MONA INGLESBY Ballerina and Choreographer. Geoffrey Handley-Taylor. Vawser & Wiles Ltd., London. 1947 First edition. 72pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in exceptionally fine condition in a similarly crisp unclipped dust wrapper. The name Mona Inglesby is no longer one dance-lovers conjure with. But in the war years, she was more famous than Fonteyn. In 1941, when she was 22, Mona Inglesby founded the International Ballet. For the next 13 years, through some of the worst austerity Britain has ever known, she ran it entirely on the basis of its box-office success. It’s a feat never repeated by any ballet company since. Almost immediately, dancers who had found themselves at a loose end as war broke out flocked to this new company. Some would become world names in ballet – Moira Shearer, Harold Turner, Maurice Béjart. The International Ballet swiftly grew into Britain’s largest ballet company, 80-strong at its height, performing more shows in the late Forties and early Fifties than the Sadler’s Wells and Festival Ballets combined. And it was the International Ballet that the new Royal Festival Hall invited to perform its inaugural season in 1951. Inglesby was on the front cover of ballet magazines that featured a youngster called Margot Fonteyn inside. But while the other great women of British ballet such as Ninette de Valois, who founded the Royal Ballet, and Marie Rambert, original progenitor of Rambert Dance, were made dames, Inglesby died in 2006 without so much as an OBE. Her achievements seem to have been missed out of the story of ballet in Britain. Ref Z5 Size: 72pp. N° de ref. de la librería 008996
