Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) (PT56)

A rare handwritten letter signed by Sigmund Freud

Freud was a pioneering and highly influential founder of psychoanalysis whose theories revolutionized the understanding the human psyche.

This handwritten letter in German, is signed 'Freud' at the close.

It is aone page note, on personal letterhead paper, measuring5.75 x 9" and dated September 15, 1929.

Freud writes to a colleague, Dr. Feigenbaum. In full:

"Here is the introduction, as promised. I am not sure, however, if I am indeed doing you a favor with same...It is very coarse and candid.

"Perhaps, in your opinion an utterance like that may not be deemed acceptable for use in your new publication in the U.S. Should you decide against making use of it, I shall certainly not be offended.

"If you do take the plunge, I urge you to carefully evaluate the wording, as much depends on the nuance. I am curious to learn what your decision will be."

Feigenbaum was one of Sigmund Freud's first students, and was a psychiatrist who was then running an institution for the mentally ill in Jerusalem.

A bit of scattered light wrinkling, otherwise in very fine condition.
