Description


TLS signed “Freud,” one page, 5.5 x 7.5, personal letterhead, March 25, 1927. Letter to a female colleague, in part: “As I said before, it will be impossible for me to come to the World Congress for Psychotherapy to be held in your town. Thank you for your friendly invitation.” Double-matted and framed with an image of the neurologist enjoying a cigar to an overall size of 16.5 x 13.75. In fine condition, with light surface impressions near the top edge. Founded in 1995, nearly seventy years after this letter was written, the World Congress of Psychotherapy is a triennially held convention highlighted by the bestowment of the Sigmund Freud Award on the basis of lifework, project development, and scientific publication. Freud was presumably unable to attend due to the imminent release of his 1927 book The Future of an Illusion, a short yet meditative psychoanalysis on religion’s need and basis within modern civilization. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
