I actually have the copy of this photograph.  It is not a postcard but an actual file photo taken when The Youssoupoffs won the law suit againist MGM.  The magazine that had it and published it was Le Journal, the photo is also copyrighted.  That is what is stamped on the back.

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

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

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!!!!!!!!)))

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?

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 .

I don't think that Felix is the gentleman in the Crimea  picture.  Face stucture is all wrong, especially nose and chin.  What do you think?

     Like I said in earlier post, book was published in 1927.  It was translated from the Russian by Oswald Rayner, M. A. Barrister-At-Law.  The complete title is, " Rasputin, His Malignant Influnce and his Assassination.
    The book is somewhat formal in it's execution, not a lot of Felix in the writing.  Maybe the translator lost the personnal element from the french to English.  Who knows, will let you know more when finished.  There are some areas that are the same as Lost Splendor.
    One chapter gives quite a vivid description on the discovery of Rasputin in the river and the following autopsy.

Cheers!

Here is a scan of the obituary I found in a book recently purchased in Canada.  The Name of the Book is Rasputin, by, Prince Youssoupoff.  Book was first published in 1927 and later, 1934.

Glad you liked the picture.  I purchased a book in Canada, enclosed was a small obituary of Felix and a picture of him looking very old.  I will try to scan the picture in. My talents do not extend to computer skills.  Give a couple of hours and I should have it on.

I thought you would enjoy this picture I found of Felix.  I have never seen this one before.
