Freud, Jung, and Hall the King-Maker: The Historical Expedition to America  (1909) by Saul Rosenzweig

1992. Seattle: Hogrefe & Huber Publishers, also states St. Louis: Rana House Press. First Edition. Hardcover with dj in Very good condition. This came from a personal library as indicated by neat name stamp inside the front cover and removable label at lower spine. 

In 1909, Freud and Jung sailed to the USA to lecture at Clark University, at the invitation of G. Stanley Hall, the founder of the American Psychology Association. These lectures attracted many famous intellectual figures of the time, including William James. During the trip, Freud, Jung, and James all stayed at Hall's house. This book provides a remarkably intimate inside look at these personalities, their ideas and their interaction, and their broader influence on the times. Sources not hitherto available have been utilized, e.g., Freud's travel diary, on deposit in the restricted portion of the Library of Congress. Similar sources have been utilized for the contributions of Jung, Hall, and James. By examining the impact of Freud on James, an unrecognized romantic friendship during the last fifteen years of James's life has been disclosed.
