The dust jacket to the facsimile will convey several examples in color with a color frontispiece, while the book itself is in black and white.Included among the more than thirty ballroom and theater dances are examples of the shauntreuse, allemande, hornpipe, quadrille, and waltz. There are also rare dances with descriptive titles such as Pas Seul , Pas Deux , Pas Trois d Eggville , Russian Dance , Vestris Gavotte , and Cossack Dance .The importance of the manuscript to both musicians and dancers cannot be overestimated because it includes the earliest known full-length choreographed waltz for two that, through its intricate arm positions, shows the influence of the eighteenth-century contredanse allemande.

Synopsis :

This facsimile edition is of a hitherto unpublished manuscript, a beautiful workbook of impeccable penmanship by an early nineteenth-century dancing master. The title page reads "Dance Book T B. 1826".

The author uses colors in diagrams that depict the figures, and the dancers ranging in number from one to twelve. The dust jacket to the facsimile will convey several examples in color with a color frontispiece, while the book itself is in black and white.

Included among the more than thirty ballroom and theater dances are examples of the shauntreuse, allemande, hornpipe, quadrille, and waltz. There are also rare dances with descriptive titles such as "Pas Seul", "Pas Deux", "Pas Trois d'Eggville", "Russian Dance", "Vestris Gavotte", and "Cossack Dance".

The importance of the manuscript to both musicians and dancers cannot be overestimated because it includes the earliest known full-length choreographed waltz for two that, through its intricate arm positions, shows the influence of the eighteenth-century contredanse allemande.
