Belgrad: Stefanovich, 1921. First printing. Hardcover. Small quarto, 11.25 x 8.75 inches, boards, good copy with boards somewhat rubbed and tanned, contents good but with some tanning, chipping and wear to first blank, title page with some edgewear, tide-mark from old waterstain to upper inner corner throughout. 82 pp, illustrated with plates. Uncommon. A Botkin family copy, obtained from Alex Botkin of Pittsburgh, grandson of Tatiana Botkina Melnik. Tatiana's grandfather, Sergey Botkin, Head Surgeon to the Emperor, having been among the court physicians for both Tsar Alexander II and Tsar Alexander III and one of the great founders of modern Russian medical science, pathological anatomy and post-morten diagnostics; his son, Eugene, was the court physician for the family of Tsar Nicholas II; he accompanied the family into exile and was killed by the Bolsheviks in July 1918. Daughter Tatiana who authored this memoir, begged to be allowed to accompany her family but was not allowed. She eventually settled in France; she was a lifelong supporter of Anna Anderson's claim that she was Grand Duchess Anastasia. This copy is accompanied by a large (9.5 x 6.5 inches) portrait photo of Sergey Botkin (1832-1889), a smaller (4 x 2.5 inches) photo of him mounted to a stiff sheet, and some Russian newspaper articles from 1909 on the Botkins pasted to sheets of stationary. The larger cabinet photo with some abrasions and wear. An interesting book with nice family memorabilia by an important Tsar-related family. Alex Botkin, now in his seventies, looks EXACTLY like Sergey Botkin. Good. Item #H20996
