Gymnastics.—The Climbing Stand
Health, Medical Treatment, Ancient Authorities
Hippocrates of Cos
The writer welcomes the introduction of a systematized form of gymnastics in Britain, and briefly reviews the history of gymnastics. It is observed that gymnastics 'is founded on principles of medical science, and thus, what in itself may be found a source of recreation, is rendered advantageous to health' (306).
