Physical description

The collection consists of 149 books about the history of Spanish, Latin, and South American dance.

Collection features rare scholarly texts printed in South America, such as a manual of native Argentinian dances, Manual de danzas nativas (Buenos Aires: Escolar, 1954); a work described as "one of the finest books on this subject to come out of Mexico", Danzas de los Concheros en San Miguel de Allende (Mexico: El Colegio de Mexico, 1941); and several general works, including Mexican Dances (Mexico City: Riveroll Art Gallery, 1947) and Bailes Tradicionales Argentino: historia, origen, musica, poesia, coreografia (Buenos Aires: Korn, 1953).

The Spanish antecedents of Latin and South American dance are also well-represented in the collection, and include Le Mer's Spanish Dancing (New York: Barnes, 1948), Las Fiestas populares Barcelonesas (Barcelona: Dalmau, 1944), and Matos' Danzas populares de Espana (Madrid: FET y de las Jons, 1957).
