THE PROJECT
Neben anderer wichtiger Monografien aus der Gründerzeit im Archiv des Museum of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Mo., USA, wurden 2003 die Originale der Erstausgaben von A.T.Stills vier Büchern  sorgfältig verpackt und an die Westküste geschickt. Dort erfolgt das einscannen der Bücher mittels eines speziellen Verfahrens. Vom Server der Scan-Firma werden mehr als 200 GB Datenmaterial von über 6.000 Seiten nach Deutschland übertragen. Jede einzelne Seite der transferierten Bilddateien werden in Deutschland für das Druckverfahren optimiert. Die Druckdateien werden anschließend in einer Spezialdruckerei in Berlin on-demand, d.h. in Kleinstauflage gedruckt und an das Berufsbildungswerk für Sprach- und Hörgeschädigte in München verschickt. Dort werden zunächst die Buchdeckel mit echtem dunkelbraunen Leder allerbester Qualität bezogen auf den eine Prägung mit Gold folgt. Anschließend werden die geprüften Exemplare an das Auslieferungshaus von JOLANDOS nach München verschickt. Von dort aus erhalten Kunden in der ganzen Welt diese außergewöhnlichen Kunstwerke. 

THE AUTHOR
A.T.Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine was born in Virginia in 1828. After sehrving an apprenticeship under his father, he completed additional coursework at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Kansas City, Missouri, He went on to serve as a surgeon in the Union Army during the American Civil War. After the Civil War and following the death of three of his children from spinal meningitis in 1864, Still concluded that the orthodox medical practices of his day were ineffective and devoted the next ten years of his life to studying the human body and fi nding better ways to treat disease.
His research and clinical observations led him to believe that the musculoskeletal system played a vital role in health and disease and that the body contained all of the elements needed to maintain health if properly stimulated. Still believed that by correcting problems in the body‘s structure, through the use of manual techniques, the body’s ability to function and to heal itself could be greatly improved.
He also promoted the idea of preventive medicine and endorsed the philosophy that physicians should focus on treating the whole patient (“triune nature of man”), rather than just the disease. At the time, these beliefs formed the basis of a new medical approach, osteopathic medicine.

THE BOOK
Osteolib-series, Vol. II.
This treatise on the philosophy of Osteopathy was also reprinted by the Academy of Applied Osteopathy and the American Academy of Osteopathy. Still felt that perhaps this book was a bit premature in being published at such an early date because Osteopathy was so new at this time. He did, however, want to publish something in response to others who had published about the topic, but who he felt deviated from the true nature of Osteopathy. He sets out guiding principles here in place of rigid rules. He uses the principle of normal versus abnormal to guide students into what he feels is the proper way of thinking about disease and treatment, and calls osteopaths artists. As all of his books, he uses a very plain English, Midwestern American dialect in his writing that is easy and fun to read.
