This book provides a unique perspective on the life of Russian Emperor Nicholas I, as it was the first biography of him to be written in Russian. The author, Paul Lacroix, was a renowned bibliophile from France who received a pension from Russia for writing this work. Although the book was never completed, V.I. Mezhov notes that three issues of the first volume were published. However, there is no further information regarding a third issue. Despite its scarcity in trade, this book can be found in several institutional collections, with only two issues of the first volume.
