Nicholas and Alexandra: At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family

description:

An exhibition catalog illustrated with vintage photos of the palace, and contemporary pictures of furniture, fabric samples, clothing, and other possessions. Accompanied by essays on life in the Alexander Palace.

unique features:

Focuses on everyday life, rather than formal or ceremonial occasions. Contains a fair number of photos not seen elsewhere.

similar to:

in my opinion:

A nicely detailed look at everyday, non-ceremonial life at the Alexander Palace.
