[INTRODUCTION; LAMANSKY; RADCLIFFE AND HIS IDEA OF ACTIVE RELAXATION] The first volume of this text on the history of muscle physiology (see: https://hdl.handle.net/2144/42404) covered the long span of time from Hippocrates through the first seventy years of the nineteenth century. By far most of this time period was marked by the very slow development of the experimental sciences. But as discussion concluded in the final chapter of the volume, we saw a significant number of investigators of many different countries effectively engaged in producing a torrent of important facts on muscle histology, biochemistry, and mechanics. In less than a decade so prodigious did the amount of this work become that the present volume is able to cover meaningfully only the thirty year period from 1870 to 1900. [TRUNCATED]
