That is a good idea Tim! English, French and Russian.

Robert, I congratulate you.  You are very fortunate  because weeks ago I asked a Moscow friend to get me a copy and they reported it was sold out in two days with no plans to publish more........In fact it's interesting what they said:

As for the Romanov exhibit I was three times there. First time I couldn't come in because one should have a passport to do this. It was hold in a very special place and a policeman put down the name and ID of everybody entered. The cataloges were sold in the first two days. I came there again yesterday because I tried to learn anything about republishing of a catalog. I hoped for this because there were a lot of other people who asked for a catalog as well. But they told me it would be never publish again unfortunately. I asked if I can find it in electronic way and they said some materials were uploaded by people in Internet. That's all I can say. I did my best.


Earlier, on the other thread discussing this exhibit, I had posted the information on how to order the catalog on line, but I see that the publisher states that it is out of stock now there too.

However, it might be a good idea to check back from time to time to see if it has been reprinted, even after the exhibit closes. So here is that information again:

Re: Investigators: Who Were They & Their Findings

Speaking of catalogues, one in Russian can be purchased for this exhibition too.

http://www.indrik.ru/2012/gibel-semi-imperatora-nikolaya-ii-sledstvie-dlinoyu-v-vek

It's 1,000 Roubles, which is approx. $30.

I have no idea what the postage might be from Russia, but the payment page has links and details.

A friend in Moscow was kind enough to send me a copy. It is 175 pages, with lots of photos and details.

sigh ...yes from what I could see on Paul Gilbert's site , it all looked amazing. It's hard to believe they would do all that work for so short an exhibit...but it 's great it was put together at all.

Are any of the photos in the catalogue rare or unusual? Maybe someone who has the catalogue could post them?

There are many photos in The catalogue
It's 175 pages of photos of documents,letters, bones,telegrams....you name it,
I saw the exhibition and it was really amazing.
Even not reading Russian well ,I got by somehow.
It's not possible to post all the pictures from it here.just to many,
Hope this helps
By the way Columbia university has a small exhibition going on right now ,with few interesting pieces(photo albums ,personal objects,documents ) ,if I am not mistaking they have a copy of the draft of Nicholas II abdication
It's free to visit

That sounds interesting (the columbia uni exhibit)! I hope someone from the forum gets a chance to go to that small one?

I wish they did more exhibits like that here in the UK...

newfan & Jen,

Me, Rodney and Petr from the AP actually did attend this conference and exhibit a few weeks ago. I posted a long and detailed summary on it as well if you'd like to take a look. It's under the "400th Anniversary of the Romanovs" thread.

See here: http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=17486.msg518706#msg518706

Thank you for the link! Sounds like it was very interesting indeed. Particulary the stuff about the Romanovs and the Arts (i.e. the Ballet)!

You would have enjoyed learning more about that for sure Jen. Really the artistic stuff was the most heavily covered. I thought it was a decent to pretty good event overall. Worth the trip up to NYC certainly (I live just outside of Philly). Can't say I was blown away, but then I didn't expect to be.

I'm sure I would have. I do love Russian Ballet!

Wish I could have gone. Sounds like the perfect trip for any Romanov fan!
