Alexandra Posted May 9, 2000 Report Share Posted May 9, 2000 I'm presently in Berkeley, and recently visited two used books bookstores which both have a rather large collection of dance books. But it's hard to choose (all the more that I can't spend too much on it), so I'm requesting the advice of the readers of this board. Here is a list of some books I saw, what do you think about them (good or bad comments are welcome)?: -Lincoln Kirstein, "Portrait of Mr B" -Lincoln Kirstein, "30 years, the NYCB" -Francis Mason, "I remember Balanchine" -Garis, "Following Balanchine" -B. Taper, "Balanchine" -R. Buckle, "Balanchine" -R. Buckle, "Nijinsky" -R. Buckle, "Diaghilev" -Bronislava Nijinska, "Early memoirs" -Margot Fonteyn, "A dancer's world" -Sorrell, "The dancer's image" -Sorrell, "The dance has many faces" -Sorrell, "Dance in its time" -D. Jowitt, "Time and the dancing image" -Grosland, "Ballet Carnival" -Kay Ambrose, "The ballet lover's companion" -Bird, "Bird's eye view" -Robert (?), "The Borzoi book of ballets" -Chazin- Bennahum, "The ballets of Antony Tudor" -Easton, "No intermissions (Agnes De Mille)" -Gherman, "Agnes De Mille, dancing off the earth" And also a few modern-dance related books (hoping that it isn't too unappropriate): -Agnes De Mille, "Martha" -Armitage, "Martha Graham, the early years" -"Doris Humphrey, an artist first" -Cohen, "The modern dance" -Graff, "Stepping left" -Siegel, "Days on earth (Humphrey)" It's a long list, but perhaps the comments would be useful to some other readers of this board too!
