Bourbon-Orléans: A family album by Michael of Greece
« on: January 09, 2010, 04:04:50 AM »
We have already talked about this very book on the thread about the upcoming book 2009, but this book certainly deserves it's own thread. On amazon.co.uk and .de it is still labeled as "not yet available" - any informations about this?

I've recently got my copy through hoogstraten.nl.

The book is good, some photos are very rare

Hi,

I received my copy through Arturo at Eurohistory yesterday.
All the many photos are great and some quite rare.

I looked at the pictures but until I read the copy, I hope to be more educated about the Bourbon-Orleans...

Great book - get it!!

Thank you guys! I haved longed for that book since I have first heard of it and so I now ordered it at hoogstraten as amazon would most likely let me wait forever... :-P

Where you do you get "Mon Album de Famille"?  I can find the Burbon-Orleons book on a couple of sites, but not this one.

Then you must be lucky, because this book is from 1996

I found some copies of that book on amazon.fr/co.uk/.de and abebooks but for rather exaggerated prices (120 € - open end). When I bought my copy of this lovely book some years ago I only payed about 40 €. Nonetheless I would say the book is even worth 120€ (for enthusiasts) as many pictures in the book are still rare.

I found the photo's in Mon Album de Famille, more serious. Almost no pictures taken of weddings, many postmortem photo's and it was focused on the family of the Comte of Paris. Henry, Comte de Paris cousin of Prince Michael was also an author of this book.

Without having a look at the book I remember pictures of the wedding of both Princess Louise to Infant Carlos and of Prince Jean's (the later count of Paris) wedding to Princess Isabelle of Orléans-Braganza. Nonetheless I understand what you mean by serious, the book offers a lot of text besides the pictures as well which the Rosvall books usually don'T.

We have been selling Prince Michael's book for almost a month now. We also have one copy left of Mon Album de Famille – a lot of the photos used for it I purchased from the French Royal Family between 1999-2004.

No I do not have those two books there. I will place the new Michael of Greece one. The MO ALBUM DE FAMILLE is in our printed booklist, which is mailed once a year to subscribers. of the European Royal History Journal.
