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.
