A presentation copy to Ossia Trilling and his wife Marie-Louise. Ossia was a theatre critic and correspondent who was liable to crop up in any part of Europe thanks to his gift for languages. He could speak Russian, French, German, Polish, Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish and Italian and reported for numerous newspapers across the world.

Choreology is a dance notation system invented in the 1940s used to document dance and other types of human movement. It uses abstract symbols based on figurative representations of the human body and is used by the Royal Academy of Dance.
