I bought it from a bookstore in London called DANCE BOOKS LTD.
It's a wonderful book with great information and many pictures of the Romantic Era Ballerinas.
I still would like to own the big color prints of these Romantic Era Ballerinas that were sold in the 1960s.
Does anyone know how to get these prints?

Glebb, perhaps you could ask the owners of Dance Books about how to get such color prints.

the bigger color prints from the 6Os do show-up sometimes at general house-sales overhere. They are difficult to trace because they appear in un-catalogued sales. I think they are more likely to find in the UK. In the past 5 years, I saw some a few times....if I hear or see again something about them, I'll send you an alert. Strange, I've never seen them on Ebay ?!

Victoria has already located something at ebay and I have bought it, so keep the info coming!

There are many other lithograph shops in the area but this one, as I recall, focuses on theatrical arts themes. The owner always has LOTS of ballet items & she is extremely knowledgeable on the ballet-lithographs topic.
Warning, though - they are pricey but they are beautiful & authentic with certifications/registration, e.g., I paid about 600 L for a Fanny Elssler-Cachucha 'Beautees de l'Opera' lithograph after lots of bargaining with the lady who owns the shop!
