About this Item

Modern archival reprint of original edition, no other publication date marked. 96 pages. Paper / Soft cover reprint edition in very good or better condition, slight wear to edges. Overall good copy of this scarce title. Excellent read. A good book to enjoy and keep on hand. Or would make a great gift for the fan / reader in your life. Summary: This manual was reissued in 1858 under the title Hillgrove's scholars' companion and ball-room guide, and formed the basis for a similar publication, A complete practical guide to the art of dancing, published in 1863. Typical of many nineteenth-century dance manuals, little of the text originated from the pen of New York dancing master Thomas Hillgrove. Instead, much is borrowed from previously published manuals. The scholars' companion gives information on dress, introductions, etiquette and deportment and describes the most popular ballroom dances of the day ; quadrille, waltz, polka, schottisch, polka redowa, polka mazurka, gorlitza, and redowa. Noticeably missing from Hillgrove's manual is any reference to the popular group dance known as the cotillon or German. Full title page read: THE SCHOLARS COMPANION AND BALL-ROOM VIDE MECUM, COMPRISING : A DESCRIPTION OF ALL THE PRINCIPAL DANCES, AS THEY ARE NOW PRACTICED IN NEW YORK : AND IN WHICH THE METHOD OF DANCING THEM IS FULLY EXPLAINED ; AND ALSO OTHER POPULAR DANCES NOW IN VOGUE AMONG THE ; HAUT TON ; OF EUROPE : WITH HINTS AND INSTRUCTIONS RESPECTING TOILET, DEPORTMENT, &c. &c. : The whole forming not only a complete guide to the modern Ball Room but also rendering the tyro perfectly ; au fait ; with the etiquette of public and private assemblies.
