You can go to http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/dance.html, where you'll
find that there's a transcription of the French (the better to search
for other uses of words), the LOC facsimile you mention, and a little
webpage with just the woodcuts.

And if you're wondering about a French word, you can look them up
in Cotgrave's 1611 dictionary at:

p.s. How come I didn't make a Music & Dance section to my Cotgrave
proverbs page ?! What was I thinking?
