The Russian ballet by Ellen Terry( Book )

17 editions published between 1913 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An illustrated volume, The Russian Ballet features chapters on famous ballets and ballet dancers of Russian origin. The first Russian Ballet company, the Imperial School of Ballet, opened in the early 1740s and started the dance tradition in the country. In the early days of ballet, theaters were accessible only by the wealthy, and the dances were performed in front of smaller audiences. In the early 19th century, Russian ballet theaters were opened for all people to attend. Featuring varying seating sections, wealthy patrons would sit in plush chairs with balcony seating while poorer fans would sit in the "paradise gallery," a section with simple wooden benches. With the founding of the Ballets Russes in 1909, Russian ballet became an elite sect of the art form. Thanks to the efforts of Sergey Diaghilev, Russian classical ballet spread across the world with his troupe's headquarters located in Paris and his protege opening the New York City Ballet in America. Today, the Russian Kirov Ballet (also known as the Mariinsky Ballet) tours the world as one of the most famous and successful ballet companies in history

Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )

3 editions published between 1855 and 1871 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.
