Thank You! This is a marvelous article!

Thanks!
I've got some questions:
Do you know the origin of the term "pas de Basque"?
Do you have copies of works that you cite? I'm interested in a manuscript, Saltator and (from your other post) Ecossoise instructor. I had asked in my library - they told me that it is very difficult to obtain old books via MBA=(

About the description of the step - I found a very interesting description in German book by Eduard Helme (1829). I have a scan of this book and can send it to you. Also this step is very similar to one of mazurka steps - it has different names but occurs early in the century.
