Verlag von J.F. Bergmann, 1901. First popularized edition of the abridged version of "Die Tramdeutung" (The Interpretation of Dreams) which was first published in 1899 and was initially unsuccessful thus forcing Freud to publish a more popular and condensed version for the public. "On February 1, 1900, Freud wrote that he had promised a condensed version of the 'Interpretation of Dreams' for Loewendeld's series entitled 'Grenzfragen des Nerven-und Seelenlebens'. He began in October and must have written it with his usual facility, since it was published in the following year while he was simultaneously engaged in writing two other monographs. It was not the only time that Freud wrote a more popular version of his great work, and each time he accompanied this far from easy task with an astonishing freshness, so that even those familiar with teh subject read the new version with teh sense of reading something new to them" (Jones, p. 397). From the estate of Ernest S. Wolf (former psychoanalyst at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis). All text in German.
