There is an English translation as an appendix. (Some people have complained about it, preferring a "pull out" that could be open while looking at
the facsimile, without flipping back and forth, or having to wrestle the almost 5-kilo book onto a photocopier to make your own pull-out.)
Although this facsimile quality edition is new, when people ask about reading Jung's text (howdy, Vanitas!), lots of people have read The Red
Book, or parts of it. It's been studied by Jung scholars and quoted by them for a long time.
It's not the text that's news; it's the artwork. Even that was, I think, partially documented, but this edition shows it off, as it deserves to be
seen. And how the handwritten text complements the art is important for the overall effect, too - even if you need a translation, like me.
