"Bennett at the age of 50 had become an old man in poor health, suffering from a number of chronic complaints and many wrinkles. Despairing of relief from doctors and drugs he finally devised a series of some 35 different exercises to be done in bed before arising in the morning. After following them faithfully for years he had become, in all respects, a young man at 70. This was attested by medical examinations. His face had become smooth without a single wrinkle. His theory was that the body gets old through the accumulation of mineral deposits in the tissues, which finally become stiff and inelastic. The object of his exercises was to contract and then relax all the muscles and tissues to squeeze the mineral deposits out to be carried off in the blood stream. In 1912 he followed with another book called 'Old Age - Its Cause & Prevention' " (Sanford Bennet webpage). Very Good .

Riddlesbarger is believed to have been an Army Air Corps pilot during World War I. He later worked for the U. S. Post Office, flying air mail starting in 1920, but was grounded in 1921 for failing to promptly report a forced landing, resulting in delay to the mail.

SHAFTESBURY, EDMUND (ALBERT WEBSTER EDGERLY)
Lessons in Artistic Deep Breathing for Strengthening the Voice. . .
Washington D. C.: Martyn College Press, 1888. Author's Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Very Good+ condition and possibly issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. The covers of the book have some light edge wear, bumping and wear to the spine ends and corners. The foredges of the book covers and a small portion of the bottom edges of the book covers have been nibbled on by a rodent at some point. The text pages are mostly clean and bright. There are a couple of small pencilled notations to three or four pages. "The Lessons in Artistic Deep Breathing are printed in book form, now, for the first time, and the Edition is a limited one. The Object is one of philanthropy, not profit; for, if every copy of this Edition that has thus far been printed should be sold, the expenses will not have been fully met. "Albert Webster Edgerly (1852 – 1926) was a 19th and 20th century American social reform activist. He believed in euthanasia programs, a healthy diet, and the power of personal magnetism, and began the Ralstonism movement as a way to live out this lifestyle." "Under the pseudonym Edmund Shaftesbury, Edgerly was a prolific author of self-help and utopian religious texts, producing over 100 books, most of them "official" books to buy as a member of the Ralston Health Club. They are "chock-full of racist rants, naive pseudoscience, and curmudgeonly attacks on modern society." He also dabbled unsuccessfully in real-estate speculation and the theater, and invented a language called "Adam-Man Tongue" that was "nothing more than a bizarre-looking version of English." ".
