Description

Preface

Dr. John Martin Littlejohn had been Editor of the American Journal of Osteopathy when he was in Kirksville at the turn of the nineteenth century. After his return to England in 1913, he founded the British School of Osteopathy in 1917, and the Journal of Osteopathy came into being as the official organ of the School with Dr. Littlejohn as its Editor and a prominent contributor.

The content of this publication is a collection of Dr. Littlejohn s articles on “Osteopathy – A Biological Science” which has been reprinted as it first appeared in the Journal of Osteopathy in the early 1930s.

An interesting and invaluable insight can be found into Dr. Littlejohn‘s thinking and practice, together with those of his colleagues and the early pioneers in those burgeoning days of Osteopathy.

The John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy, true to its tradition of keeping these original texts alive, is pleased to publish this book to be launched at the John Wernham Memorial Lectures 2013 in Madrid, which has as its theme

“Osteopathy – A Biological Science”
