A GentlemanThe laws of etiquette; or, Short rules and reflections for conduct in society. By a gentleman1836EHLSjE#242 Philadelphia, Carey, Lea, and Blanchard, 1836. In a rapidly growing consumer market for etiquette manuals during the nineteenth century, this is an example of a manual that attempts to reinforce the authority of its contents by suggesting legal foundations in its title as well as the qualifications of its author, in this case "A Gentleman." The straightforward chapters include "Good Breeding," "Dress," "Balls," and "Funerals." Reissued throughout the 1840s, much of the manual is a paraphrasing to earlier texts. 172 p 14 cm;LOC: BJ1852.L28

Adams, Revels Alcorn (1869-)The social dance, by Dr. R. A. Adams1921ELrA#017 Kansas City, Kan., The author, c1921. This antidance treatise is divided into four parts. The first part discusses the physical effects of the dance and the author concludes that habitual dancers are sick more often and women are more prone to "female weaknesses." The second section focuses on the dangers of dance on the mind and concludes that many girls fail in school because they dance too much. In the Third section, the author argues that dance is immoral and "fires the passions of young women." The concluding section is devoted to detailing passages in the Scriptures that the author interprets as supporting his arguments. 32 p. 20 cm;LOC: GV1741.A3

Arbeau, Thoinot (1519-1595)Orchesographie. Et traicte en forme de dialogue, par lequel toutes personnes peuvent facilement apprendre & practiquer l'honneste exercice des dances. Par Thoinot Arbeau demeurant à Lengres1589FLPrBM#219 Lengres, Imprimé par Iehan des Preyz, 1589. Written by a French cleric, Jehan Tabourot, in the form of a dialogue between a dancing master and his student and originally published in 1588, this manual is an important tool in the understanding of late sixteenth-century French social dance. The manual provides critical information on social ballroom behavior and on the interaction of musicians and dancers. The book's usefulness is also enhanced by a notation system that correlates the music to the dance steps. Orchesographie discusses a full spectrum of late Renaissance dance including the galliard, pavane, branle, volta, morisque, gavotte, allemande, and courante. 104 p 21 cm. Also transl, Cyril W.

Bacquoy-Guédon, AlexisMéthode pour exercer l'oreille a la mesure, dans l'art de la danse. Par M. Bacquoy-Guédon1785FLTpB#184 Amsterdam, Et se trouve á Paris, chez Valade 1785. In part one of this treatise, Bacquoy-Guédon (fl. 1780) presents, a short history of dance as well as arguments in favor of dancing. The focus of this section is devoted to performance of contredanses and minuets. Part two contains eight-bar triple-meter airs for minuets and eight-bar duple-meter airs for contredanses, all composed for a single treble instrument. Additional music is included for a variant of the contredanse called the contredanse allemande (in triple-meter); a marche, and two rigaudons. The treatise concludes with a diagram of figures and music for the minuet. 56 p 21 cm. Also reprint 1972, Geneva Minkoff.;LOC: GV1751.B15

Essentially a history of Greek, Roman, and early religious dance, and French court dance, the text is drawn from numerous writers, including Mme. Elise Voiart, Joseph Juste Scaliger, Claude François Ménestrier, Louis de Cahusac, Diderot, and Jean-Georges Noverre. The first part of this book comprises seven letters written by Baron during 1821 and 1822.

Translated under the author's immediate inspection by R. Barton1830ELPrBM#251 London, E. Bull, 1830. This is one of several books written by Italian dancer, choreographer, and writer Blasis (1795-1878). It covers the history and theory of dance, pantomime, the composition of ballets, and contains a section devoted to social dances entitled "private dancing." Although much of the discussion on technique is identical to Blasis'S earlier treatise, Traité élémentaire théorique et pratique de l'art de la danse (1820), the manual is a comprehensive survey of ballet during the early nineteenth-century. 548 p 23 cm.

Although attributed to Italian dancer, choreographer, and writer Carlo Blasis, this manual contains an abridgement of Blasis's writing on the subject of social dance as published in The Code of Terpsichore (1830). The manual's discussion of specific dances is augmented by M. Lemaitre and includes quadrilles, the waltz, polka, schottisch, polka-mazurka, redowa and cotillon. 2 p.l., iv, 111, [1] p. 16 cm;LOC: GV1751.B6 1866

Bogatzky, Carl Heinrich von (1690-1774)Schriftsmässige beantwortung der frage: Was von dem weltüblichen tanzen und spielen zu halten sey und ob es nicht mit zur christlichen freyheit gehöre? als ein anhang zu den betrachtungen von der freyheit der gläubigen vom gesetz auf verlangen entworfen und in druck gegeben von Carl Heinrich von Bogatzky1750GLA#022 Halle, In verlag des Wäysenhauses, 1750. This manual is an early German example of the literature against the practice of dancing. In this case, Bogatzky (1690-1774) compares gambling with dancing, and asks the reader to consider these practices in the context of Scripture, especially the Ten Commandments. 192 p. 18 cm.;LOC: GV1590.B7
Boiseul, JeanTraité contre les danses. Par Jean Boiseul1606FLA#023 La Rochelle, Les heritiers de Hierosme Havltin, 1606. An early example of an antidance treatise, this manual provides a foundation for arguments that continued to the end of the nineteenth century--that dancing is a sin against God. Much of Boiseul's argument is based on biblical examples (chapters and verses are noted in the margins of each page). While acknowledging that dance is mentioned in the Bible, the author is quick to point out that the dances were "joyous and spontaneous" and very different from the seventeenth-century social dances of his day. The courante, branle, and galliard come under specific attack. Additionally, Boiseul makes particularly strong arguments against the dances of non-Christian "savages." 50 p. 16 cm.;LOC: GV1740.B7

Por Natal Jacome Bonem1767PLB#024 Coimbra, Na Officina dos irmaós Ginhoens, 1767. Portuguese dancing master Bonem's manual borrows from the work of contemporary French sources, including dancing masters Guillaume-Louis Pecour and Pierre Rameau. The manual's fourteen chapters focus on dance in the court of Louis XIV and include discussion on feet positions, bows appropriate for various occasions, and the steps and arm positions for the minuet. 6 p l, 3-138 p, 3 l. 16 cm;LOC: GV1590.B73

Bottallo, Barthélemy GGuide du bon danseur, par le professeur B.-G. Bottallo1912FLB#236 Paris Imp. Jouve & cie 1912. This manual contains directions for a dances that were popular during at the end of the nineteenth century including the Berline, Badoise polka, and les patineurs. Botallo also includes directions for several specialty dances such as "La Marocaine," and "Danse des Tambourins." The author includes many quadrille and cotillon figures, although neither dance was often performed in the ballroom by 1912. Acknowledging that other dances were more popular, the author includes three figures for a Tango-Argentine. 187 p 16 cm.;LOC: GV1593.B6

Bourgeois, EdmondTraité pratique et théorique de la danse, par Edmond Bourgeois1909FLB#235 Paris, Garnier frères 1909. As was common practice during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, much of this text was borrowed from other writers. The author begins with a general history of dance and proceeds with an explanation of terms found in dance such as les grands battements and ronds de jambes. The manual contains directions for many Renaissance and Baroque dances including La Pavane, and, although the author quotes from Thoinot Arbeau's Orchesographie of 1588, the directions for performance are strictly a nineteenth-century interpretation. Bourgeois's manual also covers nineteenth-century social dances and he provides the history and directions for dances such as the waltz, polka, mazurka, and quadrille. 466 p 20 cm.;LOC: GV1593.B65
Bowen, Louise W. de K.The public dance halls of Chicago1917ELA#025 [Chicago] The Juvenile Protective Association of Chicago, 1917. This is a revised edition of a work based on an investigation done in 1910 regarding the conditions of public dance halls in Chicago. Bowen's complaints included the late hours, too much liquor, and the general behavior of men noting, "... men wear their hats; they all smoke and expectorate freely." She also suggests the waiters and other employees provide information on the location of "disreputable lodging houses," and delivers condemnation against masquerade and fancy dress balls because many women were found "attending in male attire." 13 p. 23 cm.;LOC: GV1623.B7

The author notes, with some disdain, that the waltz was introduced into France "par les impures du Directoire" (p. 8). The polka also receives criticism. 6 p. 16 cm.;LOC: GV1649.B75 1863

Brookes, James Hall (1830-1897)May Christians dance? By Jas. H. Brookes1869ELA#028 St. Louis, J. W. McIntyre, 1869. This is a typical example of the antidance literature that was published during the nineteenth century. Although Brookes provides a weak defense of dancing, his final conclusion is that the large assemblies, indelicate dressing, "unwarrantable freedom of intercourse between the sexes," as well as uncontrolled excitement, leads to a thorough worldliness and, ultimately, to the forgetfulness of God. The manual was reissued in the 1890s under the title The modern dance. 143 p. 16 cm;LOC: GV1741.B8

It begins with a short discussion on the utility of dancing followed by a section devoted to etiquette of the ballroom and how to give balls. Descriptions of dances in this manual include quadrilles, waltz, polka, polka redowa, schottisch, polka mazurka, varsovienne, and the waltz in 5/4. The book concludes with eighty-seven cotillon figures and eight pages of ballroom dance music. 2 p l, 3-94, 10 p 19 cm;LOC: GV1751.B84

Like many other nineteenth-century dance manuals, much of the material in The Ball-room monitor is not original but is borrowed from previously published sources. The manual, which would fit into a pocket, contains information on quadrilles (called cotillions by Brooks), waltz, polka, redowa, and schottisch. Additionally, the manual contains numerous variety quadrilles--polka quadrilles, schottisch quadrilles, Polaca quadrilles, Varsoviana quadrilles, and a mazurka quadrille. 63 p 13 cm;LOC: GV1751.B85

[c1884] Assembled by Professor Bonstein (pseudonym for Charles A. White) from the writings of others, this manual begins with advice to parents regarding children. "Send them to dancing school and save many a doctor's bill." The etiquette section in this manual is reduced to a section simply called "hints."

Many manuals compiled from previously published sources under a variety of author names were aimed at an ever-expanding group of people who could not avail themselves of a dance master. This work strives to instruct in a plain and explicit manner, making no attempts to discuss dance "technically and methodically." The manual is structured as a series of lessons. For example, lesson one of eleven on the waltz requires the reader to begin by being "seated upright in a chair." The manual also covers the polka, glide polka, heel and toe polka, schottisch, quadrilles and the German (also known as the cotillon). 123 p 20 cm;LOC: GV1751.B87

Burette, Pierre Jean (1665-1747)Prima, e seconda memoria per servire alla istoria del ballo degli antichi, del signor Burette. N.° II1746ILB#032 Venezia, 1746. In this history of dance, Burette (1665-1747) presents an extensive discussion on Greek and Roman dance, basing his information on literary references such as the Iliad and authors such as Lucian. Included in the discussion are tragic and serious ballet, satire, and pantomime. While this text illuminates the importance of Greek and Roman influence on the arts of the mid-eighteenth century, modern dance scholars will find many interpretive and factual errors. 1 p.l., 33-44, 33-42 p. 25 x 19 cm;LOC: GV1607.B8

Cahusac, Louis deLa danse ancienne et moderne, ou Traité historique de la danse. Par m. de Cahusac1754FLB#034 A La Haye [i.e. Paris] chez J. Neaulme, 1754. This three-volume work on dance history describes dance from its origins through the court fêtes of Louis XIV. Volume one stresses the importance of studying the theories of all the arts and covers the dance history of numerous ancient civilizations including Greek, Roman, Turkish, and Egyptian. Volume two describes the renaissance of the arts and the origins of ballet to 1610. Volume three focuses on dance in the court of Henri IV and the establishment of French opera. Cahusac borrows heavily from other writers, especially Philippe Quinault. Although by twentieth-century scholastic standards, Cahusac's interpretations may be problematic, the work formed the foundation for much of the writing on dance history until the twentieth century. 3 v 14 cm;LOC: GV1600.C2

Folds, 1810. The first section of this manual is devoted to a history of dance with emphasis on Greek and Roman practices. However, much of this section is borrowed liberally from the writings of late eighteenth-century authors, and, while it illuminates the importance of Greek and Roman influence on the arts of the era, modern dance scholars will find many interpretive and factual errors. Book two is a discourse on what Cassidy considers the practical aspects of dance: steps, music, and deportment. There is also discussion on the minuet, reel, and country dances. 6 p l, 88 p front, 3 col pl 18 cm;LOC: GV1590.C3

This manual is an extensive history of dance that incorporates many countries, cultures, and periods including Chinese, Hindu, Egyptian, Greek, ancient Gaul, European Renaissance, and Baroque. The manual also covers popular culture, peasant dance, and "foreign dance." The perspective of this manual is clearly nineteenth century, with little emphasis on historical fact. The point of view is clearly western, and this is evident in the music examples that accompany almost every country or culture's entry--all have been subjected to western notation and are arranged in late nineteenth-century grand musical style. Additionally, the text includes numerous illustrations and, no matter the country or culture, the figures are physically shaped to look like late nineteenth-century western ladies and gentlemen. ix, 418 p front, illus, 28 cm;LOC: GV1601.C6

Small enough to fit into a pocket, the manual begins with a discussion of the polka and includes directions for various ballroom dances including the mazurka quadrille, polka mazurka, schottisch, "La Cellarius," gorlitza, various quadrilles and other group dances such as "La Tempète" and "Sir Roger de Coverley." The manual concludes with directions for the "Menuet de la Cour." An expanded version of this work was published in 1873. xii, 99, 1 p front illus 13 cm;LOC: GV1751.C85

Crane, Jonathan Townley (1819-1880)An essay on dancing. By J. Townley Crane1849ELRA#214 New York, Carlton & Porter 1849. This book started out as a discourse to the members of the author's congregation and was expanded into this more comprehensive essay. It remarks on the religious dances of the Hebrews and those of the heathen, military or war, and pleasure and amusement. He considers apologies for the pleasure and amusement dances, as well as objections to both, and he concludes with an appeal to Christians not to dance. 132 p. 16 cm.;LOC: GV1741.C7

This manual is designed as a self-teacher for those who cannot or, according to the author, are unwilling to attend dance classes. Additionally, Cree declares the most popular dances to be the Lame Duck Valse, valse, one step, foxtrot, and lancers. Although he includes instructions for a Three Step or Straight Jazz, and a Tango Valse, the manual does not reflect dances that were being performed during the late teens. 2 p l, 88 p 20 cm;LOC: GV1751.C89

In this vast history of dance, Czerwinski discusses the origins of dance with Greek and Roman examples and continues with a description of the dances in many countries including Spain, France, Germany, England, Scotland, Sweden, Holland, Poland, Japan and Turkey. Specific dances include the galliard, galop, menuet, quadrille, waltz, and tarantella. Although the scholarship is flawed by contemporary standards, the work is part of a large body of literature that influenced the writing of dance history through the end of the nineteenth century. viii, 264 p 18 cm;LOC: GV1601.C8

In this manual, Davis takes a novel approach in preaching his anti dance position, which he calls "The Trial of Social Dance ... The only King and Potentate, Jesus Christ vs. Social Dance." The jury for this "trial" is composed of "The Public Conscience." "Witnesses" include Mr. Worldly Fun, Mr. Roman Catholic Bishop, Mr. Round Dancing Master, and Miss Chicago Barmaid. The trial proceeds and, in Davis's summary, the jury declares the defendant, social dance, guilty. 46 p 23 cm;LOC: GV1741.D26

De Garmo, William BThe dance of society: a critical analysis of all the standard quadrilles, round dances, 102 figures of le cotillon (the german), &c., including dissertations upon time and its accentuation, carriage, style, and other relative matter. By Wm. B. De Garmo ... Illustrations by Theodore Wèust, New York1875ELPRTjB#181 New York, W. A. Pond & co. 1875. This manual was originally published in 1864 with subsequent editions in 1865, 1866, and 1868 when the author noted that many of the dances were no longer fashionable. Typical of other late nineteenth-century manuals, much of the text is borrowed from other writers. The manual provides a brief section on etiquette and describes the popular ballroom dances of the era--quadrille, polka, redowa, polka mazurka, schottisch, galop, and rules and figures for 102 cotillon figures. Reflecting a growing interest in the dances of the past, De Garmo provides directions and music for the "Menuet de la Cour." The manual was reissued in 1884. 155 p 21 cm.;LOC: GV1751.D31 1875

Like many other nineteenth-century dance manuals, much of the material in The prompter comes from previously published materials. The treatise opens with a brief discussion of etiquette and continues with figures for quadrilles. Additionally, the manual discusses "Le quadrille Français," De Garmo's terminology for English country dances, and gives eighty-seven figures for the cotillon, a popular group dance that takes the form of a series of party games. 78 p 14 cm;LOC: GV1751.D325

Desrat begins his work with a description of dances that were still in vogue at the turn of the century: Boston waltz, cake walk, Berlin, pas de patineurs, and Washington-Post (a two step). A history of ancient dance follows and the discussion begins with Greek and Roman origins; this is followed by a discussion of "modern dances," which Desrat describes as pavane, gavotte, branle, and the minuet.

This antidance work argues that dance is injurious to the health, is usually accompanied by drinking alcohol, and forces young men to stray from serious reflection and prayer. Typical of this genre of literature, the book contains testimonials from numerous denominations including the Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church, Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church, and the Methodist Church. 15 p 23 cm;LOC: GV1741.D75

This book consists of large sections taken from his earlier book, From the ballroom to hell.

Ferrero, Edward (1831-1899)The art of dancing, historically illustrated. To which is added a few hints on etiquette; also, the figures, music, and necessary instruction for the performance of the most modern and approved dances ... By Edward Ferrero1859ELPRTjBM#067 New York, The author, 1859. Although much of the material in this manual is borrowed from the dance writings of Charles Durang, it remains an important source for the study of mid-nineteenth-century ballroom dance. Unlike other contemporary writers, Ferrero devotes more than eighty pages to the origins of dance and a history of European and Native American dance. The remaining part of the manual concerns ballroom etiquette and descriptions of numerous dances including the quadrille, waltz, polka, schottisch, varsovienne, polka mazurka, and galop. Ferrero gives directions for more than eighty figures of the cotillon, a group dance performed as a series of party games. Some of the figures include "The scarf," "The glass of wine," "The sea during a storm," "The four chairs," and "The rounds thwarted."

Large portions of this manual on the history of dance are borrowed from other sources including Mme Élise Voiart's Essai sur la danse. The author begins with an examination of Greek and Roman dance and continues through the court dances of Louis XII and Catherine de Médicis. The discussion on French theatrical dance includes mention of two well-known ballerinas, Fanny Elssler and Fanny Cerrito. A wide range of Renaissance and Baroque dances is discussed including the gavotte, pavane, sarabande, chaconne, and gailliard. This manual is typical of other similar publications in that substantial discussion is given to dance practices in foreign lands including China, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Hungary, and Russia. 128 p 16 cm;LOC: GV1601.F43

Ham, Mordecai FranklinThe modern dance; a historical and analytical treatment of the subject; religious, social, hygienic, industrial aspects as viewed by the pulpit, the press, medical authorities, municipal authorities, social workers, etc., by M. F. Ham ... illustrations by Will N. Noonan.1916ELA#207 San Antonio, The San Antonio printing company, 1916. This is the second published edition of a sermon Ham delivered as part of an evangelistic campaign in Palestine, Texas in 1914 and his arguments are typical of this genre of antidance literature. Although Ham and other writers recognize dance in the Bible, it was interpreted as only danced by women, never in closed rooms, and never at night. Also typical of this type of manual, the author includes a list of other denunciations from Catholic, Jewish, Episcopal church leaders. And, in an unusual addition, Ham includes an attack against social dance written by famed ballerina, Lydia Lupokova. Ham, in his colorful language, notes he has published this warning to "save many young men and women from one of Satan's most fetching appeals to the lust of the flesh." 60 p 23 cm.;LOC: GV1741.H3

Heckman, George C (1825-1902)Dancing as a Christian amusement. By the Rev. George C. Heckmann1879ELA#092 Philadelphia, Presbyterian board of publication 1879. This antidance treatise presents three of the central arguments for this genre of literature. First, dance is injurious to the health; second, dance is a waste of time and money. The third argument recognizes that dance is mentioned in the Bible; however, the author claims that only women danced and solely for religious purposes. 36 p. 16 cm.;LOC: GV1741.H44

Hillgrove, ThomasArt of Dancing or Hillgrove Ballroom Guide and Practical Dancer1869ETBNY, Dick & Fitzgerald
Hillgrove, ThomasA complete practical guide to the art of dancing. Containing descriptions of all fashionable and approved dances, full directions for calling the figures, the amount of music required; hints on etiquette, the toilet, etc.1863EJLPRBE#293 New York, Dick & Fitzgerald 1863. New York dancing master Hillgrove acknowledges that he has "availed himself of all the books from which he might elicit any valuable information." Indeed, very little of the manual is original. Divided into six parts, Hillgrove discusses the benefits of dance, dress, deportment and etiquette in the ballroom and the supper room. The second part focuses on bows and courtesies, positions of the feet, and provides exercises for the feet and legs. The third and fourth parts discuss the quadrille and provide many figures; the fifth part is devoted to round dances such as the waltz, polka, schottisch, galop, and polka mazurka. The last section focuses on more quadrille figures and other group dances such as the "Virginia Reel," "Money Musk," and College Hornpipe. 237 p 17 cm;LOC: GV1751.H63
Hillgrove, ThomasThe scholars' companion and ballroom vade mecum ... With hints and instructions respecting toilet, deportment,&c., &c. ... By Thomas Hillgrove1857ELRpB#094 New York, T. R. Turnbull & co., printers, 1857. This manual was reissued in 1858 under the title Hillgrove's scholars' companion and ball-room guide ..., and formed the basis for a similar publication, A complete practical guide to the art of dancing, published in 1863. Typical of many nineteenth-century dance manuals, little of the text originated from the pen of New York dancing master Thomas Hillgrove. Instead, much is borrowed from previously published manuals. The scholars' companion gives information on dress, introductions, etiquette and deportment and describes the most popular ballroom dances of the day--quadrille, waltz, polka, schottisch, polka redowa, polka mazurka, gorlitza, and redowa. Noticeably missing from Hillgroves's manual is any reference to the popular group dance known as the cotillon or German. 96 p 15 cm;LOC: GV1751.H65 1857

Holt, ArdernHow to dance the revived ancient dances. By Ardern Holt1907ELBM#200 London, H. Cox, 1907. Holt begins his discussion with a history of "chorography" and the work of famed eighteenth-century dancing masters and choreographers Guillaume-Louis Pecour, Pierre Beauchamps, and Raoul-Auger Feuillet. Several pages of dances written in the dance notation system devised by Feuillet are included. Holt's "reconstruction" of the pavan includes the appropriate music from Thoinot Arbeau's 1588 manual, Orchesographie. For decades, the inclusion of the notation and music was deceiving to many unsuspecting people who used Holt's manual to reconstruct dances for the Renaissance and Baroque. Holt's interpretations bear no resemblance to the originals; however, they do clearly illuminate the romanticized aura that began to surround such dances as the minuet during the nineteenth century. Line drawings and photographs enhance Holt's manual. 158 p 19 cm;LOC: GV1753.H7

Hubbert, James MonroeDancers and dancing; a calm and rational view of the dancing question, by Pastor J. M. Hubbert1901ELA#104 Nashville, Tenn., Cumberland Presbyterian publishing house c1901. At first glance, Hubbert appears to be presenting both pro and con agruments regarding the suitability of dancing. However, the discussion is weighted toward the common discourse found in this genre of antidance literature. Hubbert argues that although dance was practiced in biblical times, it was performed by and for women. Additionally, he concludes that dance is bad for the health and a waste of time and money. 44 p 19 cm;LOC: GV1741.H87

Ide, Jacob (1785-1880)The nature and tendency of balls, seriously and candidly considered; in two sermons1819ELB#105 Dedham : Printed by M. & W.H. Mann, 1819. This book consists of two sermons delivered by Jacob Ide (1785-1880), pastor of the Second Church in Medway during December 1818. In these sermons, the pastor declares that balls are too expensive, "excite very ardent feeling," and lead to an "inordinate love of company" resulting in idleness. The second sermon is devoted to a common theme in nineteenth-century antidance literature, that dancing and attending balls are contrary to Scripture. Ide's sermons were reprinted in 1859. 50 p 21 cm;LOC: GV1741.I2 1818

Jones, John Griffing (1804-1888)An appeal to all Christians, especially the members of the Methodist Episcopal church, against the practice of social dancing. By Rev. John G. Jones1867ELA#107 Saint Louis, P. M. Pinckard, 1867. This tract against the practice of social dancing is based on a series of articles written by Jones in 1852. Jones notes alarm because dance is gaining favor with the public. Two of his arguments are common in this genre of literature. First, he claims that dance is an unhealthy exercise. Second, he claims that dance in the Bible is exempted from criticism because it was interpreted as being performed only by women. Jones argues that dance is the natural result of "fervent piety, and of a heart overflowing with gratitude." 66 p 15 cm;LOC: GV1741.J6

By Francis Mason1854ELB#194 London, Sharp & Hale, 1854. In this book dancing master Mason attempts to make a case for the advantages of dancing and traces the development of dance from ancient times. As part of his argument, Mason often distinguishes between the dance of civilized and uncivilized peoples. His bias is clear in the following: "Man in a civilized state generally turns the feet outwards, as in an uncivilized state they are invariably turned inwards" (p. 11). 46 p 16 cm;LOC: GV1599.M3

Meyen, HenryThe ball room guide, being a compendium of the theory, practice, and etiquette of dancing, embracing the newest quadrilles, polkas ... also, the Meyen quadrille, as taught by H. Meyen1852ELrB#187 New-York, E. & J. Magnus, 1852. This manual begins, as do others of the period, with a general introduction that covers the necessity of dancing and a brief history of the dance. Declaring that bodily exercise "drives away sorrow and care," the author asks, "how is it that there are men malicious enough to condemn this innocent pastime?" (p. 12). The manual continues with ten rules to be observed at balls, duties of managers, and seven rules for the German cotillon (a series of dance games). While Meyer gives figures for quadrilles and directions for fourteen German cotillon figures, his descriptions of round dances are vague. For example, in a describing the polks, he notes it "is either danced in a circle...or at variety, eight bars to the right and eight bars to the left..."(pg. 23). 44 p. 14 cm.;LOC: GV1753.M61

Divided into three parts, the first part illuminates the career and students of dancing master Cesare Negri (ca. 1536-ca. 1604; also known as Il Trombone); the second is devoted to the era's most virtuosic dance type, the galliard; and the third section details a wide repertory of additional steps utilized in the treatise's forty-three choreographies.

Palmer, Benjamin Morgan (1818-1902)Social dancing inconsistent with a Christian profession and baptismal vows: a sermon, preached in the Presbyterian church, Columbia, S.C., June 17, 1849, by B. M. Palmer1849ELA#130 Columbia, Printed at the office of the South Carolinian, 1849. Taken from a sermon delivered 17 June 1849, Palmer's book is typical of midnineteenth-century antidance literature. He declares that the seventeen references to dance in the Bible are all performed by one sex, in open fields, and in broad daylight. This, Palmer (1818-1902) concludes, is not the case with balls, in which the sexes dance together, in closed quarters, and at night. The author declares that human nature is "fallen and depraved, and subject to the domination of wicked passions," therefore, attending balls is promiscuous, demoralizing and inconsistent with baptismal vows. 23 p 19 cm;LOC: GV1741.P3

By Francis Peacock1805ELpB#133 Aberdeen, Printed by J. Chalmers & co., 1805. This manual begins with a discussion on the importance of dance for youth and outlines the origins of dance. Although much of the historical and theoretical text is borrowed from other dance writers--notably Giovanni-Andrea Gallini and John Weaver--the manual is important for its description of the Scotch reel and accompanying ten reel steps. Some of the steps include kemshóole (forward step), minor and double kemkóssy (setting steps), lematrást (cross springs), and curatag (turning step). 224 p 23 cm;LOC: GV1601.P35

Penn, W. E.There is no harm in dancing, by W. E. Penn, with an introduction by Rev. J. H. Stribling, D.D.1884ELA#136 St. Louis, Mo., L. E. Kline, 1884. The basic premise in this antidance treatise is typical of this genre of dance literature; namely, dance is bad for the health and is a waste of money. The author utilizes a novel approach and uses trees as metaphors to support his arguments. Some trees are "not comely to look upon, but the fruit very good." Other trees have dangerous fruit and the author concludes that samples of the fruit found on the tree of dancing include "pride, lasciviousness, lying, drunkenness, embezzlement, fornication, cruelty, idolatry, prostitution, abortion, and assassination." The manual was reissued in 1886 as The Upas Tree. 58 p 15 cm.;LOC: GV1741.P4

This antidance treatise was directed at the large German-speaking population that settled in the mid-western section of the United States. Pfefferkorn's two main arguments are common in this genre of literature: dance is a waste of time and money and, additionally, is bad for the health. The author concludes that dance is sinful and dangerous, leading to carnal appetites and immoral thoughts and actions. 66 p. 19 cm.;LOC: GV1741.P52
Phillips, John, RevFamiliar dialogues on dancing, between a minister and a dancer; taken from matter of fact with an appendix containing some extracts from the writings of pious and eminent men against the entertainments of the stage, and other vain amusements ... By John Phillips1798ELA#217 New York, Printed by T. Kirk, 1798. Substantiated by quotations from other writers including Pascall, Prince of Conti, Chief Justice Hale, and Archbishop Tillotson, Phillips declares dance to be a vain and idle amusement. While he acknowledges that many people assume the study of dance teaches good carriage and a "graceful and easy way of moving our limbs," he notes that Quakers, "who hold dancing in abomination," manage to display good carriage without benefit of dance instruction. As with other writers of antidance literature, Phillips notes that, although dance wasprevalent during biblical times, only women participated. 39 p. 21 cm.;LOC: GV1740.P5

Indicating the decade's growing interest in elaborate balls, Radestock suggests one waiter for each two persons.

Reilley, E. B.The Amateur's Vademecum. A practical treatise on the art of dancing1870ELPRTjB#144 Philadelphia, J. Nicholas, printer, 1870. Reilley's work is a typical example of dance manuals published during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Whereas previous manuals often had many pages devoted to etiquette and deportment, Reilly devotes but two paragraphs noting that he was leaving the rest to the "good sense and nature" of his readers. The manual provides an extensive history of dance from the Greeks and Romans to the courts of Italy and France to the dances of aboriginal American Indians. Demonstrating the century's growing interest in physical education, Reilley provides a detailed section on exercise. The manual gives descriptions of the popular ballroom dances of the era--quadrilles, waltz, schottisch, and polka. 231 p 16 x 12 cm.;LOC: GV1751.R36

Rice, Nathan Lewis (1807-1877)A discourse on dancing, delivered in the Central Presbyterian church, Cincinnati. By N. L. Rice1847ELrA#145 Cincinnati, The Presbyterian book depository, and W. H. Moore, 1847. This book is typical of mid-nineteenth century antidance works. While many writers noted that the Bible contains numerous references to dance, Rice (1807-1877) points out that, in a biblical context, dance was utilized as a part of worship, performed exclusively by women dancing with each other. (The dangers of contact between the sexes while dancing were a common theme in antidance literature.) The second point, also common in antidance books, centered on the notion that dancing was bad for the health, especially in women. 24 p. 22 cm.;LOC: GV1741.R5

Rivers, Charles H.A full description of modern dances. By C. H. Rivers1885ELrBE#146 Brooklyn 1885. Unlike earlier manuals that contained detailed information on etiquette, this manual reflects the trend of late nineteenth-century manuals to shorten or eliminate such information. This manual contains only one-third of a page of etiquette. Dances described include the waltz (with reversing steps), polka, schottisch, polka redowa, polka mazurka, galop, quadrilles, contra dances ("Scilian Circle," "Spanish Dance" and "Rustic Reel"). Thirty-seven figures are given for the popular series of party game figures known as the cotillon or German. 63 p 16 x 13 cm;LOC: GV1751.R62

Like many European and North American manuals of the nineteenth century, this Australian version is acknowledged by the publisher to be a compilation of other writer's work. To enhance the book's marketability, the author states that many "who have left the colonies for London, Paris, and other continental cities" have admirably acquitted and distinguished themselves. The book describes quadrilles and waltzes as well as dances popular in the 1840s such as the "Cellarius Waltz." 136 p 14 cm.;LOC: GV1751.R65

Satori, Joseph Aloysius (1843- )Modern dances, by Rt. Rev. Mgr. Don Luigi Satori1910ELRA#208 Collegville, Ind., St. Joseph's printing office, 1910. Like other publications of its kind, the book defends the dances of the Greeks and Romans as well as dances mentioned in the Bible on the grounds that they were performed by segregated sexes. With customary western bias, Sartori notes that when Christianity "supplanted Paganism, it found many objectionable practices and customs which it had to eradicate. One was dancing." The author objects both to waltzing, which he claims to be a violation of the Sixth Commandment, and the quadrille, which is "a malicious preparation to enjoy the mad rush to a close embrace." The manual was also published in German under the title Die modernen Tänze. 61 p 20 cm.;LOC: GV1741.S3

St. Johnston, Thomas Reginald, Sir (1881-1950)A history of dancing. By Reginald St. Johnston1906ELPB#178 London, Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent, & co., 1906. Saint Johnston claims to be filling a gap in the tracing of dance history and confesses he knows of only three books on the subject, those by Gaston Vuillier, Edward Scott, and John Weaver. The work contains much of the sme information found in numerous other historiographies of the era. The author considers the birth of stage dancing to be the Kate Vaughan's "Skirt Dance" and other opinions expressed by Saint Johnston include the erroneous notion that the quadrille was one of the dances that directly followed the minuet. As was common thinking during this era, the author maintains a strict western bias with chapter titles such as "Quaint Dances in Civilized Countries". 197 p 24 cm;LOC: GV1601.S3

The author of this manual declares that "every person should be able to dance ... quadrilles without the aid of a 'caller.'" Unlike other contemporary call books, Strassburg provides the calls as well as a brief description of the figures.

Part one is an extensive treatment of exercises for the improvement of one's deportment. Part two provides lucid descriptions for more than twenty steps appropriate for the performance of the quadrille, a popular ballroom dance performed by four couples who face each other in a square. Additionally, Strathy provides combinations of steps for the most common figures of the quadrille. The manual concludes with directions, given in French and English, for eleven quadrille figures. 98 p 18 cm.;LOC: GV1763.S78

Illustrated by twenty-four copper-plate engravings, by Stewart, Halpin, Hicks and Read1832ELTrB#156 London, Author, 1832. This manual is considered one of the most important discussions regarding the style and steps of early Romantic ballet. A dancer and dancing master, Théleur (née Taylor; fl. c. 1817-c.1844), wrote his manual in the form of a series of thirteen letters that includes a brief history of dance as well as a section devoted to social dance. The book is enhanced by full-page prints, including illustrations of dancers on full pointe. Théleur's dance notation system, the first in the nineteenth century, also helps illuminate theatrical dance practices of the time. 104 p 27 cm.;LOC: GV1787.T37

Thornwell discusses the complexion, appropriate dress, introductions, behavior at parties, rules "on polite, easy, and graceful deportment," hints for conversation including "words, and sayings to be avoided," and concludes with chapters on needle-work and dress-making. Although much of Thornwell's manual was extracted from E.

Translated as "Self-tutor of fashionable social and characteristic dances," this is an important Russian-language manual that describes the role of social dance, the importance of proper bearing, bows, introductions, and etiquette. Many of the same are the same as those performed in the ballrooms of western Europe, such as the waltz, quadrille, polonaise, polka, pas de patinier. Other dances are more interesting--the mazurka, pas de'Espagne, Hongroise, csárdas, and kamarinskaya. The descriptions are enhanced by diagrams and drawings. Some of the dance titles are written in French, the prevailing language of the ballroom. 155 p 22 cm;LOC: GV1753 .T5

Voiart, Élise, Mme. (1786-1866)Essai sur la danse antique et moderne ... Par Mme Élise Voiart1823FLB#160 Paris, Audot, 1823. All of Mme. Voiart's manual is devoted to the history of dance. Quoting heavily from many previously published materials, including a number of travelogues, this book discusses the origins of dance and devotes a chapter each to Greek and Roman dance. The second part of the book discusses transition to what the author terms "modern dance," in this case the court dances of France. In examining the dances of the French Baroque court, Mme. Voiart (1786-1866) refers to a great variety of dances including the courante, minuet, and gavotte as well as dances from at least one hundred years earlier such as the pavane and branle. Demonstrating an interest in non-European dance, the book also discusses dance as practiced in other parts of the world including Norway, Canada, the Sioux of Missouri, and Africa. Although the scholarship, by contemporary standards, is seriously flawed, the book is part of the large body of literature that has influenced the writing of dance history for more than one hundred years. 251 p 18 cm.;LOC: GV1590.V7

In her strong defense of dance and its application to female physical education, Mrs. Webster declares that dancing, as a exercise, "is the very best safeguard against the evils of over mental education." While she approves of calisthenics and various mechanical apparatus-including swings and pulleys and a "prone couch"-she delivers a stinging rebuke regarding the wearing of corsets. 56 p. 22 cm.;LOC: GV1599.W5

Wilkenson, William CleaverThe Dance of Modern Society1869EJLRpA#166 New York, Funk and Wagnalls, Publishers. New York, Oakley, Mason & co., 1869. Unlike many other nineteenth-century antidance writers who base their arguments on Scripture, Wilkinson asks that his readers formulate their opinions on reason, conscience, and common sense. In fact, Wilkinson argues that he is not an enemy of dance and declares it to be perfectly innocent. His argument is against the "modern manner of dancing" that requires expensive clothing and the "massing together of a jostling crowd of mute or merely gibbering animals." Thus, he summarizes, dancing does nothing to "enhance the intellectual improvement of society." 77 p. 18 cm. Also 1884;LOC: GV1741.W68

Zorn is well known for his innovative dance notation system that is utilized in this work. The system is important for its information on the step terminology of mid-nineteenth-century ballet. Through text and notation, the manual covers positions of the feet, preparatory exercises, arm movements, as well as describing many steps. Several quadrille figures are also notated as well as the minuet, gavotte, and numerous waltz, polka, and galop steps.

This manual suggests that anyone can learn to dance without the aid of a teacher and, after providing a short discussion on organizing balls, appropriate dress, and etiquette, the book focuses on the popular ballroom dances of the era--quadrilles, polka, schottisch, polka mazurka, and varsoviana.

The manual opens with discussion on the arrangements for balls, appropriate dress for ladies and gentlemen, and thirteen pages of etiquette.

In fact, like many nineteenth-century dance manuals, the text is heavily borrowed from numerous sources and compiled by a publisher. Its format is common for this type of manual and it begins with a discussion on etiquette followed by description of quadrilles--popular group dances performed by four couples facing in a square.

naThe dance, ancient and modern / translated from the French by Arabella E. Moore.1900ELjB#058 Philadelphia, Pa. : A. Moore, 1900. Translated from French by Arabella E. Moore, this is an example of the growing body of historiographical texts that began to appear in the late 1890s into the turn of the twentieth century. The work borrows heavily from previously published materials for sections on primitive and ancient dances. As with other authors of this era, "modern dances" are considered to be pavane, gavot, rigodon, and minuet. In keeping with a renewed interest in the reconstruction of Renaissance and Baroque dances, the manual includes a chapter, "Revival of Popular Old Dances." A chapter on "contemporary dances" includes polka quadrilles, Boston, mazurka, and cotillon (also known as the German). 32 p 23 cm;LOC: GV1603.D2
naThe dancer's guide and ball-room companion.1874ELB#009 New York, F. M. Reed [c1874] This manual is a compilation of previously published materials. The guide begins with a brief description of the necessary arrangements for a ball, appropriate dress for men and women, and ballroom etiquette. The work continues with dances such as the quadrille, waltz, varsoviana, polka, schottisch, "Cellarius Waltz," and dances for larger groups of dancers--"Spanish Dance," "La Tempete," and "Sir Roger de Coverley." 27 p. 15 cm.;LOC: GV1751.D17

naThe dancing master; or, Directions for dancing country dances, with the tunes to each dance, for the treble-violin. The 10th ed. corrected; with addition of several new dances and tunes never before printed1698ELB#004 [London] Printed by J. Heptinstall, for H. Playford, 1698. Originally published in 1650 under the title of The English dancing master, this work went through numerous editions from 1652 to 1728. Compiled by John Playford (1623-1687), a publisher of music books, the treatise is considered an important work on English country dances, a form of dance where couples perform a series of set patterns. In this tenth edition, Henry Playford notes that he has made corrections and added several new dances and tunes. The work utilizes a rudimentary dance notation and page one of the treatise is devoted to an explanation of the symbols. Part one contains 215 dances; part two has 46 dances and additional music for "A new spanish entry and saraband," as danced by Monsieur L'Abbe. Appropriate music, in the form of a treble line, is provided for each dance. Most of the dances are designated for longways sets of three couples, four couples, or "as many as will." 2 v. in 1. 11 x 20 cm.;LOC: MT950.P68 1698

Trumbull, 1798. The etiquette section of this manual anticipates many nineteenth-century concerns regarding decorum and bodily control and some of the ill manners described include "swinging the arms, and all other awkward gestures" and "leaning on the shoulder, or chair of another person." The manual provides nine figures for the cotillon, a precursor to the quadrille consisting of a series of figures known as changes that were performed alternately with the cotillon figure. The manual also gives the figures for seventy-nine English country dances, a popular group dance performed by a column of men facing a column of women. 24 p. 13 cm.;LOC: GV1590.G4

naImmorality of modern dances, ed. by Beryl and associates1904ELA#149 New York, Everitt and Francis co. 1904. This antidance work is typical of the genre of dance writing that has its roots in published works reaching far back into the Renaissance. Three arguments are raised: (1) although dance is acknowledged to have been practiced during biblical times, it was always performed by and for women solely; (2) dancing is considered bad for the health and, (3) dance is a waste of time. The editors of this manual single out round dances, specifically waltzes, as immoral. To fortify the argument, the book contains testimonials from Catholic and Protestant church representatives. 114 p 18 cm;LOC: GV1741.I3

For example, just as the golden calf represented idolatry, the author argues that pleasure derived from dance is also idolatry, thus breaking the First Commandment.
