Yes, this book is excellent. I haven't got it either unfortunately, and have been searching for it ever since. I had a look at it at the local library though.

In another forum they also said this book was available at the above-mentioned bookshop. But someone who went there to have a look could not find it there.

So I am at least not the only one who hasn´t got that book. Here is an interesting link about a possible reprinting of the book, where one can premark a copy. As soon as there are 30 potential buyers who have premarked a copy, there will be a reprinting. :) The link: http://booksagain.selfip.biz/FMPro?-db=atitle.fp5&-format=battleeu.htm&-lay=cgi&-op=eq&banr=11410310&-find=

Thanks for the link.

You are welcome. I hope the news about this possibility will spread, so that there may be a reprinting... :)

Gabriele Praschl-Bichler, Das Familienalbum von Kaiser Franz-Joseph und  Elisabeth (out of print)

I have been desperate to get this book for the past 2 years now but it seems impossible to find even a used copy ! There was one available a few months ago on amazon but the seller only shipped to Germany and so I had to let it go - drove me mad ! I wish the book would be reprinted with so many of us obviously dying to find it.

There are 16 copies of this book available on Bookfinders.com. Surely some of them ship outside of Germany. [various prices]

I have just checked bookfinder and could not find any copies of Das Familienalbum von Kaiser Franz Josef u. Kaiserin Elisabeth or I must be turning blind. Maybe you meant Das Familienalbum von Kaiser Karl u. Kaiserin Zita by the same author ? a gorgeous photobook that I do recommend, easy to find and usually at reasonable prices. It makes me even more eager to get the one on Franz Josef & Elisabeth ...

Yes, agneschen, my mistake there. However, I ckecked  under "German" books and was really surprised at how many books this person /s has put out about the Habsburgs! Order a couple  myself. I will keep looking for the Kaiser Franz Jsef for you.

I had asked Art about the FJ one and it's apparently very hard to get. He carries the Karl & Zita one and likes it better, actually. I guess it depends on exactly what photo subjects you are looking for which one might be better.

I emailed Ueberreuter (they published the book in 1995) and they told me that they are not planing a reprint. But there is a chance of a reprint here:http://booksagain.selfip.biz/FMPro?-db=atitle.fp5&-format=battleeu.htm&-lay=cgi&-op=eq&banr=11410310&-find=

I'd like to add some more books:

Kaiserin Elisabeth in 200 Bildern by Gertrude Aretz (hard to find ans usually quite expensive)
Historische Photographien aus den Aben des Kaiserbruders Ludwig Victor by Gabriele Praschl-Bichler
Familienporträts der Habsburger by Ilsebill Barta
Kronprinz Rudolf 1858-1889 by Helfried Seemann and Christian Lunzer NEW !!!

I bought Das Familienalbum von Kaiser Franz Joseph und Elisabeth in a normal bookshop some years ago. In my opinion you can find most of the pictures, which are shown in this book, also in other books about the Habsburgs and Wittelsbachs. Gabriele Praschl-Bichler used a lot of them in her other books. So don't be too angry.

I saw this book at Hugendubel in Munich and I have to say it´s rather thin (about 60 pages) and not very cheap (22 Euro). And the pictures aren´t that special, IMO. Do you like this book Marie?

My dear, dear Linnea ... glad to see you ...  ;D

The book has 72 (!) pages.  ;)  I saw it on amazon, but I don't think that I will order it. You won't either, right?  8)

In the Van Der Kiste biography of Francis Joseph which I'm currently reading their is a wonderful photo of the Emperor in some wonderful medieval looking robes. The notes on the photo say this is the Emperor in the robes of the Order of the Golden Fleece. I'm about halfway through the book and so far the Order of the Golden Fleece hasn't been mentioned. Does anyone know what it is?
