First separate edition of this essay by Janet Flanner about the American dancer Isadora Duncan, originally published in The New Yorker in 1927: “Isadora is still great. By an economy (her first) she has arrived at elimination. As if the movements of dancing had become too redundant for her spirit, she has saved from dancing only its shape.” A fine example, one of two hundred copies designed by Jerry Kelly and printed at The Bookman Press.
