For two decades, “Liki Rossii”, an information and publishing company,
has published many books and photographic albums on topics ranging from
the history of Russia to Saint Petersburg and the Romanov Dynasty. Some
of our books were devoted to a particular branch of the Imperial Family,
the “Vladimirovichi” – Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich and his descendants.
Among these works were: the memoires of Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich and
his spouse Grand Duchess Leonida Georgievna, “Russia is in our hearts”,
published in 1995. The memoires of Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich,
“My life in Russia’s Service,” were issued one year later.
The authors, Galina Korneva and Tatiana Cheboksarova, have
been working on this topic for many years. Back in 2001, “Liki Rossii” published
an important and one-of-akind guidebook, “Saint-Petersburg Palace of Grand Duke
Vladimir,” authored by Korneva and Cheboksarova. It was to become the first of
many such collaborations. The authors take part in conferences both in Russia
and abroad; they deliver lectures and write articles on a regular basis. In fact,
they have authored nearly 30 articles devoted to different aspects of Grand
Duke Vladimir activity, as well as the life of members of his family.
One the latest books written by G. Korneva and T. Cheboksarova
is titled “Russia and Europe – Dynastic Ties.” It contains many pages dedicated to
detailed descriptions of this branch of Romanov family. “Liki Rossii” published it
in 2010 in Russian and in 2012 in English. Expanded with many archival photographs,
kindly provided by publisher and collector Arturo E. Beеche, it was printed in USA by
Eurohistory.com in 2013 The authors used considerable amounts of archival documents
that they collected during many years working in various archives, both in Russia and
abroad. The book “Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna” includes also more than 300 photographs
from archives and private collections. In a further collaboration with Eurohistory.com,
nearly 70 photographs were kindly given to the authors by Arturo E. Beеche. In fact,
as was the case with “Russia and Europe,” Eurohistory.com is publishing “Grand Duchess
Maria Pavlovna” for the American, European and world markets.
Proficiency in several foreign languages provided G. Korneva and
T. Cheboksarova the chance to read and analyze a period covering the end of 19th –
beginning of 20th century. Many of these works were printed in Russia, England, Germany,
while also serving as source for many previously unseen photographs. Without a doubt,
the authors’ detailed knowledge of the topic only further enriches this very unique book.
