Has anyone bought this catalogue but not gone to the exhibition? I would love to purchase this, but I have no chance of going since I live in New York.  :'( I went on the Royal Museum site, but it gives no real information about purchasing the catalogue if you're in my position. Does anyone know if a person can just call the number listed or email? Is there a more elaborate process for foreigners?

Amazon is pre-selling the catalog for $18.15.  It looks like it won't be released until the end of August.  Search by the ISBN number (see previous post).   I'm wondering if this exhibit has alot of the same items from the exhibit that was in Newark, New Jersey and Mobile, Alabama about six years ago that was sponsored by Broughton International.

Leslie, thank you so much for the information regarding the catalogue.  If it's not too much trouble, could you please post the link to it on Amazon.com?  

Thank you in advance.

The "Russian Field" crown is part of the exhibit, "Jewels of the Romanovs: Treasures of the Russian Imperial Court," which opened its only West Coast appearance Saturday Aug. 16, 1997 at the San Diego Museum of Art. (AP Photo/Joan C. Fahrenthold)
 

A Gothic style bracelet with a flat polished diamond from the Jewels of Romanovs exhibit is shown in a handout photo. The exhibit, from five Russian museums, was to have been sent this week to the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, after being on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington. Because of a dispute between the American foundation, which raised the money to bring the objects to the United States, and the Russian Embassy, the objects are at a standstill in Washington.
