Description: London, W.H. Allen. 1953, First Edition. Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Silver title on blue boards which are unmarked with no wear. Internally there is a neat contemporary name to front endpaper and a little light foxing to closed edges and to endpapers else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket has wear to edges, chipping, a small loss to top and is not price clipped. 294 pages. 53 illustrations. One of the world's greatest dancers writes the biography of one of the world's greatest ballerinas. Markova and Dolin are partners again; this time she is the subject and he is the chronicler of her triumphs. Out of his years of close association with Markova, Dolin has told a story no one else could. He has told it with the warmth of a friend, with the pride of a partner and with his unique understanding of the art of ballet. It is much more than a career story, for here we have, for the first time, a full-length portrait of the woman, as well as the ballerina. 4. Very Good/Good.
