289pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Very good. The spine ends and edges of the covers are very gently bumped and rubbed. There is a previous owner's name on the front pastedown, and there is a small date in pen on the front of the rear flyleaf. The top corners of a handful of pages are a little dog eared. Occasional underlining in pencil throughout the pages. The dust jacket is torn in half and has multiple large losses, particularly from the jacket's spine.
Bollingen Series XXII. From the dust jacket- "In sections one and three Dr. Kerenyi discusses, first the primordial child in ancient times, and then the mythology of the Kore. In sections two and four Dr. Jung amplifies these subjects with detailed investigations of their psychological aspects."
