In 1913, C.G. Jung started a unique self- experiment that he called his confrontation with the unconscious an engagement with his fantasies in a waking state, which he charted in a series of notebooks referred to as The Black Books . These intimate writings shed light on the further elaboration of Jung's personal cosmology and his attempts to embody insights from his self- investigation into his life and personal relationships. The Red Book drew on material recorded from 1913 to 1916, but Jung actively kept the notebooks for many more decades. Presented in a magnificent, seven-volume boxed collection featuring a revelatory essay by noted Jung scholar Sonu Shamdasani--illuminated by a selection of Jung's vibrant visual works--and both translated and facsimile versions of each notebook, The Black Books offer a unique portal into Jung's mind and the origins of analytical psychology.
