This collection contains scores and choreographic notes used to stage the first full ballet performance of David W. Guion's work Shingandi in 1933, by Theodore Kosloff and the Kosloff Ballet Company. It contains an orchestral score, a set of orchestral parts, a piano score, and two-piano parts. The piano score is heavily annotated with choreographic directions by Kosloff.

These materials form an addition to the David Wendell Guion Collection at the Ransom Center, which also includes an original manuscript sketch and two piano parts of Shingandi, dating from approximately 1929.
