The Interpretation of Dreams.
Authorised Translation of Third Edition with Introduction by A. A. Brill.New York, The Macmillan Company, 1913 Stock Code: 140894
NotesFirst edition in English, first printing, US issue, an unusually nice copy. Originally published as Die Traumdeutung (Lepizig & Vienna, 1900 1899). This important translation, by the Austrian-born psychiatrist, and the first psychoanalyst to practice in the United States, Abraham Brill, was published simultaneously in London and New York and was Freud's introduction to the English-speaking world. "This is unquestionably Freud's greatest single work. It contains all the basic components of psychoanalytic theory and practice; the erotic nature of dreams, the 'Oedipus complex', the libido, and the rest; all related to the background of the 'unconscious', later to be called the 'sub-conscious'" (PMM).
Octavo. Original grey-blue cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt.
A little sunning to spine but the gilt still bright, some minor marks to cloth and a little trivial rubbing to corners, sound and clean within, excellent condition.
