Review by:
Martin A. Silverman

It is so easy to forget the psychoanalytic pioneers of yesteryear, as we plunge ahead during the ongoing evolution of our profession. The Hanns Sachs Library and Archives of the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, on the other hand, represents an effort to keep the memory of our collegial forebears alive as we move forward and away from them. It is, among other things, a repository of an enormous collection of books, letters, photographs, and memorabilia that can keep us in contact with those who inhabit the historical world of psychoanalysis.

It is only intermittently, and far too infrequently, that BPSI brings our attention to some of the contents of its treasure trove. Ten years ago, I reported on such an event, namely, the publication of a slim volume containing photographs taken by Edward Bibring, which had remained hidden in the BPSI Archives until 2005. I had experienced from having made the acquaintance of a good number of the very earliest contributors to the profession that I feel so privileged to have been part of during its more recent decades. I closed by expressing hope that we would be given additional opportunities to meet those early progenitors of psychoanalysis.

Dan Jacobs has granted my request—by once again affording us entry into that world.
