Special Collections Books/Journals

Special Collections refers to the books and journals which are collected due to their historical significance to Palmer, the chiropractic profession and the wider field of related health sciences.

Many of these books and journals are rare and unique, some of our titles are scarce and few copies exist in the world. To see what we have, search the library catalog.


Green Books

The Green Books are considered the "Holy Grail" of chiropractic and are aptly named because of their distinctive dark green binding. The Green Books, created by D.D. Palmer in 1906, were the first chiropractic textbooks. The Green Books continued with B.J. Palmer and his faculty until 1963.


Green Books
