Note
  • Microfilm also available, *ZBD-112. Holograph, ms., and typescript.
  • Most of the autobiographical material published in Paris under title, Quinze ans de ma vie, F. Juven, 1908, and in London under title, Fifteen years of a dancer's life, H. Jenkins, 1913.
  • English manuscript for the French edition of the autobiography published in 1908 and considerably different in style from the English edition published in 1913, but lacking only chapter 11 and sections of chapters 6 and 21, and arranged in the order of the English edition. Covers a few childhood events but primarily the events of the years from 1892-1907, including experiences with Isadora Duncan (folder 20) who is not identified by name, and her friendship with Gabrielle Bloch.
  • The collection also includes unpublished material originally intended for the autobiography; outline plans for a second volume of memoirs and material which would have become a part of it; two essays; a legal document releasing her from a contract with Charles A. Hoyt and Charles W. Thomas in 1892; programs, including a paste-up of her first performance in Kiel and a program presenting Gertrud Von Axen to Boston; 11 photographs of Loie Fuller; 30 photographs of friends and admirers, and dancers Gertrud Von Axen and Dick Fuller; and a portfolio of 24 watercolors presented to her on the occasion of her 550th performance in Paris, March 24, 1895, by students of the Beaux-Arts.
