- Book. print | 60 p. 18 cm. | Available also through the Library of Congress Web site as facsimile page images and full text. (Additional Physical Form). Print (Form). Electronic Resource (Form). Remote (Form). A pole about ten feet in height is inserted in a box filled with each to give the foundation weight and stability. To the top of the pole six (or eight) ribbons of different colors are fastened, each being about four yards long, with a loop at the lower end. Three couples (or, if eight ribbons, four couples) form a circle around the pole, each gentleman having his partner on his right hand. Each takes a ribbon, holding the loop, the gentleman in his right hand, and the lady in her left, and all face partners. At a signal they all form the Grand Chain without touching hands, the ladies going to the left, and the gentlemen to the right, each gentleman first passing inside his partner, then outside the next lady, and so on, until the ribbons are braided upon the pole. At a signal, when each gentleman faces his original partner, all turn half-round, changing the ribbons to the outer hand, and reverse the movement, unwinding the ribbons. Afterwards all waltz.
