Felix, the name of the book is A Romanov Diary, and it was published by Atlantic International in 1990 or so.  I was the co-editor of the book.  
A Romanov Diary was published in a limited edition -- less than 1000 copies.  The firm was closed down after the death of the publisher.

The book is very difficult to find.  I just checked addall.com and saw no copies.  Addall is one of the best places to look for out of print books because it searches so many of the other sources, such as alibris and abebooks.

Sometimes it's all serendipity. I actually found one on ebay one day when I was just trolling around. It still cost a pretty penny (over $100). You just have to luck into one. I got Inheritors of Alexander the Great (another rare one by the same publisher) for just $8 so it averages out to only about $54/ea so that's not tooo bad.  :)

I lent mine to someone.  I purchased it in the late 1980's or early 90's...when it first came out from Atlantis Publications...but that person never returned it and I lost contact with him.   :-[

Inheritors was the first book.  When I closed down Atlantic after George died, I returned all stock to the respective authors, but kept a box of A Romanov Diary, selling off copies to fulfil orders.  I also sold all but one of my stock, and mad that I did that.  However, a few years ago, I found another copy from a dealer, and bought it, so now I have two again.  (Not selling the second copy.)

Good for you...I have two copies of Inheritors, Grand Dukes and QVD, but none of Marie...i remain hopeful and know one day I may get one again.  I never did order the one George did on Tino though.  :-(

I hate when that happens.  Someone made off with my ROYAL COURTS OF EUROPE (the Massie book) and I only purchased it years later.  I longed for it!
So long and thanks for all the fish

I never loan my books to anyone - for fear that I won't get it back.

Hello felix,   you may be able to recieve a copy of the Grandduchess George book though amazon.com.  I recieved my copy yesterday (second hand, but great condition). The cost was only 23.00 dollars. I was put on a waiting list, and it took only two weeks.
hope this helps :)
