unique features:

Includes Aleksei's diary from January to March of 1918, and a series of letters exchanged by the imperial family during their separation in April and May of 1918 that have not to my knowledge been printed elsewhere. Also contains a handful of rare photos, and a diagram of the layout of the governor's mansion in Tobolsk.

in my opinion:

Worthwhile for the unique documentary evidence mentioned above.
