American psychologist REIK (1888-1969, born in Vienna, Austria) was one of Sigmund Freud's earliest and most brilliant students (their association lasted from 1910-1938, when Reik came to the U.S.). In 1948, Dr. Reik, who is noted for his research in such areas as masochism and criminology, founded the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. His works include The Secret Self (1952), Of Love and Lust (1957), Voices from the Inaudible (1964), Curiosities of the Self (1965) and The Many Faces of Sex (1956). Lightly toned, stained and creased. Handwriting, but not signature, is lightly smeared in places, but legible. Show-through on both sides of letter, which touch signature and handwriting.
