Trista let tsarstvovaniya doma Romanovykh. [Three Hundred Years of Rule of the House of Romanov]. Publication: Golike i Vilborg, Skt. Peterburg, 1912. First edition of this richly illustrated history of Russia's ruling house. A detailed and colourful account of the Romanov family's period of power by an author who, as demonstrated by his Nevskiy Prospekt 1703-1903 (publ. 1901-3), seems to have specialised in such historical sweeps. The celebrations marked by this volume's publication are bestowed much pathos by the tragic events ve years later. Description: Quarto (36.5 x 27.5 cm). Chromolithographed title, 170,  pp., with 22 plates incl. 19 in colour, mostly protected by tissue guards, and two facsimile plates. Publisher’s green cloth, upper board incorporating chromolithograph cover printed in colour and silver, blind stamped border to lower board, at spine lettered and decorated in gilt; rubbed and worn.
