The Grand Dukes

Let's just say I am not a very patient person.  I've been waiting for several years for the publication of The Grand Dukes by  Suffice to say, I have a vested interest in the book as I wrote the article on Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovitch.  In fact, I wrote the chapter several years ago.
The book has been finally published ... well, sort of.  The publisher and editor, Art Beeche, decided to published The Grand Dukes in two volumes.  The first volume, which was released earlier this month,  focuses on the sons and grandsons of Russia's Tsars since Paul.  
My Grand Duke was a great-grandson of a Tsar, which means my chapter will be published in the second volume, due out toward the end of the year.  Yea!

The contributors for both volumes are Janet Ashton, Arturo E. Beeche, Zoia Belyakova, Lisa Davidson, Coryne Hall, Ilana Miller, Greg King, Marlene Eilers Koenig, William Lee and John van der Kiste.  Charles Stewart wrote the introduction.

The first volume has 38 pages of illustrations. also published The Grand Duchesses -- a definite must have!
