Hi GDNastya,

Yes I do own a copy. It is part of a series written by Fedorchenko. Why do you ask?

This book provides brief biographies of the members of the Imperial Court. It also offers a brief description of Imperial Orders, Russian Court definitions, and also includes a section listing those who served in the different Imperial Courts in January 1914.

This is a reference guide for the specialist.

Does the volume contain any illustrations (photos, watercolours, portraits, etc.) of the Imperial Court ?
Post a table of contents.

Yes it does. In the central portion of the book there are color images. Some are portraits of sovereigns, others depict Court attire and paintings of the key functional rooms in the Winter Palace. The remainder of the book provides extensive b/w photographs or drawings of key personalities.

Since it is a reference book providing biographies using over 500 pages, and an introduction, I believe I have given you more than sufficient information for you to make up your mind whether this publication is suitable for your needs.
