#192 - Sigmund Freud Signed Check Estimate: $4,000+

Freud's advance for a 1938 edition of 'A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis'

Extremely rare Liveright Publishing Corporation business check, 8.5 x 3, filled out in another hand as payable to Sigmund Freud for $787.50, February 21, 1938, endorsed on the reverse by the famed psychoanalyst, "Sigmund Freud." The memo field notes that the payment is for "balance due on advance, Garden City Reprint edition A General Intod. to Psycho." In fine condition, with a central vertical fold, and trivial loss to two corners.

In 1938, Garden City Publishing released a deluxe hardcover edition of Freud's A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis, which was first published by Horace Liveright in 1920. The lectures became the most popular and widely translated of his works, and were edited and re-released frequently over the ensuing years and decades. An exceedingly rare format, this is the first Freud check—endorsed or otherwise—that we have offered.
