Inaugural-Dissertation zur Erlangung der Doktorwürde einer Hohen medicinischen Facultät der Universität Zürich.Leipzig : 1902 Stock Code: 128837
NotesFirst edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author at the head of the front board, "Herrn Dr. Hoch mit den besten Grüssen, der Verfasser." This is the true first edition of Jung's doctoral dissertation, published in advance of the book version issued later the same year.
A superb association: the recipient Dr August Hoch (1868-1919) was the third director of the New York State Psychiatric Institute in New York City from 1910 to 1917. At the time of publication of Jung's dissertation, he held a position at McLean Hospital, in Belmont, Massachusetts. Following Freud and Jung's famous series of lectures at Clark University in 1909, Hoch went for an extended visit to Zurich, where he studied with Jung, underwent a brief period of treatment for depression, and became a strong supporter of Jung's version of psychoanalysis (Lathrop et al.) His only child, Susan (Susie) married Lawrence S. Kubie (1896-1973), who would himself go on to become a noted psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.
This copy remained with Kubie, who bequeathed his books to the medical library at Sheppard-Pratt Hospital, Baltimore. The book was later deaccessioned and acquired by the bibliophile and bookseller John P. Gach (1946-2009), who specialized in works on psychology, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis, and sold by him to the Detroit psychologist Dr Raymond Small.
