The Use of LSD in Psychotherapy and Alcoholism

Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, (1967).

Price: $100.00

Hardcover. First edition. Thick small quarto. 697pp. Bookplate and signature of a noted American psychologist on the front fly, spine cocked, thus very good in near fine dust jacket. Abramson was an allergist best known for his connection to the secret CIA organization MK-Ultra, which aided by a grant from the Geschickter Fund for Medical Research, a rather secretive organization that, in 1977, *The New York Times* reported had been used by the CIA as a conduit for distributing funds to medical researchers mostly for experimentation with LSD-25. Abramson gained some level of notoriety for being the physician associated with the mysterious death of Frank Olson, the scientist who fell from a hotel window under mysterious circumstances, after earlier being dosed with LSD without his permission. Netflix produced a six-part docudrama on the incident, called *Wormwood*, in 2017, with Bob Balaban as Abramson. This title is very uncommon in jacket.
