I have just purchased three books on The Yusupoff Family; The Yusupoff Palace Restoration , The Yusupoff Family, and Prince Felix Yusupoff.  Never heard of these books until now.  Will post any new pictures that haven't been posted before.  You are right about more photos and information popping up .

Good for you!!! I was tempted to bid on them but I couldn't. Please do post any rare pictures that have not been posted before. :)

Yes, I was also glad  that I was highest bidder, but not as much as the 405... price tag on previous auction item.  The third book I got from Amazon.com, never heard of the author though.  His name is Christopher Dobson.  Have you heard of him?

Still waiting for book on Felix.  Will let you know when I receive item.  It was the only book I ordered from amazon.  Other two were from ebay auctions.  Have a great weekend

Just received books, somewhat of a let down... Does anyone on this site living in The United States of America speak Russian?  If you do, please let me know; I have a great gift for you.
((((But, you must translate for us!!!!!!!!)))

There are several Russian speakers on this site. I'm sure you'll find someone who can help. Even if the book is in Russian, can you please still show us the pics? How awful, though, that they didn't inform you they were in Russian before you spent so much money.

That's okay.  Still waiting for the third book, I think that it's in English text.  As for the pictures, most are already on site.  Will scan the few that are not. 

Love this site, putting a trip together for 2008, sailing the Baltic with stops in St. Petersburg and flight to Moscow.  Friends of mine did this 2 years ago.

Looking forward to this trip

If you would like,  I can send you the book.  If you can scan and give information in English.  The book is 125 pages long.  I will have my daughter scan the cover when she is finished with her homework.  Probably in several hours
Thanks

Does anyone know whether previously published photos of the Yusupovs such as those that appear in current books or in, for example. Ferrand's Yusupov book are still protected by copyright?  Or are they by this time in public domain?
