Thomas Wilson Collections

His An analysis of country dancing, published in two versions, in 1808 and again in 1811, utilized text, tables, and diagrams to explain the dance figures. The complete system of English country dancing, originally published in 1808 was an expanded version of An analysis of country dancing. In his last work on the subject, The treasures of terpsichore, Wilson lamented that English country dancing would “be perverted into a chaos of riot and confusion.”
