Physiology and Health Number Three
Publisher: Butler, Sheldon and Company, 1890 PHiladelphia, PA
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "Studies of the Human Body and of the Effects of Alcoholic Drinks and Narcotics Upon Life and Health." This textbook was endorsed by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). "Most of our States and Territories s now by law require that Physiology and Hygiene be taught in the Public Schools, with special reference to the effects of Alcoholic drinks and other Narcotics on the human system. Many existing books, prepared to meet the demands of the first enactments on this subject, do not fulfill the requirements of more recent legislation. The present work is designed to teach the essential laws of health, and to comply fully with the most stringent provisions of the enactments requiring this subject taught, by conforming to their primary object, namely: To have the children instructed as to the nature of Alcoholic Drinks and other Narcotics, and the results of their use, and thus to forewarn them against the insidious poisons that are the constant cause of so much misery and crime., As much of Anatomy and Physiology is taught as is necessary to this end. But these Sciences do not usurp the space and time that belong to the more important aims contemplated by the requirements which this book is intended to meet. The endeavor has been to make the physiological instruction clear and sufficient, - the Temperance teachings thorough, and as radical as the whole truth now revealed by modern scientific investigation.." Illustrated. vi + 208 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
