A human document, with an Introduction by Barbara Hannah, 8vo paperback, Schippert & Co, Zurich, s.d. [ 1967 ], XII-128 pp. with 12 original colored drawings under an envelope pasted on guard, and autograph text in flemish on 14 leaves (letters, poems) in another one. Full Tite : The healing influence of Active Imagination in a Specific Case of Neurosis [ Unique and exceptional copy with autograph manuscripts and 12 original drawings: Anna Marjula mystery solved ! ] Commentaire : Unique copy with 12 original colored symbolical drawings sometimes (3 of them with comments in english) and 14 leaves with manuscript text (3 letters and poems) in flemish. Most of this extra-material is not signed except three letters (two dated 13-5-73 and 28-10-74) signed 'Tante Han' or 'Hanna', clearly original work by 'Anna Marjula', pseudonym used to protect the identity of the author (The letter 'E'. On an envelop is written : 'These drawings illustrate the fifth conversation with the Great Mother pages 26-27'. Many early jungian analysts worked with Anna Marjula (Toni Wolff, Emma Jung or Barbara Hannah), but her real name remained unknown, until now (but we knew it was a pianist). Indeed, our research allowed us to identify the recipient, Ms. Parvati Chavoix-Jodjana ('Vati') but especially the author, who hides behind the pseudonym of Anna Marjula : the famous dutch pianist and composer Hanna Beekhuis (1889-1980) ! A newspaper clipping is joined on a postcard, (that we join), titled : 'Gouden medaille voor Hanna Beekhuis' and here's the translation : 'Gold medal for Hanna Beekhuis: Arnhem, 3 Oct. - The Dutch composer of chamber music works and songs, Hanna Beekhuis from Ellecom, who currently resides in Zurich, has won a gold medal and an honorary diploma with 'Reflet du Japon', a composition for viola and viola at an international competition held in Buenos Aires'. It is known she won this medal in 1961.Hanna Beekhuis resided in Zurich, and was previously in relationship with Carl Jung (28 letters or copy of letters between Jung and Hanna Beekhuis, from 1942 until 1960, would be kept in the ETH-Bibliothek). Barbara Hannah explains in her preface that 'Professor Jung had, however, once spoken to Anna of including it in a volume of case histories, and, as he died before he had collected the other cases, she was naturally disappointed'. We identify well the identical writing of 'Aunt Hanna' with that present on the handwritten drawings, and with the only autograph word reproduced in the work - 'Eve'.Our incredible copy comes from Parvati Chavoix-Jodjana, daughter of a famous javanese dancer in France, Raden Mas Jodjana (1893-1972) and his wife Raden Ayou. Hanna Beekhuis accompanied the dancer in the 1920s. Another interesting relation with Jungian Psychanalysis is that the Jodjana were friends with Kurt Binswanger and his wife Erica since 1935.Here's some translated extract on a signed letter : 'You said me that your Father has become your Guru. What is a guru ? [... ] Your father told me that he was a free thinker. I am that too but Christianity [ ... ] is still in blood'. In another one : 'The Jodjanas' have meant a lot to me in the course of my life, especially your father, [ ... ] your mother too'.
