Tsarskie Deti
« on: October 03, 2006, 11:22:12 AM »
Here's another question for all you Russian readers:

How's this book -- Tsarskie Deti, by NK Bonetskaia
ISBN: 5753302688
447 pages

I see it for sale online from time to time, but given the constraints of my budget and my Russian skills, I don't know if it's worth buying. Is the information new at all? I already have Gilliard's & Tatiana Botkin's memoirs, for example. I would DEFINITELY be interested if it includes excerpts from the children's diaries and letters.

Nothing new in this publication that cannot be gleaned from elsewhere. It is a compilation of various authorships from that period.

The quality is less than great.
