- "The Handbook of Anthropometry is designed to be of use to all those who are in any way called upon to measure or to make observations upon the human body, whether it be the living body, the cadaver, or the skeleton. It is deliberately brief, and contains only those measurements and directions for anthroposcopic and other observations which are in most common use, and which, from long experience by several generations of anthropometrists, have been found to be most useful. References to more exhaustive works on anthropometry will be found in the bibliography. It has been many years since a short handbook on anthropometry has been published, and since the present one is extracted and reprinted as a whole from the author's An Introduction to Physical Anthropology (Third edition, Springfield, Thomas, 1960), it should be stated that it is complete in itself and is in no way dependent upon the larger work. It is to be hoped that its separate publication will prove helpful to those who feel the need of such a work. Professor Josef Brožek's section on the measurement of body composition will, it is to be hoped, stimulate many workers to undertake studies of the human body which have hitherto been omitted or neglected for want of the proper methods"--Preface.
