[SCA-Dance] How do we know Playford is largely proper?

Since the book was typeset, "erase" isn't the operative word here. It is completely plausible that whatever printer's devil actually set the type wasn't consistent about the symbols. It is much harder to proofread symbols (and musical notes) than words, and goodness knows, they weren't consistent about the spelling either. It would be worth checking whether the direction of the symbols changes from edition to edition.

[SNIP] perhaps Playford just copied the diagram from
Hearts Ease for Argeers? Or he could've noticed that he made a mistake,
realized he couldn't erase it, and didn't feel like re-writing it.

Yay! Dancing!
