Here is a horror story!
I have a very fine bound copy of this this text printed on lovely acid free paper - which for some evil reason one of my cats has suddenly thought would be tastey for her dinner!
Lucky (or unlucky) me - :-/-
Only the edges were damaged!

arrrrggg!

But rskkiya   how else can you have a literary cat who prefers to digest information with such abandon?  ;)

LOL! ;D :D

I have several copies of Figes books, and while I think these to be brilliant works - and I would rather not have her shread any of them - it is far easier (and cheaper) to replace a copy of A Peoples Tragedy than this text!

The "tragedy" of such a loss would be your own rather than that of a entire nation.

Poor puss indeed!

It seems that if anyone wants this book, try to avoid letting your pets get near it!

Hello folks,

One simple question:

Would you buy: The Complete Wartime correspondece of Tsar Nicholas II and the Empress Alexandra, by Joseph T. Fuhrmann if it would be reprinted?

Considering that the price is: UK Sterling Price of 96,_  :) (this is a serious question, because I hope for a reprint)

The question is academic to me- I already have it. But, it is worth buying if it is reprinted, as it can be hard to find.

Is it very interesting? Sounds like it could be a bit dry especially if it goes on about war etc! That's just my interpretation :)

I would buy it but sadly it would be when it it the second hand shop.  Unless one of my sisters in law were buying it for a present.

Like Robert, I also possess this publication. In my oponion you may be waiting for a long time to purchase a reprint. If you believe that the contents will meet your personal interests, then yes, the 96 Pounds maybe not such a horrendous amount to part with.

Remember that Wortman's Scenarios of Power was recently reprinted as a single tome in abridged form. (A pity, because the original 2 volume set is far better).

Is the copyright lapsed on it? Perhaps someday it might be posted, like some other books, on the main AP site?

Maybe the CR has indeed expired by now? What a great idea nevertheless!

I too would be all over a republish and would buy it, if I didn't already own it.
How many sales are needed to make a republication?

This is the anwer I got, from the publisher about a reprint.

We don't currently have enough backorders to print this title.  If you could commit to purchasing 5 copies, we could print this title and it would be available again.  The book is $169.95 per copy.

At that price, only 5 orders seems reasonable. Talk about "limited edition"! It has 769 pages of smaller than usual print.  Not an easy or cheap job to do.
 It is far from dry, btw. Of course  it has a lot about the war, hence the title. But it is the corresspondence of two people who are still deeply in love with each other, very personal Excellent reference from their viewpoints about such important events.
The languge of the era is a bit saccharine for my tatses but that is just them.
I agree with Belochka about Scenarios of Power. I would never even consider an abridged version. I do not buy abridged versions of ANY book, even fiction.
