Signed and numbered 419 by Bie on bookplate pasted down onto FEP. Thick 8vo. 370 pp. With original gilt-pictorial paper vellum. Ballet and formal dance is but a small section of the survey, and dance music is treated as a major topic onto itself. The vellum has some soiling, and some crinkle lines on the spine, but remains handsome indeed. A few creases on the rear endpapers and vellum. Toning around edges of endpapers and leaves within. The most occasional light foxing within, but overall quite clean and attractive. With many plates, some colored, mounted onto more textured, brownish paper.
