The Chronicle of Tatoϊ, Volume A 1800-1916 and Volume B 1917-2003, two-volumes, slipcased. Vol A 463pp, Vol B 323pp. 367 illustrations.

A history of Tatoï, the summer palace and estate of the former Greek royal family. This book presents a detailed history of a building that was unique by virtue of the nature of its owners. The text embraces many realities simultaneously, thanks to the use of a variety of historical sources, ranging from official state documents to personal diaries and correspondence.

Against a continuously renewed natural and architectural background, readers see the history unfolding of four or five generations of men, from labourers and peasants to members of the royal family. The latter are often approached by the author, through their hitherto unknown private documents and personal reminiscences, as private individuals. At the same time, Tatoï is used as a reference point through which readers follow the course of Greek political, social and diplomatic history over the period of about a century (1871-1973). Photographs, drawings and maps supplement the text.
