KATIN-YARTSEV, M., & A. SHUMKOV (EDS.)
Costume Ball in the Winter Palace. 2 Volumes. (Kostiumirovannyi Bal V Zimnem Dvortse ) Bi-Lingual English-Russian Edition.
. 2003. Volume 1: Album with photographs with biographical references / Al'bom s fotografiiami i biograficheskimi stat'iami. 464pp. 198 photographs, some in colour Volume 2: Research, documents, materials with added notes and a coloured section of the garments worn which moved through various museums in the 1930-ies. Also added a supplement with photographs of the guests at the ball not included in the album as separate pictures. This 2nd volumes is in English only 128pp. Edition of 4000 copies One hundred years ago the office in charge of editing the State papers started work on the creation of a unique album : that of photogravures and photographs of the guests at the costume ball that took place in the winter Palace on 11 and 13 February 1903. The participants all wore 17th century clothing. In the end it was the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna herself who became the editor-in-chief of this album. Only a few copies of the original album survive in libraries and private collections. This edition is not a reprint of that rare 1904 volume, but it is an attempt by the publishers to show the guests of the ball as we see them today, one hundred years later. It is the scene of a bygone era, the last such event in the history of the House of Romanov. Over one hundred photographs have been traced and these have been provided with full biographical details, although many of these notes finish with the lines "fate after 1917 unknown". A number of photographs not included in the 1904 edition have been added here. The main volume contains the photographs with texts in Russian and English. The photographs measuring 140 x 260 mm are magnificent. The 2nd volume, entirely in English, contains the newly found photographs and editorial materials, modern photographs of some of the uniforms, dresses, clothing surviving in some museums in full colours. Fine hardbacks in slip case. forwarding costs vary from country to country, the weight is 6 KG. Please ask for details of shipping (DHL + insurance) before you order. the set is in pristine condition. Many pictures available on our site. NOW OUT OF PRINT.

CROSS, A.G.,
The Russian Theme in English Literature. From
. the Sixteenth Century to 1980. An Introductory Survey and a Bibliography, CONTENTS: Introduction / Chronological Index / Author Index / Short Title Index / Subject Index Both the introductory essay and the new bibliography break completely new ground in the study of Anglo-Russian literary relations. The long introductory essay (of about 22,000 words) attempts to survey Russian themes in original English imaginative writing (poetry, plays, novels) from Elizabethan times up to the present day against the background of general de4velopments in Anglo-Russian relations. It reveals the persistent interest in Russia over more than four centuries by a host of writers, both major and log-since forgotten, and introduces little known works in all genres which provide an interesting insight into English attitudes and prejudices. The bibliography lists nearly 1100 works and is divided into four sections. The first and central part is the chronological listing, arranged according to the publication date of the first British edition. Full details of American editions are given only when no British edition subsequently appeared, although indications of prior publication in the U.S.A. and of any differences in title are provided in the annotation. The second listing is an alphabetical index of authors. Numbers locate the works by the individual authors in the chronological index. Finally, there is a Subject Index, which performs the function of allowing researchers to identify works in the first Index that refer to such broad areas as 'Peter the Great', '1812', 'the Crimean War', 'Nihilists', 'the October revolution'. Oxford, 1985; 278pp. bound in d/j, illustrated fine copy.
