Spring 1950 [on cover: Spring / Nineteen Fifty], (The Analytical Psychology Club of New York)
1 (The Analytical Psychology Club of New York) Spring 1950 [on cover: Spring / Nineteen Fifty]
[New York] The Analytical Psychology Club of New York, Incorporated 1950 NO (Annual Edition) Printed wraps Very Good Illustrated by (cover typography design) Geddes Smith 
(8.5 x 11 inches; typescript text, mimeographed on rectos only except for the title/copyright pages) [slight fading around edges of covers, vertical crease adjacent to front hinge with one-inch separation (tear) at bottom, vertical crease in rear cover, residue from former label near top of spine]. 89 + [1] Annual journal of the first Jungian organization in the U.S., founded in 1936 as a forum for the discussion of C.G. Jung's ideas. This issue presents the following six essays: "Shadow, Animus, and Anima," by Dr. Jung himself, translated by William M. Kennedy; "Jungian Psychology in Wartime Germany," by Anneliese Aumuller; "What Can We Ask of Marriage?", by Helen G. Henley; "An Introduction to Astrology," by Hector Hoppin; "Dreams of a Movie-Maker," by James Kirsch; and "The Image of the Marriage Between God and Israel as It Occurs in the Prophets of the Old Testament, Especially Ezekiel XVI," by Riwkah Schaerf. (An errata sheet for the last-named essay is laid in at its opening page.) The Kirsch essay is of particular interest, presenting the author's detailed analysis of three dreams experienced by a screenwriter (who is anonymized in the telling, of course), prefaced by some commentary about the creative plight of the writer in Hollywood, which "with its iridescent glamor and its handsome material rewards, occasions in the creative writer a profound conflict between the fascination this world has, and the compulsion of the still inner voice of his soul, which fills him with creative life, and forces him to express it," but "only in a distorted manner." In the opinion of Dr. Kirsch, however, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, since "one can actually see a favorable sign in the fact that so many writers are neurotic and seeking psychiatric help." Spoken like a man with a thriving practice in Beverly Hills, I'd say, although to be fair it should be noted that Dr. Kirsch was in fact a significant figure in Jungian circles: he was an early student of Jung's, and later a co-founder of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, and the two maintained a continuing relationship and correspondence from 1929 until Jung's death in 1961. (A selection of their letters, published in 2011, was lauded by one reviewer "one of the more amazing books to surface in recent publishing history.") The last (unnumbered) page is a list of publications available from the Club.

[light shelfwear, bottom corners a little bumped, a bit of spotting/soiling to top edge of text block; jacket a bit edgeworn, tiny nicks at a couple of corners, visible wear at spine ends]. Non-fiction account of a notorious four-day "encounter group" session involving management executives from an international cosmetics distribution company called Holiday Magic, conducted at a motel in Palo Alto, California. The book revealed that these people (including co-author Church), as part of a course conducted by the "Leadership Dynamics Institute," had been "virtually imprisoned" during this event, and "in the interest of being sensitized to become better salesmen and leaders were beaten, whipped, jammed into coffins, forced to perform unnatural sex acts and, in several cases, crucified." (And you thought "Glengarry Glen Ross" was brutal!) The book served as the basis for the 1983 movie CIRCLE OF POWER (aka THE NAKED WEEKEND), and has been frequently cited in academic analyses of encounter groups and large group awareness training.

[nice copy, no discernible wear, the slightest hint of soiling to top edge; jacket shows the faintest bit of rubbing to rear panel only]. "The relationship between a father and a son is complex, and impacts relationships within the entire family, often leading to conflicts which are difficult to resolve.

The substance of [the book] is presented through an exchange of letters written by the authors to each other.

As each author is also a well-respected psychotherapist, readers will have the unique opportunity...." OK, enough of that; I'll wait for the movie.

[good solid copy, mild shelfwear, previous owner's signature on ffep; jacket moderately edgeworn, a couple of small tears at top of rear panel, small piece missing at bottom of spine]. "This book is an amalgam of experts on both sides of the bars: psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, criminologists, attorneys and former inmates. [The editor] has treated us to both scientific papers and subjective reports. There are tables, figures, hypotheses and there are introspective accounts from those who have themselves been in the pit. Those latter reports are of special interest. They do not exploit the situation by wallowing in self-pity or sensationalism; rather, they unfailingly report the rampant enforced homosexuality, the omnipresent graft, the thorough dehumanization and the too-frequent suicide."

[very nice copy, the faintest bit of spotting to top edge but otherwise as new except for a tiny gouge in the rear endpaper; jacket shows extremely light surface wear]. Fascinating work on the famous German "wild child," whose enigmatic and tragic life has inspired writers, filmmakers and psychoanalysts for over 150 years. "Jeffrey Masson, whose work on the reality of child abuse in Freud's time created an explosion in the world of psychoanalysis, has discovered the earliest document on the Kaspar Hauser story -- Georg Friedrich Daumer's notes of Kaspar Hauser's first two years in Daumer's house, long thought to be lost. On the basis of these notes and other documents, some previously unpublished, Masson provides the first complete English translation of one of the great works of German literature, Anselm [Ritter] von Feuerbach's story of Kaspar Hauser. Along with this translation, Masson includes a lengthy essay in which he explores many of the fascinating issues raised by the case."

"The riveting, almost unbelievable story of a man with everything to live for who became addicted to the adrenaline surge of high-stakes gambling, who would over and over betray his family, his friends, and anyone else who trusted him in order to obtain the bankroll that was always going to recoup his staggering losses -- but never did. It is also the story of a cry for help, a cry never heard until Hodges [the book's subject], on the run from the FBI, read of Dr. Robert L. Custer's ground-breaking work with gambling addicts, and made the appointment -- under an assumed name -- that started him on the long road to recovery."

New York/Westport CT/London Praeger 1991 0-275-92943-4 / 9780275929435 First Edition Hardcover Fine 
(no dust jacket, probably as issued) [nice clean as-new copy, clean text, no discernible wear]. From the author's preface: "The Jewish pluralistic interpretation system known under the acronym PaRDeS, which will be introduced in this book, entails the potential therapeutic bridge between the rational-material and the irrational-mystic worlds that I have sought ever since I first immersed myself in studies about the Judeo-Christian impact on Western social sciences in the early 1970s. I have thus devoted this book to the study of psychotherapy as a dual, or a 'dia-logic,' discourse between the rational-cognitive and the mystic-schizophrenic languages." (He also acknowledges that the book "was written immediately after my beloved youngest son, Boaz, was killed in action in the Israeli army, as a result of which I felt more than ever a need to relate to the world of the transcendental unknown.")

Borderland Minds, Wilson, Margaret
20 Wilson, Margaret Borderland Minds
Boston Meador Publishing Company 1940 NO First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dj 
[nice copy, light shelfwear only, faint dust-soiling to top edge, one-time private owner's "Library of" stamp on endpapers and front pastedown; jacket lightly browned at spine and edges, minor smudging near top of front panel, miniscule chip at top of front panel, a few insignificant closed tears at edges of rear panel, faint owner name stamp on rear panel]. Memoir by "an Ex-Patient from Blackmoor," a fictionalized psychiatric hospital, probably in the eastern U.S. The author was a professional woman (self-described as "a writer and teacher of business reports") with a host of what would today be called "issues": her mother died when she was 13, mostly-absent father, difficult stepmother, close but difficult relationship with a slightly older brother, shocking sudden death of a young boyfried, had to support herself at an early age, suffered from "tonsilitis, laryngitis, ovaritis, and appendicitis," bla bla bla. Of course she had a "nervous breakdown" (because that was just what women did in those days), but her real mistake seems to have been poor choice in roommates, she having fallen in with a slightly older woman named Grace, described as "often moody and lonesome [and] a difficult person sometimes." Although Margaret describes their friendship as on the whole "quite harmonious," when she was going through a difficult recovery from gall bladder surgery (no doubt brought on by some other -itis), Grace basically deceived her into having herself "voluntarily" committed to Blackmoor. What was intended as a little R&R somehow turned into a five-year stay, chonicled by Ms. Wilson's book in exactly the sort of clear-eyed and relatively unemotional style you'd expect from a writer and teacher of business reports -- even when she's describing her own suicide attempt. "It is not my aim to give a 'sob story' of my experiences," she writes in her Foreword, but just "to give some idea how you might think, act, and feel in my place." (There will be a quiz.) The closest she gets to identifying "Blackmoor" is in the penultimate chapter, when she states that it was "conveniently situated in a healthful region, and is supported by one of the wealthiest counties in the United States."
