About the Edition

This small, pocketsize manual is attributed to American inventor Elias Howe; however, a publisher assembled it. Even though the manual itself is small in size, it manages to pack in a thorough discussion of etiquette of the ballroom and supper room, the differences between public balls and private parties, and how to call quadrilles or cotillons. Descriptions are included for numerous dances including the polka, waltz, schottisch, quadrille, and contra dance.
