Librarian: Olive Mason
The CG Jung Society of Western Australia has a library
which is housed privately and open for the benefit of members. The library
was set up in 1964 with a gift of books
from the Kristine Mann Library of the New York CG Jung Foundation for
Analytical Psychology. At that time the New York Foundation was publishing
books written by some of the senior Jungian analysts who had been trained by Dr
Jung. Mrs CW Dunn of New York very generously sent new copies to us as gifts. We
bought the English translations of volumes of Jung's Collected Works as they
became available, including Mysterium Coniunctionis which was
published in 1963. These were of course all quality hardback copies.
At that time we also began purchasing the relevant journals that were
available. Later Mrs Rix Weaver donated her collection of journals to the library
and we now have almost complete sets of these. We have the first Spring
journal published in 1941 (during wartime). The first
edition of the Journal of Analytical Psychology was edited by Michael Fordham
and published in 1956. Our collection starts with Volume 1 Number 2 and we have
most of the volumes published since then.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU:
Dr Donald Broadribb was a Jungian Analyst and Life Member of the Society, and his wife has kindly donated many of his books to our Library.
George Tripp and Rob Routley also generously donated a large selection of books
to the Jung Society Library.
And there have been other individual donors. We are much indebted to them.
The library offers the full spectrum of Jungian thought including current
Jungian Journals as well as a wide range of Jungian topics by individual author.
Books on mythology, symbols and alchemy as well as Reference books
and Anthologies can aid in individual research and enjoyment.
In addition to the books, the library has a collection of audio tapes - mostly
of lectures given locally. We also have a few videos. Members can borrow up to
4 books, 2 tapes and 1 video for one month. Renewal can be made by telephone
(if the item is not required by another borrower). Please return the books on time.
The Library is open on the first Sunday of each month from 2pm - 5pm.
You do not have to be a Library Member to visit the library and have
