Gymnastic apparatus has probably been installed in every type of building, from the basement of a dwelling to a spacious armory. In many of these improvised buildings, the apparatus is installed and used under most severe difficulties, due to the inappropriate structural features of the building. These limitations should not be tolerated in a building designed as a gymnasium. The inside structural details should be arranged to allow the most advantageous use of gymnastic equipment. This booklet shows the principles of construction which harmonize with equipment requirements and outline various other essential building features. Very scarce; this is the first time we've had a copy of this title for sale.
