The Freud/Jung Letters

By Sigmund Freud; C. G. Jung; William McGuire, editor

London: The Hogarth Press and Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1974. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. Published jointly by the Princeton University Press and Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1974. Light shelf wear to the book; a bit more to the tips, corners, and edges of the jacket. Clean and unmarked. First printing, no others noted. Besides providing a wealth of material about both the theoretical and the institutional developments of early psychoanalysis, the correspondence also charts the intense relationship between Freud and Jung during the period in question. Where Jung wrote of his "unconditional veneration" for Freud, the latter in turn claimed that "Your person has filled with confidence in the future". What has been seen as a mixture of narcissistic idealisation and grandiosity on the part of both men, combined with the persisting theoretical differences of substance over the Libido theory in particular, led ultimately to the break-up of the relationship - giving the shape of the correspondence something of the appearance of a classic tragedy.--Wikipedia. "In no way does it disappoint the large expectation it has naturally aroused, and (apart from minor reservations about some of the translations) the quality of the edition is widely recognised."--Lionel Trilling in the New York Times.

When Horses Walked on Water: Horse-Powered Ferries in Nineteenth-Century America

By Kevin J. Crisman; Arthur B. Cohn

Washington DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. Signed Dedication copy. Near book in a jacket with spine sunned. First printing, full number line. Bibliography with notes, index and appendices. The "dedication copy" signed by Cohn on the title page with an inscription to the dedicatee on the appropriate page. The authors "show how a confluence of geographic, technological, economic, and social conditions in the United States and Canada turned an ancient idea into a practical alternative to more expensive and dangerous steamboats. Reviewing evidence from travelers' memoirs, regional histories, pictorial records, and the only horseboat ever studied by archaeologists - a wreck on the floor of Lake Champlain's Burlington Bay, in Vermont - the authors trace the evolution of horseboats from early mechanisms that forced the animals to walk in tight circles to "endless floor" treadmills that resembled modern exercise machines. In a lively narrative interspersed with quotes from passenger accounts, the book charts the rise and demise of horseboat businesses on the Hudson River, as well as in New York City, St. Louis, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The authors also describe and record the underwater excavation of the Lake Champlain wreck, revealing a wealth of detail about the construction and operation of a typical treadwheel horseboat of the 1830s and 1840s." WorldCat abstract. Dedicated to Dr. Marjory Power, Professor Emerita of the University of Vermont, Department of Anthropolgy. Dr. Power was a supporter of thr Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, the research home of the authors. She was active in Vermont archaeology for more than 25 years. Her most widely known scholarly work was The Original Vermonters: Native Americans Past and Present, co-authored with Dr. William Haviland.
