Dancers Buildings and People in the Streets
Edwin Denby. Introduction by Frank O'Hara.
Horizon Press: New York, 1965. Octavo. Black and blue boards with some sunning and foxing affecting the top edge of the front and back boards, also foxing on the top edge of the text block. Jacket has chipping to the crown and heel of the spine with a piece of scotch tape on the inside of both the crown and heel. 287 pages. First edition. Very good.
A high-spot from the poet and dance critic concerning the achievements of modern dance with a brilliant introduction by O'Hara.
“You know it is an illusion, but you see it happen; you feel it happen, you enjoy believing it. There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.”
