First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “Francis! A belated (45 years) signing of this book. With admiration for your contribution to dance. Affectionately, Ann (Hutchinson). June 1st, 1999”. Francis Mason was a prominent dance critic who edited the New York magazine Ballet Review for thirty years and furthered the careers of George Balanchine and Martha Graham. This volume is a “complete exposition” of the dance notation system developed by dance theorist Rudolph Laban, first introduced in 1928 and still a primary system within modern dance.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled and a little rubbed at the head and tail, spotting and partial toning to endpapers, spotting to top edge of text block, contents toned in the margins. A very good copy in the rubbed, toned, and spotted jacket with some nicks and short splits, and tape repairs to the verso.
