The alchemical rare book collection of C.G. Jung

In: International Journal of Jungian Studies

Following the publication of The red book, the Foundation of the Works of C.G. Jung is currently working on the preservation and accessibility of Jung's private library for further research purposes. In 2010, in collaboration with the library of ETH Zurich, the Foundation started a digitizing project with the aim to publish (on http://www.e-rara.ch) Jung's valuable rare book collection on alchemy, magic and the Kabbalah. This article provides background information on how and why Jung assembled his collection of rare books in the 1930s, and what the digitizing project offers to Jungian scholars.
