This hard to find 7-3/4 x 10 inch, 210 page hardcover book by Fritz Giese in very good condition was published in 1927 by Dephin Verlag in Munich. It has 116 excellent photographs that are interestingly in the first section of the book, followed by the explaining text. Usually it is the other way around but the author did this intentionally, he wanted the reader to look at the pictures first and then read about them. It is an interesting book on the importance of balance between body and soul, achieved through gymnastics and dance, often in the nude. The Nazis adopted many of these ideas and this book is great Nazi nudist forerunner material of what became the Nazi organization Bund fuer Leibeszucht which was strongly supported by Heinrich Himmler and Reinhard Heydrich. The purpose of this organization was to de-eroticize nudity and to demonstrate how exercises in the nude out in mother nature (preferably at the beaches of the North Sea, Baltic Sea or at the shore of a lake) strenghten body and soul and make him/her become a healthier and better Volksgenosse (Fellow German).
