Lost Splendour [1st English edition, in scarce dust jacket]

£39.99

Product description

This memoir by Prince Youssoupoff, a participant in the assassination of Grigori Rasputin, discusses this pivotal historical event, and also offers an interesting glimpse of the life of Russian nobility before the Great War and the Russian revolution of 1917.

Prince Felix Felixovich Yusupov (1887–1967) was a Russian aristocrat, prince and count from the Yusupov family, best known for participating in the assassination of Grigori Rasputin and marrying the niece of Tsar Nicholas II.

Our book is in excellent condition, protected by an unclipped dust jacket which is a little worn and darkened consistent with its age, but intact. Some tearing at top edge. The book itself, bound in rose-red cloth with a silver device on the front and title etc in silver lettering on a blue panel on the spine, shows almost no external signs of wear. Internally, also, it is in very good condition, the binding firm with no loose pages, all pages clean and bright, no inscriptions, signatures or foxing. Twelve pages of B/W illustrations (17 pictures in total).
