Where do you find these wonderful candid shots?  I have a hard enough time finding their formal photos, never mind!

I was very, very, very excited to read about EuroHistory's upcoming book The Nassaus of Luxembourg, which will discuss the lives of the daughters of Grand Duke Wilhelm of Luxembourg!  I have not seen it mentioned on the Forum thus far, so... according to the dust jacket, "The authors best described their goal when they said "This book's concept began with our frustration over the lack of English language sorces available on the six beautiful Nassau sisters of Luxembourg."

I'm not 100 percent sure, but obviously, Arturo would be able to answer that.  I hope it will be out soon because I'm dying to read it!

Oh my, how I would love to read this! I wished I could have included them in my fiction novel but alas such little information didn't make for a story.

I just ordered my copy on Amazon!  SO excited!  I will let you all know how it is.

Duchess Hydrangea, I would love to hear about your novel; send me a PM sometime :)

Hey everybody,

I received my copy of The Nassaus of Luxembourg earlier this week, and I finished it in two and a half hours!  It's full of interesting information on the princesses, as well as the descendants of Charlotte and Antonia.  Also, it begins with the life of sisters' grandfather, Grand Duke Adolph, and it then discusses their parents, Grand Duke William and Grand Duchess Maria Anna.  Best of all, it's filled with beautiful photos, many of which were brand new to me; I wish I had a scanner so I could share them with you guys.  I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the six sisters and their extended family.

Oh, why does it have to be so expensive?

I hear you--I spent more on it than I would have liked, but the photos alone make me think it was well worth the price.  For instance, I love Marie-Adelheid, and it has two beautiful formal photographs of her, neither of which I had ever seen before, so I was very happy with that :)

Thanks Dru...the Pollock sisters did a phenomenal job with writing this book!

The Nassaus of Luxembourg http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0985460350# has 240 pages and 405 images, quite a few full page images. If is printed in glossy paper, high quality and pristine clarity.

We are not a large publisher. Hence, or print runs are much smaller than the big publishers. St Martins can print 50,000 copies. We cannot. We supply a demand for a niche market. So, the price of our books reflects that.

Look...when I first bought my copy of Massie and Finestone's The Last Courts of Europe in 1980, I paid $33+ dollars. That amount today is hovering around $70 in purchasing power.

Our books are either $43.95 or $48.95. Comparatively, they are still a great bargain when you keep the example i provided in mind.

On top of that, we print books that NO other publisher will bet a penny on getting to print. We take a huge risk with each one of our books...but we do it because we not only believe in the royalty market, but we also are steadfast about the fact that we are bringing more royal families and their history to an increasing number of clients.

I am convinced that what we are doing is contributing highly to the study of European royalty. The fact that we have been in business for nearly 20 years and are stronger today than we have ever been, confirms my belief.

Eurohistory is set to produce six, or more, books per year...I know we can do it and am convinced that our clients appreciate what we do.

Best wishes and thanks for your support!

Of course I understand, Arturo; you folks do wonderful work, and I'm happy to give you my business.  I only meant that a book like that is a fairly big purchase for me, but again, it was definitely worth it, since I've been waiting years for an English-language biography of Marie-Adelheid and her sisters.

Eurohistory,

I am very sorry if I offended you with my comment.  I am very, very excited about this book and can't wait to get it!  Definitely worth the value put on it, no question.  I plan on ordering it as soon as I am able.  I appreciate so much that your company is willing to publish books that don't appeal to the largest audience.  I understand how much research went into finding and translating the information.

Again, very sorry for any offense.
