Getz-McDonagh Dance Library auction

Recommended Posts

Between the two of them, Leslie Getz and Don McDonagh had one of the most extensive private dance libraries in the US.  Getz, who had been collecting since the middle of the 20th c, was also the author/publisher of Attitudes and Arabesques, a long running catalog of dance publications  (books, journals, etc).  Before the internet made it simple to search for texts, and for dance publishers to advertise their wares, A and A was the way most of us learned of new publications.  Getz died recently, and McDonagh is unable to continue the work alone -- they did not make arrangements to donate or sell their collection, and so it is being auctioned.  Take a few minutes to browse the online catalog -- it is full of wonders.
