287 p., index. "These memoirs can really be described as two books in one. "There is the fascinating and invaluable record of the Diaghileu Ballet, written by Diaghileu’s principal character dancer, who, in spite of her Russian name and the Russian fervor of her dancing, was an English girl from East London .Sokolova was with the [company] in the early days of Nijinsky, Karsavina, and Fokine, and was still with it in 1929 when Diaghileu’s death put an end to the great enterprise." And there is the personal story of "The Queen of English Dancers" in a difficult marriage, as an anxious mother, etc. Excellent b&w photos of Sokolova and members of the troupe in many roles and fabulous costumes. Black cloth cover, fine; white dust jacket very good with ¼" closed tear at top of front cover, slight wrinkling and chipping on spine, sun-browned spine. Bookseller Inventory # 846-UN2
