Description

Freud Sigmund Sigmund Freud Signed, Autographed Postcard From ViennaAutographed and Signed Postcard, 5.75" x 4.25". Penned in German, in the hand of Sigmund Freud, and signed as "freud". Dated "Wien 2.X.34" (Vienna October 2, 1934), and mailed to E. Kempster in Lugano Switzerland. Near fine with bold writing and strong vibrant ink.In January 1933, the Nazi Party took control of Germany, and Freud's books were prominent among those they burned and destroyed. Freud remarked to Ernest Jones: "What progress we are making. In the Middle Ages they would have burned me. Now, they are content with burning my books." Freud continued to underestimate the growing Nazi threat and remained determined to stay in Vienna, even following the Anschluss of 13 March 1938, in which Nazi Germany annexed Austria, and the outbreaks of violent antisemitism that ensued. This postcard was dated from 1934, during the final years Freud remained in Vienna.In Vienna during the 19th century, the script that was taught in schools was quite different from that in the non-German speaking parts of the world, and different as well from the German script of the present-day. This style of script is known as Kurrentschrift, and it was used in the same way that (some of us) use cursive today. Sigmund Freud, for instance, wrote letters, scribbled analyst's notes and signed his name, in Kurrentschrift. Although Freud is known to have signed his name in other ways, he often signed "freud." The capital and lowercase "F" of Kurrentschrift are very similar in form, but not identical. The letter is shown translated below: "I have received your lovely letter and thank you for it. Yours, Freud" This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.WE PROVIDE IN-HOUSE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!
