About this Item
- Quelques mots sur les danses modernes,
- This is a fourth edition of a book that acknowledges other antidance tracts including Boullay's Réforme de las danse des salons; Gustave Louis's Physiologie de l'opinion, and La Chrétienne de nos jours by l'Abbé Bautain. The author notes, with some disdain, that the waltz was introduced into France "par les impures du Directoire" (p. 8). The polka also receives criticism.
