1881 1ed West Point Military System of Gymnastic Exercises Swimming Farrow

Edward Farrow’s ‘Military System of Gymnastic Exercises’ was written for the cadets of the United States Military Academy and military colleges. Publishers weekly states,

“This course of gymnastics and system of swimming were prepared to meet a long-felt want in the corps of cadets at the U.S. Military Academy. By briefing and generalizing from larger works, the author has made a very suitable text-book that other than those training for soldiers will find interesting and useful. The book is adopted as a textbook at West-Point, where Lieut. Farrow is Assistant Instructor of Tactics.”

Farrow breaks his book into two parts, gymnastics and swimming

This 1881 edition includes numerous in text illustrations throughout to demonstrate different motions, positions, and exercises!
