Thank you for the link
I saw the exhibition last week
Small but interesting

There are many photos in The catalogue
It's 175 pages of photos of documents,letters, bones, name it,
I saw the exhibition and it was really amazing.
Even not reading Russian well ,I got by somehow.
It's not possible to post all the pictures from it here.just to many,
Hope this helps
By the way Columbia university has a small exhibition going on right now ,with few interesting pieces(photo albums ,personal objects,documents ) ,if I am not mistaking they have a copy of the draft of Nicholas II abdication
It's free to visit

Since I am in Prague often I love to visit the most castles as I can and learn about Czech nobility
If you don't mind to pm me and suggest anything ?I speak Czech and got not many books but started with Pribehy cesky slechty and Navraty  cesky slechty.
Thank you
