From the Preface:
"The aim in this little book has been to sketch out a course of gymnastics suitable for use in schools and classes. I have tried, on the one hand, to render it so complete that the various sets of muscles in the wrist, the hand, the fingers, and to a certain extent in the arm also, should receive due development. On the other hand, I have kept constantly in view the necessity of avoiding any exercise in which there could be the slightest chance of danger owing to carelessness or misunderstanding of the directions given."
