173 Nelson, Hilda The Ecuyere Of The Nineteenth Century In The Circus With an Epilogue on Four Contemporary Ecuyeres
Cleveland Heights, OH Xenophon Press 2001 0933316143 / 9780933316140 First Edition Softcover New 
NEW. Cover is a blue ground with a color illustration of crowds enjoying the equestrian performance of the circus. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Illustrated with b/w photos. "Circus was quite a serious thing in nineteenth and early twentieth century Europe. Edmond and Jules de Goncourt noted in their Journal "We go to only one theater--the Circus. There we see clowns, tumblers....there is no false exhibition of talent..." Balzac believed that a circus equestrienne was worth more respect than an actress, a prima ballerina or an opera prima donna. And indeed, equestrians were the kings of the circus--and equestriennes, its idolized queens. For horsemanship was important then. It was more than mere entertainment. Wars had been won by good horsemen. Horses were still man's most valuable partner in so many aspects of everyday life. And the circus had been created by and for equestrians...Nelson takes us to a wonderful, often surprising journey with the greatest circus equestriennes of the nineteenth century, who reigned with so much flair over the most prestigious rings of Europe...puts back the spotlight on these unjustly forgotten stars of the circus of yore...' Many of the moves illustrated are very familiar 'haute ecole' moves in classical dressage--piaffe, Spanish walk, passage; as well as the more esoteric 'airs above of the ground' most familiar today as performed by the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and the Cadre Noir in Saumur. These moves include the courbette, capriole, levade, pesade, etc. These circuses were housed in grand, theatrical palaces, not movable tents; but in buildings as exquisite as the equestrians/equestriennes and their horses, a fitting setting for these memorable equine artists. Includes a glossary and index. Very scarce title, and a wonderfully masterful history of horses, and especially their women riders. ; B&W Illustrations; 7 1/4 x 9 1/4; 210 pages
