This was the first manual to be published in France,here in the version translated into English by the English dancer, dancing master and writer John Essex. The manual describes, using Feuillet's own dance notation system, motions for the feet and arms, how the dance corresponds to the music, and rules for performance. Additionally, floor plans and music for ten dances are given. Feuillet also suggests appropriate steps. Performed as a series of figures by a column of men facing a column of women, the English country dance was a popular ballroom dance during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
