Don't know if this message belongs here, if not Sorry, but I was interested and thought you will be too.
I received a message announcing the openning of a new library collection at the Library of Congress (Dance Instruction Manuals (1490-1920)). I was browsing it and found the following item:
The dancing master. Directions for dancing country dances, with the tunes to eac dance for the treble-violin.... printed for Playford 1698.
Unfortunately there is no text format for this book but they have a page viewer and the photos are cute.
If someone is interested here is the URL: (in case the link doesn't work;
