The Interpretation of Dreams, Sigmund Freud
Second American edition of what 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 389). This is the first printing of the second American edition, the first which was translated from the third German edition, thus making this the fourth edition overall. Early American printings, particularly in this condition, are quite uncommon.
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1915. pp. xiii, 510. Very good or better. Binding is sturdy, rubbing and light wear to board extremities, a few minor spots to boards, spine tanned, small Brentano's Bookstore label to rear pastedown, foxing to pastedowns and endpapers, very scattered foxing internally, else clean. A very attractive copy, protected in a removable archival sleeve.
