The Haskell F. Norman copy of Freud's classic study of the patient he gave the name "der Wolfsmann".
Freud first published this case history in the fourth of his series of collected papers on the theory of neuroses, Sammlung kleiner Schriften zur Neurosenlehre (1918).
It is "the most elaborate and important of his case histories, [and] provided conclusive evidence of the existence of the infantile sexuality by illustrating the uncovering of infantile neuroses through analysis of later adult ones. The patient, a young Russian aristocrat, had been severely neurotic since a bout of gonorrhoea at the age of seventeen. During analysis, Freud discovered that his patient had developed a temporary wolf phobia at the age of four after exposure to various sexual incidents, which was then followed by an obsessional neurosis with religious content that lasted until he was ten. Freud used this case as support for his criticisms of Jung and Adler, and it also played a part in his later break with Rank" (Norman F95, this copy being Norman F107).
Inscribed copies of this important study are extremely rare.
