Alexander Palace Time Machine - Book Finder
Tsarskoye Selo: The Imperial Summer Residence
by L.V. Bardovskaia
A photo-history of the imperial parks & palaces of Tsarskoye Selo from Empress Elizabeth to Nicholas II. Illustrated with photos – both vintage & contemporary - and paintings of the architecture, furniture, and landscape. Primarily color illustrations.
Large, high quality reproductions of photos and paintings depicting Alexander Park & Palace, and Catherine Park & Palace. Emphasis on vintage artwork and contemporary photography.
in my opinion:
Gorgeous! However, readers whose primary interest is the Alexander Palace under the reign of Nicholas II might be disappointed, as Tsarskoye Selo is a broad historical view of the park & palace complex.
For a book focused solely on the private wing of Nicholas and Alexandra, I recommend Nicholas & Alexandra: At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family.
