An Intimate Portrait of the Last Days of the Russian Imperial Family. Compiled from the papers of Charles Sydney Gibbes. J. C. Trewin (editor). The House of Special Purpose. An Intimate Portrait of the Last Days of the Russian Imperial Family. Charles Gibbes (1876-1963) was the English tutor to the children of Nicholas II from 1908.

This is an eyewitness description of the last years and final days of the ill-fated Romanovs. Gibbes eventually entered the priesthood of the Russian Orthodox faith and rose to the rank of Archimandrite. NY: Stein and Day, 1975. Softcover. 148 pages. Profusely illustrated. Very good condition, corner curl and a bit of edge wear, no marks or names. Out of print.
