This bibliography is a comprehensive survey of the literature on swimming, beginning with a book published in 1538 and including about 10,000 titles classified under 600 subjects, which range from those directly connected with swimming itself to material on air conditioning, poetry, pools and bathing places, spas and mineral baths, and water softening. References of special medical interest are found under such headings as Corrective Swimming and Underwater Gymnastics, Cripples, Diseases and Infections, Drowning, Physiologic Aspects, and Resuscitation. Author and subject entries, arranged in the same alphabet, are made for each item listed, with complete bibliographic data under the author and English translations of foreign titles under the subject. As a whole, the material seems well organized with a helpful division into specific subject headings and ample cross references to guide the user.
