Annotated Bibliography of Renaissance Dance

This bibliography is the joint effort of many subscribers to the RENDANCE electronic mailing list. It may be copied and freely distributed for no commercial gain. It may not be sold or included in collections to be sold for a profit. A small fee to cover copying costs is permissible.

The compiler claims no responsibility for the correctness or usefulness of any of the information contained in this bibliography, and shall not be liable for damages arising from the use or misuse of the material contained herein.

Since the original edition, a couple of on-line editions have appeared. This copy was compiled from one produced by Andrew Draskoy, using a web based bibliography package that he wrote. Additional code to convert the database to this format was written by myself. Some transcription errors may have occurred in the conversion – notably I had some difficulties converting some of the international characters used (e.g: é, ç, ü, etc) into the format used by OpenOffice, and so I apologise for any errors that were introduced in this stage.

Hopefully Andrew's on-line edition will be released for public usage shortly but at the moment it only exists on a private server.
