Description
By Thoinot Arbeau, translated by Mary Stewart Evans.First published in 1589, this classic treatise remains today the most detailed and valuable, as well as delightful, documents we possess on 16th-century dances and dance music. It is written in the form of a dialogue in which Thoinot Arbeau (an anagram: the author's real name was Jehan Tabourot) instructs the young Capriol in the art of "ballroom" dancing.The book includes 47 dance tunes with 16th-century barring and notation. Fourteen of the most interesting and important dances described; and tabulated in the text have been transcribed into Labanotation, simplifying study and performance of these characteristic examples.266 pages.CONTENTS:Editor's IntroductionPreface to the First EditionBibliography to the First EditionOriginal Title PageOriginal Publisher's NoteOrchesography: A Treatise in the Form of a DialogueOriginal Certificate of CopyrightTranslator's NotesEditor's Notes to this EditionBibliography to this EditionIntroduction to the LabanotationLabanotationIndex
