My copy, new edition in English, just arrived. A wonderful book! I ordered it  direct from the publisher and it was quite easy through Western Union. Also a lot less thatn $90 !!
Just saw this.  Good for you, Robert! It's a purchase I've never regretted.  Also, I thought the concept of the book was incredibly original.  So fascinating to see a Fabergé Egg dissected and expanded upon for its personal attachment to the owner.

Not only is the book itself great, the people at the publisher were also very good and  made the transaction  quite easy and comfortable.

It ended up costing me AU$100 with postage to Australia.  I ended up using western Union as well, which has a $30 fee which was part of the overall cost....but still cheaper and easier than using the bank to do the same thing and they don't take paypal.

Well...it does not suit you if you come from another country.

It never does.  I think almost everybody on here has sung the rare book blues at one point or another! :-)

I've decided to film a flip through video so that forum members can get an idea of what's inside this book.

Since this is a thread about Marie Feodorovna's favorite residences and palaces,  there is a new  book devoted to Hvidøre.  The title is "HVIDØRE - A Royal Retreat".  The authors are Coryne Hall and Senta Driver
It is a lovely book, a must have if you are a fan of Marie Feodorovna and Queen Alexandra!

Should be good. Senta Driver had bought a book with interior shots of Hvidore, good she and Coryne Hall did a book together.
