Catalogue Note

This work was published in Russian, English and French, and is a complete record of the royal jewels of the Romanovs from the early seventeenth century onwards, some of which were subsequently disposed of by private sale and auction. The Bolshevik government recalled and destroyed copies of this catalogue, hence its extreme rarity.
