Les Romanovs by Françoise Perraud
« on: December 04, 2008, 02:03:17 PM »
Just by chance, I stumbled upon a French photo album of the Romanovs by Françoise Perraud.  I am wondering if anyone has seen this book and recommends it?  I have got The Cameras of the Tsar and seen some older photo album books on the Romanovs and so I am wondering if there are rare photos in this new book?

I entered Les Romanov into the APTM Book Finder a few weeks ago, but I haven't seen a copy first hand. The info I've posted there is from the publisher.

Yes I saw your information there!  Seems like I may have to take a gamble with the book!  The good thing is the book is not too expensive...

Francoise Perraud also has a few other royal album books such as Les Hapsburgs & Les Petits Princes.

I have a copy and really enjoyed looking through it.  It was very nicely put together.

Does it have pics of just NAOTMAA or the entire extended family ?

I had a chance to look through Les Romanovs this week, and though I don't speak French I was quite pleased with it. It's an attractive paperback with good quality photos printed on glossy paper. Virtually all the images of NAOTMAA were familiar to me, but there are also many photos of the extended family. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison with Camera and the Tsars yet to see how many photos the two books have in common, but overall the format and focus of the two books are very similar. In fact, I would describe Les Romanov as a French sister volume to Camera and the Tsars. Since I've centered my photo-collecting almost exclusively around NAOTMAA, I can't say for certain if the images of the extended family in Les Romanov are rare; for what it's worth, many of them were new to me.
