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." ". Very Good .
