"The book is a remarkable blend of calligraphy and art; an illuminated manuscript that bears comparison with The Book of Kells and William Blake." Guardian.co.uk "It's true importance, however, will be to the western intellectual tradition as a whole." New Scientist "...a magnificent facsimile edition.." Salley Vickers, The Times "Now edited by Sonu Shamdasani, this is an exquisite facsimile. Jung's pioneering work on dreams and associative creativity comes to fulfilment in this intensely personal and revelatory study." Classics Christmas Round-up 2009 The Times
