Excerpt from The Antique Greek Dance, After Sculptured and Painted Figures

Without the assistance of Dr. Marey, member of the Institute, and of M. Hansen, Master of the Ballet of the Opera, I should have lacked much of the material for this work. M. Hansen, who unites great learning with a charming personality, consented to give me his opinion of each of the representations of movements shown on the vases and bas-reliefs which I have used; he even went further, he gave me the benefit of his experience in the analysis of these movements by photography. To Dr. Marey I am indebted for help in my arrangement of the series of figures which form the basis of this work. I beg them to accept my profound thanks.

With my whole heart I thank M. Croiset, member of the Institute, whose advice was most valuable; M. Collignon, member of the Institute, who permitted me to ask his assistance in classifying the paintings and sculptures; M. Pettier, of the Louvre Museum, who not only opened the glass cases there, but who gave me the benefit of his erudition; M. Miintz, member of the Institute, archivist of the School of the Beaux-Arts; M.de Chantepie, administrator of the Library of the Sorbonne, and his collaborators, MM. Chatelain, Lehot, Mortet, who, in their great kindness, made themselves as the instruments of toil in my hands; M. Nuitter, archivist of the Opera, who put me in communication with many interesting manuscripts; M. Babelon, curator of the Cabinet of Medals, through whom I am enabled to publish some hitherto unpublished types of antique dancers.

I express my gratitude toM. Havet, member of the Institute, who made me welcome at all times when I was in need of his advice.

I would testify to the inspiration which I received from M. Bourgault-Ducoudray's lessons on the history of music.
