I still think your book would be interesting to read.

I remember seeing photos of Taglioni. She looked as though she were at the end of her dancing days, or maybe retired.
I wonder if Cerrito too is at the end of her performance years in those two photos.
She is certainly different then the romantic image portrayed in the Chalon and Bouvier lithographs.
I would love to see real photos of Elssler and Grahn and Grisi. Does anyone know where these exist?

The Balletinas is by Parmenia Migel, published in 1972 by Macmillan Co.
Another book you would like is The Romantic Ballet, from Batsford Colour Books. (B.T. Batsford, LTD) Intro by Sacheverell Sitwell. It is a small book, published in 1948. I also found that in a used book store. It's mostly just the lithographs, with some text. But lots of wonderful pictures of the lithographs.
