THEODOR REIK. ALS: "Theodor Reik.", 1p, 8½x11. New York, New York, 1964 November 17. On his personal imprinted letterhead to "Dear Mrs. Crawford". In full: "I am quite touched by your effort to save time for me. I would, of course, like to have dinner with you Willy [illegible] and Berthold (sic) Fles at [illegible] (or preferably a Viennese restaurant for instance [two words illegible] 1623 Second Avenue, near my place, or Bancroft 40 West 72d Street) If I dont (sic) hear from you I shall expect your ring around 6 30 on Friday Dec. 11th and I am looking forward to seeing you and your friends. Cordially yours". Reik has crossed off a portion of the imprinted address and written: "51" and "86th Street." BARTHOLD FLES (1902-1989) was an author, translator, publisher and literary agent in New York City. American psychologist THEODOR REIK (1888-1969), who had been 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 creased with folds, lower horizontal fold at the upper portions of "Theodor" and the mid-portions of "Reik". Pinhead-size stain at upper right blank margin. Fine condition.
