unique features:

Contemporary full-color photos of the Imperial Family’s palaces, parks, and possessions scattered throughout.

similar to:

Nicholas II: The Imperial Family
Romanovs: Love, Power & Tragedy
Anastasia's Album

in my opinion:

Probably the best broad-scope photo-biography, particularly for the Romanov novice. Solid text and plentiful photos, reproduced on a large scale, for a reasonable price.
