To Heinrich Zimmer
Dear Professor Zimmer, 12 December 1938
Your little book Weisheit I ndiens1 arrived safely and I also found in it your gladdening dedication which, however, keeps it a secret that everything I know comes from my mastery of not-knowing.
This is attested by the fact that I was born in 1875, the year of the pig.
I shall especially enjoy the “Sinnbilder” and will read “Die Geschichte vom Konig mit dem Leichnam”4 devoutly for the third time.
With cordial thanks and many good wishes for the coming festivities,
C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page
Note: Two of the chapters in Zimmer’s book. The second one is republished in The King and the. Corpse ( 1948}, pp. 202ff.
