No, actually. How come you ask me and not the other posters who have posted from the same seller?  ??? I have bought several from this seller though--they used to have a larger selection for less money. The Kira photos have been on sale for awhile. I've bought a number of the Marie Pavlovna ones though, including some that have been posted here before by others.

The photo of Elena and her dolls is a cover of a new photoalbum just issued (in Russian). It's a rare photo-research of a woman's life in Russia in the end of the 19 cent- beginning of the 20 cent. A lof of text and many wonderful pictures from the State Archives as well as from the private collections.
I should say at once that there are no many photos of the Romanovs inside the book, some of them I had posted in various threads.
For those who are interested in Russian history (not only the Romanovs) and read Russian :


A little girl was born : Russian women in photos of the end of 19  - beginning of the 20 centuries.
the isbn 978-5-87417-247-3

aka in Russian - V semje rodilas devochka: Zhentschini Rossii v photographijah konza 19 - nachala 20 veka, publishing house "Liki Rossii",2007.

The edition is gorgeous, only 500 copies.

awesome pix. :)  It a pity, six years ago, i saw that picture in a book at school and thought nothing of it, and had no clue how they were. At first i thought the girl was  Xenia (it was title Grand Duchess and Grand Duke) not Elena, whom i didn't learn about until  a year later! lol
