

Hello everyone,

I have been visiting the forum for several years but just decided to register and become a member.  I have enjoyed very much the wonderful photos that some of the members have shared and have also found a wealth of information in the books topic.  I was unaware of so many of the older books and have been collecting quite a few of them.  I am a little uncertain about posting since this is the first time I have been on a forum so please be gentle if I make a mistake.
