Images from Arbeau (1589) [inline]

[ The US Library of Congress has an online facsimile of all of Arbeau's Orchesography. There is also an online facsimile.]

These images come from what I believe are facsimile reproductions from Arbeau reprinted in the Dover edition of Arbeau. They were scanned in black and white at 150 dots per inch.
