From the cover: “In this biography of Anna Pavlova, Miss Malvern narrates the story of the great ballerina’s life from the time when, as a child, Pavlova sees her first Ballet in the great Marinsky Theatre. Next we read about Anna’s admission to the Imperial Ballet School, and her progress in that august and strictly disciplined establishment, till she reaches the exalted position of Prima Ballerina. The figures of well-known persons move across the pages of this book. Charles Chaplin, Diaghilev, King Christian of Denmark, Kaiser Wilhelm, Nijinsky, and many of those artistes, musicians, choreographers and dancers whose contributions to their art have made Ballet what it is to-day.”
