Jewel Album of Nicholas II and a Collection Private Photographs of the Russian Imperial Family

description:

A facsimile of Nicholas II’s jewel album – Nicholas II’s personal inventory of jewelry received as gifts, complete with watercolor illustrations of each piece by the Tsar himself. Also included are a number of informal photos, many from the collection of Empress Alexandra’s sister, Princess Irene of Prussia. (Email for scan of slipcase.)

unique features:

Everything. Nicholas's jewel album has not been reproduced elsewhere, and the majority of the photos are unique to this vloume.

in my opinion:

A finely made volume of rare images. Originally released in a green board slipcover.
