3 [Freud] HITSCHMANN, Edouard (1871-1957). Freud’s Neurosenlehre. Nach Ihrem Gegenwärtigen Stande Zusammenfassend Dargestellt von Dr. Eduard Hitschmann. Zweite, Ergänzte Auflage.
Leipzig and Vienna: Franz Deuticke, 1913. 1913 
8vo. (237 x 152 mm) vi, 173 pp. Uncut, a few pages unopened; some pages opened carelessly resulting in margin tears and loss of margin not affecting text. Original yellow printed wrappers; light ink smear to front wrapper, crease to back wrapper. Very good. Second, enlarged edition, the last in German, of ?the first definitive text on Freud’s theories... This volume received Freud’s approval and commendation. Hitschmann hoped to enlighten therapists who were antagonistic or indifferent to psychoanalysis? (Philip Becker, ?Edward Hitschmann? in Psychoanalytic Pioneers, p.162). This edition includes much material not found in the first: explanations of paranoia, references to narcissism and to various points of view about the understanding of the unconscious and of the causes of neuroses, and quotations from more recently appearing difficult works by Freud. After being introduced to Freud by Paul Fedem, Edouard Hitschmann joined the Wednesday Society in 1905. His voluminous output included psychoanalytic biographies, among which were studies of Goethe, Swedenborg, Eckermann, Brahms, and Boswell. Despite differing from Freud in his beliefs about the etiology of sexual neuroses, he was one of Freud’s favorite followers. Grinstein 14536.
