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.
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).
