    Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. xii, [1], 145 pages. Seventh printing, March 1968. Signed by Viktor Frankl on half title. With signature of former owner, place, and date inked to front pastedown: Acadia, Nov. 1968; and his stamp top right of half title. Some 40 years later the owner wrote this note at the foot of the title page: "In 1967 (?1968), Dr Frankl gave a lecture on Logotherapy at Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada. I was there, and was greatly impressed by this man, his experiences and ideas. I spoke to him after the lecture, bought his book (this one) and asked if he would autograph it for me, which he did" [parentheses his. Frankl delivered the November 1968 Hayward lecture at Acadia. The only other book signed by him from this event that we've seen is a paperback copy of The Doctor and the Soul, warmly inscribed to Constance Hayward the endower of the lectures.] Silver spine titles dulled; rear panel of original jacket was pasted to rear free endpaper - the panel now loose, with dry browned glue evidence to it and endpaper. Now with an authentic (not facsimile) complete, unclipped jacket from another copy of the seventh printing, with light sunning to spine. Signed by Author(s).

    True first edition of Frankl's classic work, which was later titled Man's Search For Meaning. Octavo, original wrappers. Association copy, inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the half-title page, "Für Frau Grete Krotschak in herzlicher Freundschaft V. E. Frankl 6/9/46." Which translates, "For Ms. Grete Krotschak in cordial friendship V. E. Frankl 6/9/46." The recipient, Grete Krotschak served as the maid of honor at Frankl's wedding with Eleonore Elly Katharina Schwindt. (Frankl: Gesammelte Werke, Bd. 1, 2005, S. 159). Frankl was freed from Türkheim in April 1945, with this example signed a little over one year later. In very good condition, spine with light restoration. An exceptional association copy, most rare and desirable signed and inscribed of the true first edition of this work. Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America. "An enduring work of survival literature" (New York Times).
