1784.013: Orders for a Dancing School.

Published: 1784

Full Title: Orders for a Dancing School … May 1784.

Author: Walker, Benjamin.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 45 cm. x 28 cm. (broadside, printed in three columns).


Sheet lacks printer credit; as this was issued during May 1784 Assembly, likely a Richmond imprint; however, issuing press remains undetermined, though apparently not issued from that of Dunlap & Hayes, which was overwhelmed by work ordered by the sitting Assembly. Signed "Benjamin Walker, dancing master," imprint was probably published to help organize the balls attending the Assembly meeting; text consists of eight numbered rules of order, followed by twenty-six numbered dance descriptions; text concludes with a recommendation of Walker by Tscharner de Graffenried (1722-94) of Lunenburg County. Copies held by several libraries, but title was not filmed by Early American Imprints Series.
