This is a beautiful book, full of very beautiful photographs. Pavlova remains an enigma in relation to her private life and fair to say this book does not answer the questions. It is not a biography in words, but in photos it covers her dancing life from the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg to her worldwide tours and residence in London.
I thoroughly recommend this book. Great value for money.

A beautiful, scholarly, readable book that brings to the public photographs and content not seen before. Ravishing full-page illustrations and extensive details of Pavlova's English tours. Sadly, no index, but in spite of that, this book is a must-have for anyone who loves the ballet.
