<br />
An unseen letter in which Sigmund Freud pointed out a 'Freudian slip' and accurately predicted the year of his death has emerged for sale. <br />
<br />
In the 1933 correspondence the neurologist refers to a "slip of the pen", or Freudian slip, when commenting on an error his addressee, Theodor Reik, made in their previous exchange. <br />
<br />
It appears Reik, a protege and close friend of Freud, mistakenly anticipated the publication of his next book. Where he meant to write 1934, he in fact wrote 1939. <br />
<br />
The letter is being sold by American dealer Lion Heart Autographs for £10,000.
