Physiology for Young People
Adapted to Intermediate Classes and Common Schools
Published ca. 1889, 214 Pages, Illustrated Hardcover, New Pathfinder #2

This listing is for an antique book called "Physiology for Young People" (or Young People's Physiology, on the front cover), which is a multiple author collection of chapters of anatomy, physiology, and hygiene. It carries an "endorsement" by Mary H. Hunt, National and International Superintendent of the Scientific Dept of the Women's Christian Temperance Union (also Life Director of the National Educational Association). It measures 7.25 inches by 5 inches, and has 214 pages, many with illustrations (mainly of a medical nature).

The book is in fair to good condition. The binding (spine) has a bit of wear at the top and bottom, and is somewhat separated on the inside cover edge (but not loose from the pages). There are no missing pages, but a few pages have marks and hand-writing (see closeup photos).

The publisher is American Book Company of New York, Cincinnati, and Chicago.

Please note that some of the pictures were taken with flash, others were in natural light, which is why the piece may look lighter or darker or have white spots in the photos.
