Large 8-1/2″ x 11″ format, 242 pages, featuring
400+ black & white photos

This richly illustrated pictorial is a celebration of the beauty and splendour of a lost world: Imperial Russia during the reign of Emperor Nicholas II, from 1894 to 1917.

More than 400+ black and white photographs showcase Imperial residences, country estates and manor houses, dachas, churches, government buildings, hotels, restaurants, historic events, people and much more.

The Lost World of Imperial Russia, is a remarkable photographic record of one of the world’s greatest empires—one that both attracts and eludes description.

While many of the architectural gems of Imperial Russia have survived to the present day, many others have been lost to history: revolution, civil war, two world wars and 70+ years of Soviet dogma have each taken their toll on Russia’s rich architectural heritage. Many of the photographs in this album remain the only evidence of their existence.
