Ryska hofvet från Peter I till Nicolaus I, jemte inledning: Ryssland före Peter I. bearbetning efter de bästa och mest tillförlitliga källor. 4 vol.
Stockholm, Meyer, 1855, 358+372+396+384 pages. Nice rebound, Having seriously angered the Swedish royal court, Crusenstolpe thought he might repeat this success, and dedicated his pen to other European courts: Prussian, French, Austrian. Western readers being traditionally less reticent about ridicule of Russian court politics than any other, especially his four volumes of Russian court histories gained popularity in German translation. His approach, combining political and cultural history with base court intrigue, may be closer to the mark than much official historiography. In any case it offers a very lively picture, which in this original edition can be enjoyed in Crusenstolpe’s own Swedish style.
