[SEC323a3](a) German Edition:
[SEC323a4]1901 In J. L. Pagel's Biographisches Lexicon hervorragender ärzte des neunzehnten. Fahrhunderts [Biographical Lexicon of Eminent Doctors of the Nineteenth Century]. Berlin and Vienna, Column 545.
[SEC323a5]It appears that this has never been reprinted and that this translation, by James Strachey, is the first into English.
[SEC323a6]Internal evidence shows that this must have been written in the autumn of 1899. It is of interest as showing the view which Freud expected to have taken of his activities on the eve of the publication of the work which was to revolutionize his position in the scientific world. The numerous abbreviations in the original have been expanded.
