2 Murray, Arthur How To Become A Good Dancer
New York Simon and Schuster 1938 4th Printing Hardcover Very Good 
B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking a dust jacket. Also included is a set of Murray Magic Footprints (unused).

There are a few spots of ground-in dirt to the covers. The text pages are clean and bright. Both front and rear endpapers have noticeable generalized toning. "Murray was inspired by a casual remark made by William Jennings Bryan one evening at the hotel: "... You know, I have a fine idea on how you can collect your money. Just teach 'em with the left foot and don't tell 'em what to do with the right foot until they pay up!" Murray thought about Bryan's remark, and devised the idea of teaching dance steps with footprint diagrams supplied by mail. Within a couple of years, over 500,000 dance courses had been sold. On April 24, 1925, Murray married his famous dance partner, Kathryn Kohnfelder (September 15, 1906, Jersey City, New Jersey August 6, 1999, Honolulu, Hawaii) , whom he had met at a radio station in New Jersey. She had been in the audience while he was broadcasting a dance lesson."
