And just what precise phrasing are we talking about?

My two early editions of Book 1, (the earliest listing only books 1,2 & 3 on
the back cover, the next one going as far as mentioning Book 15 in a pocket
edition) only go as far as bar 12 in defining what people are doing when!

My most recent edition lists the instructions completely for a 40 bar dance,
(but only shows / annotates 32 bars of music)
