5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating photo collection March 15 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
"The Romanov Family Album" is probably one of the earlier photo collections on the last imperial family of Russia. The photographs come from the photo albums of Ania Vyrubova, Empress Aleksandra's closest friend; the albums are now among the collections in Beinecke Library at Yale University.
Most of the pictures are of the family's annual summer trips to the Crimea and through the fjords of Finland, with a fair smattering of the family during World War I and a few photographs of the imperial family in captivity at Tobolsk. Numerous lengthy excerpts from Ania Vyrubova's chatty memoirs add some entertaining color. An introduction by Robert Massie gives a brief (and interesting) history of how the albums ended up with Yale.
On the whole this is a very interesting book. The main flaw is that it's very difficult to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. March 6 2002
By E. Duncan - Published on Amazon.com
Lovely photographs. I have seen many of these before at Yale's Digital Beinecke Library, but some are new to me. It shows Nicholas II not as an autocrat or the "tyrant" historians say he was--it shows him as a kind man who adored the world he knew, that of his wife, smiling beautiful girls and his happy, albeit ill, son.

4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent pictorial account... April 4 2002
By Kaliopi Pappas - Published on Amazon.com
this is a wonderful collection of images, but so many of them are presented poorly. they're extremely grainy and tinted hideous sepia tones. chalk it up to the 80's, i guess.
despite this problem, the album is definitely worth adding to your collection if you are a serious Romanov fan. General royalty buffs who want just one Romanov photo book would do better with Prince Michael's _Nicholas & Alexandra: The Family Albums_ (a book that everyone interested in royalty and/or the Romanovs should have, imo).
3.0 out of 5 stars Ordinary but interesting overview of Nicholas and Alexandra's lives Dec 7 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Even though the photos are not at all new the book is quite interesting and gives the viewers an introduction of the lives of Nicholas II and Alexandra Fedorovna. The text is quite ordinary....from Anna Vyrubova's point of view of the typical imperial family with the important omission of the leading characters' flaws as sovereigns.
5.0 out of 5 stars Goes great with Nicholas and Alexandra May 25 2013

Most people who buy this book likely have already read "Nicholas and Alexandra" by Robert Massie. To me, it is a wonderful addition to information from that book. It is a great balance of family snapshots combined with the narrative of Anna Vyrubova from her book "Memories of the Russian Court." Of course, the introduction by Robert Massie is as well-written as any fan of his would expect.

The quantity and quality of the photographs is even better than I would have expected.
