The ABC of Physical Culture by Arthur Ransome was published in August 1904 by Henry J. Drane.

It was the first book published under his name, but it was not a work which he ever mentioned in later years as it did not count to him, and the book shows that he still had a lot to learn (LAR p40,49).

The seven short chapters were titled: Exercises for General Health, Muscular, Breathing, Smoking, Food, Drinking and Sleep. The book had been commissioned by Henry J. Drane of "Drane's Well-Known ABC Handbooks" with titles such as The ABC of .... Billiards, Palmistry, Cooking for Invalids and Solo Whist. They sold at one shilling (1/-) apiece (TLE p41).
