Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939)
Die Traumdeutung.

First edition of Freud's Interpretation of Dreams, octavo, original pale blue publisher's front cover present, rebound in modern half brown cloth and paste paper boards, without back cover, housed in custom box, 8 1/2 x 5 3/4 in.

"Unquestionably Freud's greatest single work." (PMM) Here, Freud introduces the idea of the unconscious, and leaves an indelible mark on culture, advancing the idea that dreams have symbolic meaning to the dreamer beyond their literal content.
