Books reviews
Kale
Good condition for a used book. Description was accurate. Important information for ballet devotees and novices drawn to this book by the promise of the illustrations.

Kochno's book, translated from the French, is a wide-ranging look at the Ballets Russe and features many images from Kochno's collection.

A quality piece of work from Harper & Row: hardback, cloth over boards, large format, released with dustcover. 293 pp, 3.75 pounds. Something like 325 illustrations, many of them full-page, about 30% of them in color: photos, portraits, sketches, ephemera, set design sketches and finished art, costume designs, posters, programs, and even images from rehearsals or of dancers simulating movement (a step past the traditional ballet "star portrait" tradition.) Indexed.

Includes "Autobiographical Notes" by Diaghilev and "Diaghilev Discusses Classical Dance."

There is coverage of over 65 projects -- the famous ones (Firebird, Le Sacre de Printemps, Salome, Parade, Jeux, Prince Igor, Reynard, Jack in the Box, Oedipus) as well as the obscure.

There are, of course, newer and more slickly-packaged books on the Ballets Russe, but I find this one hard to put down.
