In this book the author lays especial stress on the exercises that develop the respiratory organs in a healthful way as well as harmoniously build up the general muscular system, and also discusses their therapeutic usage. It is not the acrobatic gymnastics that is treated of, but the scientifically ordered exercise that symmetrically develops the organism and which can be employed as a valuable part of the treatment of various diseases and deformities, including some not exclusively those of the respiratory organs although these are naturally the first considered. The book is very fully illustrated and liberal in its references to French, Swedish and other continental authorities on the subject.
