I found some of the listings today, bookseller asking about $4k (120,000 rubles). For my opinion, this is outrages, because books from 17th century can be purchase for about $2500. But as we all know - supply and demand set the price for books.
Here some more pictures from that print:

Dear Vladm,

What truly a treasure Feodorovsky Cathedral is. Thank you for sharing these pictures. They are beautiful. I am caught in time by the statement you have shared initially on this thread. It states, 'You can't avoid our past'. Thank goodness the past has not been erased, especially the Holy Cathedrals of All the Russia. The beauty alone of the iconistasis are breathtaking, and for me quite calming just looking at them. Thank you again, and again.

For those who can read and understand Russian, this is something I posted last year somewhere else, but I think it may also belong on this thread. This is a Russian language booklet which I picked up at the Feodorovsky Cathedral gift shop located next to the cathedral. I think this booklet is only available there, it covers the entire history of the cathedral.

Vladm,

Thank you so much for sharing the drafts with us, the viewers. They are beautiful. Thank you also for your far reaching thoughts, always to make sure those whom don't read Russian, can be a part of all that is shared here on these threads. It's quite clear by how, and with all you share, that this is always the main thought in your mind, that nobody be left out of the measureable sharings. Your pride in Russia, and of what it offers, is a testimony to how you impart your facts, and endless treasures on many of these threads. Again, thank you for all your efforts! I for one am most appreciative.

This text is on the site at:

http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/fsobor.html (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/fsobor.html)

It's an article on the church I commissioned in the early 90s. I have only posted the first three paragraphs because the text exceeds the limit that can be posted in the forum....

Bob

In 1881 after the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, Alexander III, his successor, issued a command to organize a special Emperor's Composite Infantry Regiment of the Household Troops to protect the Tsar's family. The term "composite" meant it was assembled from Guards regiments and Army military units from all parts of the Russian Empire. 20 years before, in 1861 the First and the Second Kuban Squadrons of the Household Troops of Cossacks and the Third and the Fourth Cossack Squadrons of Tersk had been united in a special military unit called "His Majesty's Personal Escort". This Escort followed the Emperor within and outside Russia and together with the composite regiment had the responsibility of guarding and protecting the Tsar's family. The Regiment and the Escort were quartered not far from the Egyptian Gate in Tsarskoe Selo.

After the creation of the new composite regiment the Commander of the Regiment and his assistants the alternative to either to build a regimental church near the barracks or to remain a part of the parish of Tsarskoe Selo nearest their barracks. During the reign of Nickolas II two new regimental churches in Tsarskoe Selo - St. Julian of His Majesty's Regiment and a church dedicated to the Romanov Tecentenary for the Fourth Infantry Regiment of the Emperor's family. The St.Julian church was built in 1899 to commemorate the wedding of Nickolas II and Alexandra. The cornerstone of the church of the Fourth Infantry Regiment was laid on May 2, 1913. This church continued to be built during the whole period of World War I as a memorial church to soldiers who perished during the war. The names of all of these men were engraved on the walls of the church. Nowadays there is a electric transformer box in place of the church which was destroyed during the Soviet period.

Meanwhile, the Composite Infantry Regiment of the Household Troops and His Majesty's Personal Escort also applied for permission and financial support to build their own church based on the fact and argued the need based on the fact that all other regiments had their own churches while they did not. Their requests were not granted until the winter of 1908. The Tsar himself chose the place for the construction of the church which was a big clearing near the park not far from the Alexander Palace. Aleksandra Fyodorovna requested a temporary church be established while construction progressed. It was established in the nearby house of the training batallion of the Emperor's Composite Infantry Regiment. In January 1909 an travelling camp ikonostasis of the Preobrazhensky Regiment of the Household Troops of the First Infantry Division of Guards was brought and installed in the temporary chapel. Captain Loman of Pavlovsky Regiment of the Household Troops was in charge of the further arrangements and interior decoration of the temporary church. On February 6, 1909 the first service took place and on April 25th it was visited by Tsar Nickolas.....

Unfortunately I don't have a scanner, this was done with a digital camera. I will see what I can do to make the text larger and more readable.

Initial inspiration for new Cathedral, Nicholas got from the icon Fyodorovskaya Mother of God.
Known story of the icon begins from 1164 at the church St Theodore Stratilat. Russians always had a hard time pronouncing foreign names like Theodore, and icon, become Fyodorovskaya.
Later 1239 icon was moved to Kostroma, and acquired alias - Kostromskaya.
In front of the icon, 17-years-old Michael Romanoff agreed to the throne, and this icon become guardian angel for the Romanoff’s family.
Icon was stored at the Monastery of St. Hypatius. 1910 by Imperial request was made copy for Fyodorovsky Cathedrial.
