This book is written from the standpoint of physical education and physical therapy. It deals especially with bones, joints and muscles and contains also brief chapters on other systems— nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory and the ductless glands. It represents a serious and conscientious effort to present in an orderly way such fundamental facts in the structure of the human body as would be especially interesting to students of physical education. The illustrations have been borrowed for the most part from standard works. They are well selected and instructive. The style is condensed, tabulation being often substituted for descriptive sentences, with the result that sometimes the meaning is a little uncertain. Unfortunately, the book contains mistakes in English, Latin, logic and anatomy.
