'the foundation of psychoanalysis' - one of only 600 copies. The first edition of Sigmund Freud's most important contribution to the field of psychoanalysis, The Interpretation of Dreams. One of only 600 copies published. Die Traumdeutung is Freud's most personal work, and draws upon his own experiences of self-analysis to present what is in effect the first psychoanalytic case-history study.

At first the book struggled to sell, and copies of the 1899 edition were still available 8 years after publication. However, the work saw later success, and Freud's claim that 'Psychoanalysis may have been said to have been born with the twentieth century' rings true. A second edition was published in 1909, soon followed by a third, and thereafter translations of the text into English, Russian, Spanish, French, Swedish, Japanese, Hungarian, and Czech — all completed before Freud's death in 1939.

'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).

First edition, one of 600 copies; 8vo (23 x 15.5 cm); text in German, bibliography and table of contents present at rear, slight browning to title-page margins and last leaf verso, hinges of last few ff. of text reinforced with tape, a few areas of glue residue; contemporary half purple cloth, marbled boards, minor wear to upper joint and spine caps; [4], 371, [5]pp.

PMM 389; Grolier Medicine 87; Horblit 32.
