In her eighties, Marie Gagnarine (1887-1982) composed these memoirs of growing up the granddaughter of the Czarina Alexandra’s “states-lady”: a sort of chief of staff- whose family lost all in the whirlwind of the Revolution and ended up on the faculty of Wofford College in South Carolina.

Includes an account of life at court with the last of the Romanovs. Hardcover, no dust jacket, very good condition. Affectionately inscribed by the author on the front papers. Octavo, 138 pp. Quite Rare. HBB price: $75 obo.
