Anthropometry by Aleš Hrdlička( Book )

"Anthropometry may perhaps be most simply and comprehensively defined as the conventional art or system of measuring the human body and its parts. The object of anthropometry is to supplement visual observation, which is always more or less limited and uncertain, by accurate mechanical determinations. As a result of the multiple applications of body measurements, there have become differentiated, aside from the industrial and artistic systems which are of little interest to us in this connection, the military, criminological, and also clinical and eugenic anthropometry, besides that used for strictly scientific research and more particularly for anthropological purposes. As to the last named, were it not for the seeming alliteration of the two words, the term Anthropological anthropometry would be of real utility. The present treatise is devoted to measurements used in anthropology. The aim of anthropological measurements is not to replace, but supplement visual and other observations, or give them more precision"--Introduction.
