        The Interpretation of Dreams.

      The MacMillan Company, New York 1913 - First edition in English of this cornerstone of psychoanalysis. Octavo, original blue cloth. In very good condition with light rubbing to the crown of the spine. Introduction by A.A. Brill. "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). First published in German in 1899 Die Traumdeutung has "ranked Freud with Darwin and Marx. This book remained for Freud his greatest achievement." He later wrote that it contains "'the most valuable of all the discoveries it has been my good fortune to make. Insight such as this falls to one's lot but once in a lifetime" (Grolier 87). Freud revised the book at least eight times and, in the third edition, added an extensive section which treated dream symbolism very literally, following the influence of Wilhelm Stekel. Freud said of this work, "Insight such as this falls to one's lot but once in a lifetime." Listed on Modern Library 100 greatest non-fiction books of the twentieth century.

A fine copy.Marcus Aurelius. Latin: Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus; [26 April 121 - 17 March 180 AD) was Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He ruled with Lucius Verus as co-emperor from 161 until Verus' death in 169. Marcus Aurelius was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors. He was a practitioner of Stoicism, and his untitled writing, commonly known as the Meditations, is the most significant source of the modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy. During his reign, the Empire defeated a revitalized Parthian Empire in the East: Aurelius' general Avidius Cassius sacked the capital Ctesiphon in 164. In central Europe, Aurelius fought the Marcomanni, Quadi, & Sarmatians with success during the Marcomannic Wars, although the threat of the Germanic tribes began to represent a troubling reality for the Empire. A revolt in the East led by Avidius Cassius failed to gain momentum and was suppressed immediately. Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, written in Greek while on campaign between 170 and 180, are still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.

        The Lodger. Copyright edition.

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1913 - Octavo (151 x 105 mm). Contemporary orange cloth, gilt lettered green skiver label. Spine rolled and toned, slight wear to back cover, front free endpaper toned and slightly dampstained, yet a very good copy, clean and sound. First Tauchnitz edition, published in the same year as the London and New York editions. Presentation copy from the author to fellow novelist A. S. M. Hutchinson, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "A. S. M. Hutchinson, with the kind thoughts of the writer, Marie Belloc Lowndes". Arthur Stewart-Menteth Hutchinson (1879-1971) was editor of The Daily Graphic and a prolific author whose bestselling If Winter Comes (1922) was, like The Lodger, adapted for the screen (MGM, 1947). Belloc Lowndes's most enduring novel, "a story of a London couple in the 1880s who suspect that their lodger is Jack the Ripper. has undergone various adaptations, as a stage play, several films (including an early Alfred Hitchcock), and an opera by Phyllis Tate. The Lodger was a best-seller in its day, yet Marie Belloc Lowndes found herself constrained in the summer of 1914 to borrow £350 from her brother, Hilaire Belloc, to pay off an overdraft, a debt which seemed to rankle over the years, although in general brother and sister remained friends" (ODNB). Decidedly uncommon: Copac cites just the Bishopsgate Library copy among British and Irish institutional libraries (although there is a copy in the Todd-Bowden Collection at the BL); OCLC adds another 20 worldwide. Inscribed copies are particularly elusive. Hubin p. 256 (not listing this edition) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

(1611). It is divided regionally into 5 numbered libri, covering Goa, Ethiopia and Monomotapa (Mutapa in what is now South Africa); Cochin (Kochi in India), the Malabar coast, Pegu (Bagu in what is now western Myanmar) and Madura Island; Japan and China; Sierra Leone and Guinea; and Ethiopia.With library stamps.

        The Interpretation of Dreams

      London: George Allen, 1913. First Edition. Cloth. Near fine. 1st edition in English, the scarce 1st state, and also the 1st issue. But why is it the 1st state? Let's snuggle up against the bibliography without falling into it. All the 1st edition sheets were printed in England, but only a small fraction of them were issued there with an integral London (George Allen) title page. Almost all of the sheets were sent to the U. S. for the New York (1st American) edition, and they were issued there with a cancel title page, followed by copies with an integral title (likely a case of initially printing a title page to be tipped in as a cancel, and then printing a single sheet bifolium which was sewn in for the integral title page, but not reprinting the text, that came even later). Exact publication dates are not known but the London edition is, inarguably, the 1st state with its integral London title page, exactly as the book was 1st printed. It precedes, the NY edition, probably by a week, or 2. And besides it being the primary edition, it's 20 times (40 times?) scarcer than the NY edition, of which there are always copies for sale, mostly because the London issue was reserved for, and only sold to, "the medical, scholastic, legal, and clerical professions" and never sold to the public, and a printed publisher's note, tipped-in to all copies (present in our copy, missing in others) ratifies this. For contrast, ABPC records 8 copies of the NY issue sold at auction since the mid-1970s, against no copies of this London issue. Original cloth, not known by me to exist in, or have been issued in, a dustjacket. 3 faint spots to the cloth, spine faded a shade darker, first and last few leaves foxed, else near fine (see photograph). Want more? It's a superb association copy. Ex-Dr. Alan W. Tyson, eminent psychiatrist, assistant editor of Freud's Works, and the translator of 3 of Freud's books, as well as 3 of his clinical papers. Our copy has 6 pages of Tyson's apt, closely written, pencil notes on the 4 rear blanks and endpapers, the notes themselves a dissection of the text as earnest as any published. Incorrect attributions of priority for the NY edition follow a simple minded projection from insufficient data; that because the translation, was done by an American (A. A. Brill) the N. Y. issue must precede, another case of convenient erroneous conclusions (bikinis cause hot weather, or spoons make you fat) here drawn from the guesses of expediency, motivated by either materialism (given that it is the NY edition that booksellers always have in hand to sell), or an inability (moral exhaustion?) to be honestly discerning (like having garbage can security judged by raccoons, or tennis ball inflation judged by Golden Retrievers). But our book is the genuine article, and comparing this London edition to the New York edition is like comparing a peach, to peach scented room freshener. And here's a social warning. "Let me tell you about my dream last night…" is, at all times, an introduction that calls for the interjection, "Hold it right there!".

        The Interpretation of Dreams

      George Allen, London 1913 - 1st edition in English, the scarce 1st state, and also the 1st issue. But why is it the 1st state? Let's snuggle up against the bibliography without falling into it. All the 1st edition sheets were printed in England, but only a small fraction of them were issued there with an integral London (George Allen) title page. Almost all of the sheets were sent to the U. S. for the New York (1st American) edition, and they were issued there with a cancel title page, followed by copies with an integral title (likely a case of initially printing a title page to be tipped in as a cancel, and then printing a single sheet bifolium which was sewn in for the integral title page, but not reprinting the text, that came even later). Exact publication dates are not known but the London edition is, inarguably, the 1st state with its integral London title page, exactly as the book was 1st printed. It precedes, the NY edition, probably by a week, or 2. And besides it being the primary edition, it's 20 times (40 times?) scarcer than the NY edition, of which there are always copies for sale, mostly because the London issue was reserved for, and only sold to, "the medical, scholastic, legal, and clerical professions" and never sold to the public, and a printed publisher's note, tipped-in to all copies (present in our copy, missing in others) ratifies this. For contrast, ABPC records 8 copies of the NY issue sold at auction since the mid-1970s, against no copies of this London issue. Original cloth, not known by me to exist in, or have been issued in, a dustjacket. 3 faint spots to the cloth, spine faded a shade darker, first and last few leaves foxed, else near fine (see photograph). Want more? It's a superb association copy. Ex-Dr. Alan W. Tyson, eminent psychiatrist, assistant editor of Freud's Works, and the translator of 3 of Freud's books, as well as 3 of his clinical papers. Our copy has 6 pages of Tyson's apt, closely written, pencil notes on the 4 rear blanks and endpapers, the notes themselves a dissection of the text as earnest as any published. Incorrect attributions of priority for the NY edition follow a simple minded projection from insufficient data; that because the translation, was done by an American (A. A. Brill) the N. Y. issue must precede, another case of convenient erroneous conclusions (bikinis cause hot weather, or spoons make you fat) here drawn from the guesses of expediency, motivated by either materialism (given that it is the NY edition that booksellers always have in hand to sell), or an inability (moral exhaustion?) to be honestly discerning (like having garbage can security judged by raccoons, or tennis ball inflation judged by Golden Retrievers). But our book is the genuine article, and comparing this London edition to the New York edition is like comparing a peach, to peach scented room freshener. And here's a social warning. "Let me tell you about my dream last night?" is, at all times, an introduction that calls for the interjection, "Hold it right there!". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
