Skorbnaia Pamiatka (Sorrowful Memorial)

description:

A memoir by Major General A.V. Syroboiarskii, a patient at the lazaret in Tsarskoye Selo, who became acquainted with the empress and her daughters and maintained contact with Alexandra after his return to the front.

 
(Title in Russian: Скорбная Памятка)

unique features:

Includes Syroboiarskii's letters from the empress Alexandra up to and including her exile in Tobolsk, as well as eighteen rare photos of the imperial family taken in and around the lazaret at Tsarskoye Selo.

similar to:

Avgusteyshie Sestry Miloserdiya (Royal Sisters of Mercy)

in my opinion:

Quite a rare volume indeed -- apparently privately published. The photos are not found elsewhere, and are printed in quite good quality on heavy semi-gloss paper.
