I have started to read it, and it is in essence a sermon condeming the sinful nature of dance - there is a great deal of such literature in this era. I have a fascinating work on my bookshelf that focuses on dance in germany in the 15th c. and 16th c. and probably provides th enmost detaield information we have available about dance in that era - which is to say, not much about chreography or footwork, but a lot about the setting in which it was danced, and what people wore, etc.

Will report more as soon as I get further!

If this isn't an early typesetting of the Nurnberg manuscript, this could
e a primary source unexamined by dance historians. Hunting down a German
ournal from the nineteenth century is a task beyond me, but someone
hould be able to do it. I hope someone can locate this source.
I found the source online. It's in German and Latin:
Anyone care to take a stab at what this is?
