I'm amazed he could sell the partial books with the "off" pagination. They would be close enough back then that you'd think people would notice and figure it out before they bought.

I didn't notice the pagination in Bijou at all when I was reading the book online. I caught it when I printed it out, since I was looking at the numbers to be sure I had a complete printout. I could see buying a book with a different name and cover and not really paying attention to the pagination before you actually started reading it, and maybe not even then - I got through Dancer's Own the first time without noticing that it started on page 51!

Hello, Susan -
I'm sorry you didn't approve my last comment, but I'm not sure why. I'll take down the reference to Capering and Kickery on my dance history blog if I've offended.

I don't approve or disapprove comments, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I delete spam retroactively, but I haven't deleted anything of yours, and the last comment I see from you before this was back in January on the Lambeth Walk post. Sometimes comments mysteriously fail to post. Please try again.

Part of the problem may be that spambots are flooding blogs lately (I've had over 18,000 spam comments since March 21st) and Typepad is filtering very aggressively. So some things may be getting caught that shouldn't be. I've just put a CAPTCHA filter in place to see if that helps sort out the real comments from the spam.

Just a note that Charles Durang was a Philadelphian by birth, upbringing, career, and family (the one he was born into with parents John and Mary Durang, and the one he had, which included 10 children). Like all theater folks of that time, he performed in other cities, but he was a Philly guy through and through!

Yes, absolutely. Philadelphia has quite a few wonderfully-documented dancing masters over the years. I'm a Philly native myself, and it would be fun to do a themed event around Philadelphia-specific material!
