Original 1921 Copyright Rorschach Psychodiagnostics Complete Folio of 10

Regular price $225.00

This is the first set of original Rorschach tests I have actually seen in person, and they are really beautiful! And while one there are some later sets out there also published by Hans Huber, Bern and printed in Switzerland (they are noted with a "1921 copyright (renewed in 1948)" this is a much rarer, true early set. I was surprised by the thickness and weight of the board the ink blots are printed on, and with them neatly stacked up inside their folio, I at least feel quite transported to a psychologist's office in the 1920s, anxious about what images I might find in them! Great to pull out to analyze friends, or frame them all and hang as a grid in the office or study, where it would be interesting to see how one's perception of each changes over time depending on mood and circumstance.

The set includes 10 printed plates--five of them with shapes in various shades of grey and black, two in black and red, and three multi-colored. Photos document each plate, in order, including the back side of each. The whole set is in very good condition, with just a little bit of darkening around the edges from age, and a few very minor flaws, as documented. The folio itself is also in very good condition, with light wear around the edges and a piece of old clear tape on the lower front. Folio:  9 7/8" x 7 5/8" x 1". Each plate: 9 11/16" x 7 1/8" x 1/16.  Sold with an acetate protective cover wrap.
