A poignant evocation of the life of the last Romanov tsar and tsarina, this superbly illustrated book is both historical documentary and art book. It includes over 600 images of costumes, official regalia portraits, books, icons and jewellery belonging to, or associated with, the imperial family. In addition, the book contains previously unpublished documentary material from the State Archive in Moscow: diaries of the tsar's family, their photo albums, letters and personal memorabilia, as well as historical documents relating to the family's murder. In the words of Dr Mikhail Piotrovsky, Director of the Hermitage, Nicholas &Alexandra 'presents the final chapter of tsarist Russia as it's never been told before.' This magnificent, compelling volume reveals in unparalleled detail the luxurious world and private lives of Nicholas II, the last tsar of Russia, his wife, Alexandra, and their five children. It accompanies the largest collection of Imperial family treasures ever to leave Russia, on exhibit through Dec. 31, 1998, at the First USA Riverfront Arts Center, Wilmington, Delaware. 644 color illustrations.
