Six Years at the Russian Court

description:

A memoir and travelogue by the nanny in charge of Nicholas II's children from 1898 to 1904.
 
Includes 24 plates of black and white illustrations.

unique features:

Anecdotes from the infancy and early childhood of Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia Nikolaevna.

in my opinion:

Although her attitude toward Russia in general is somewhat condescending, there is no other English source similarly focused on the early childhood of the grand duchesses.
