8 photographs on 4 pages of heavy stock (mounted woodburytypes), wood engravings and woodcuts.

Five pages into his text Roth writes, "I agree with those who maintain that in lateral curvature of the spine, osseous deformity is always preceded by so-called 'postural deformity'." And from this argument he spins forth his remedies of poor posture in school children with numerous woodcut illustrations interspersed in the text. The photographs, however, are what make this book a prize: six views of a young woman posed dishabillé, and two dorsal views of a seven year old, both subjects suffering from a moderate declination of the spine.
