Nicolai and Serge Legat published a collection of caricatures in water colour. The album contained ninety-four cartoons of the most famous people of the day in the ballet world. It was published at twenty-five roubles, but in spite of the high price it was quickly sold out. A copy bound in white leather was presented to the Tsar Nicolas II. The title was The Russian Ballet in Caricature.

Legat lost everything he possessed during the revolution, including his albums.All the originals are in the Bakhrushin Museum in Moscow together with many other drawings.

Legat met a friend and former pupil, Laurent Novikoff in London who possessed a copy of the chief album in colour and had them reproduced.

Some of the caricatures in the archives are reprints from the album and some are copies of copies.
