This catalogue accompanies the exhibition held at the Grolier Club from January to March 2002. It showcases a selection of books, published before 1801, on the history of European dance, its dancers, and development of dance notation. Most of the books were written by dancing masters, and many have considerable rarity. The catalogue lists 199 items following the arrangement of Rare and Pleasant Books, the larger catalogue from which it derives.
