Woodbury, NJ: American Squares, 1950. Second Edition. The real first printing appears to be scarce!. Signed presentation from the authors on the title page: "To Dougie.

In 1949, square and round dance lessons were started by the couple and they were Chairmen of the First Annual Square and Round Dance Festival held in Tucson in 1949. 8vo., pictorial light-blue wraps; 48 pages. Very Good (minor wear covers; contents clean & tight).
