BORN, Wolfgang

Summit, NJ: CIBA Pharmaceutical Products, January 1946

First edition. Softcover. 6 x 9 inches (15 x 23 cm). Offset printed. pp. [2], 203-236 (it is a freestanding item but the page sequence seems to come from the whole volume). Good+ cond. (light ext. wear only).

Somewhat curious in that it was part of a pharmaceutical company's publishing program (the title and cover clearly originated in house), but Wolfgang Born was a real scholar. Cited in John MacGregor's THE DISCOVERY OF THE ART OF THE INSANE (334) as a good source for a brief history of the study of psychiatric art.
