Robert K. Massie: Nicholas and Alexandra


By Massie, Robert K.

New York: International Collectors Library Copyright 1967

Red hardcover gilt spine and front using the London Fleet Street Binding, with maps on the endpapers, red silk marker ribbon, b/w photos indexed, 613 pages. The only area of discoloration is the front of the book where it appears that another book was at sometime stuck to this book otherwise the book appears in near mint condition.

Nicholas And Alexandra re-creates one of the most dramatic and exciting eras in modern history. It is a volume that not only serves to inform the reader, but holds him utterly spellbound as he witnesses the shattering events that redirected the course of human destiny.

Because those events were interwoven so inextricably with the lives of the Romanov dynasty of Old Russia, the narrative centers largely on the intimate family life of the last of the Romanovs: Tsar Nicholas, the Tsarina Alexandra, their closely knit family… and the strange, shadowy figure of the monk and mystic, Rasputin. It is a tale of a dazzling world of huge palaces, shimmering court balls, incomparable luxury. There is, too, the tragic, incurable illness of the young heir to the throne… the hint of political ferment and intrigue …the ominous rumble of revolution …and the final cataclysmic tragedy in which the imperial family was pitilessly executed as a new tyranny replaced the old.
