I thought I might as well make a general thread for these occasional emails from Dance Books, so here's the latest one: "We are happy to announce a reprint of Cyril Beaumont's 'The Diaghilev Ballet in London', a vivid recollection of performances seen and friendships forged with company members. And a recent warehouse tidy has revealed a stock of new copies of Maurice Leonard's hardback biography of Alicia Markova, listed at £20 whch we're happy to order for just £4.99. You'll find full details and ordering facilities on our web site, www.dancebooks.co.uk Finally, we're auctioning a collection of ephemera from days gone by on ebay, with new items constantly added. At the time of writing items on offer include material relating to Diaghilev, Massine, Karsavina, Pavlova, Nureyev and others.
