Covers marked and edges some what worn other wise good. The book is remarkable for a number of reasons, Tom was the legendary psychoanalyst’s eccentric niece Martha, born Gertrud Martha Freud, who adopted a male first name. In her late twenties, Tom met the writer Jacob (Jankew) Seidmann, and the two had a daughter. In 1929, Jacob’s publishing venture failed and he committed suicide. Several months later, Tom too took her own life. She wrote and illustrated The Magic Boat during that final year.
