Sigmund Freud signed first offprint edition of his autobiography, inscribed to fellow psychoanalyst Oskar Pfister. Marked ''Nicht im Handel'' (''not for sale'') and ''Sonderdruck'' (''offprint''), this work was originally published in Volume IV of ''Die Medizin der Gegenwart in Selbstdarstellungen'' (loosely translated to ''Contemporary Medicine Through Autobiographies''), and here constitutes its first separate issue. The series as originally published was designed to show the current state of medicine, as elucidated by the autobiographies of its leading practitioners. In green wrappers, published in Leipzig: Felix Meiner, 1925, in German. Signed and inscribed by Freud on the front wrapper to Pfister, and dated 1925. Pfister pens a gift inscription to the verso page of a photo frontispiece portrait of Freud, and also notates the last page in pencil. Freud and Pfister (a Swiss Protestant Minister) kept up a correspondence from 1909-1939 which was published in both English and German in 1963. Measures 6.25'' x 9''. A near fine copy, beautifully housed in a custom clamshell box.
