by [SCHREBER, Daniel Paul (1842-1911)] SCHREBER, Daniel Gottlob (Gottlieb) Moritz (1808-1861).
Leipzig:: Friedrich Fleischer, 1877., 1877. 8vo. 112 pp. 45 illustrations; foxing throughout. Brown printed boards; spine reinforced with kozo, corners showing. Bookplate of Dr. J. Klauber. Very good. RARE. Thirteenth edition. Before Richard Simmons, Schreber recommended a series of isometric and physical exercise that could be "carried out without a device, everywhere, as a means to health and long life for both sexes of every age." [translated from the title page]. Exercise was also presented as a safeguard for mental health. Schreber was director of Leipzig's sanatorium. Schreber's oldest son, Daniel Schreber (1842-1911), authored the memoir Denkwurdigkeiten eines Nervenkranken. In the memoir the son reports how his father's insistence on certain physical exercises and practices led to a nervous breakdown and mental illness. Sigmund Freud used the book as the basis for refining and shaping his psychoanalytic technique.
