International Journal of Sex-Economy and Orgone Research

Bound photocopy (all four volumes): $ 140.00
Also available individually. See above the Table of Contents for each individual issue (listed below).

According to a note on the title page of the inaugural issue, this journal was "The official organ of the International Institute of Sex-Economy and Orgone-Research," the original name of Reich's research organization in New York City. The journal's title page listed Wilhelm Reich, M.D. as Director and Theodore Wolfe, M.D. as Editor.

Four volumes of this journal--each comprising Numbers 1,2,3--were published regularly from 1942 to 1945 by the Orgone Institute Press, located at 157 Christopher Street in Manhattan. Subscriptions were $4.00 per year. (In 1947, two years after this journal ceased publication, Reich continued to publish his research in a subsequent publication called Annals of the Orgone Institute.)
