Oh, I think you can't. There is no that book in Russian web-shops ..as well as in some local stores. Most of the books on the Yusupovs can be found in the Yusupov's palace shop. :(

 :( :( :( I will find a way to get my greedy hands on those books. Is it just me, or does it seem like info/pictures on the Youssoupov's are just starting to come out all of sudden?

I think I have one of those books from the palace from when I was there a few years ago. I don't think they mail them overseas...

Hopefully the weather will get better soon and you'll be able to go. It's more complicated in my case since I will need to save a lot in order to make a trip to Russia. Crossing my fingers and hoping for a trip next year. When I do get there, watch out cause I'm going into every gift shop I see!

Felix's memoirs
Ferrand's book
this one for 400$
the one about Arkh

The man who killed Rusp
The one I have from Arkh from which I posted letters

I wish I had it too!! I recently emailed Ferrand so see if by any chance he had another copy laying around but no, he has none.

The closest I have come to finding it, was a locating a copy at the Los Angelos Library, ( which is still eight hours away from me!) but no ones seems to have it for sale, anywhere! :(

The book is suppose to have several rare pictures, but then again a lot of new never before pictures have been popping up here and there around the web. I have never seen the book, but I believe Brian has...he may know more of what it actually contains.

A few years back the book was being sold for about $80-100 dollars however now that it's actually out of print and super hard to find, I wouldn't be suprised if he was double that price.
