OCLC cites the earliest edition of this notorious anti-dance treatise as being issued in 1892; this edition, per the copyright page, is just post-1920. "Ex-dancing master" T.A. Faulkner, former Proprietor of the Los Angeles Dancing Academy and ex-President of Dancing Masters' Association of the Pacific Coast, turned his life to the Lord denouncing dance as being "selfish pleasure and sinful indulgence" and linked social dancing to sexual promiscuity as well as associating dance halls with prostitution and white slavery. Faulkner directed even greater vehemence at instruction schools which he likened as kindergartens of brothels: "To close the doors of the brothel close first the doors of the dancing school." Faulkner authored a second booklet "The Lure of the Dance" in 1916 adding more arguments to the immorality of dance. Codice libro della libreria INV-6203

Descrizione libro R.F. Henry, 1894. Paper. Condizione libro: Good. Author was formerly proprietor of the Los Angeles Dancing Academy and ex-president of Dancing Masters' Association of the Pacific Coast. His narrative opens, "You will my dear reader, find very many plain things between the two covers of this little book; things which will, perhaps, shock your modesty and probably disgust you altogether. But if you should find merely reading the facts disgusting, think how much more disgusting is the reality, and how essentail that some should portray the evil to the public in a manner impressive and not to be misunderstood." Heavily foxed. Covers are blemished and chipped around edges. Cover depicts a devil dancing as he leers lasciviously at the image of a virginal maid. 4.5"X6.75". 61 pp. Professional book dealer since 1975. All orders are processed promptly and packaged with the utmost care. Satisfaction guaranteed. Codice libro della libreria 015776
