Description:

"He felt that in this crisis his laws of life were useless.Whatever he had learned of himself was here of no avail"First Edition, First Printing ofStephen Crane's Masterpiece 'The Red Badge of Courage'CRANE, Stephen. The Red Badge of Courage. An Episode of the American Civil War. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1895.First edition, first printing, page 225 having "lated" in perfect type on last line, with p. [235] advertising three works by Gilbert Parker, and the last page of advertisements (p. [238]) ending with The Land of the Sun, by Christian Reid. Printed on laid paper with horizontal wire marks. Small octavo (7 3/16 x 4 7/8 inches; 183 x 123 mm.). [iv], 233, [1, blank], [4, ads] pp. Title-page printed in red and black.Publisher's pale yellow buckram over boards, front cover and spine stamped in red, black and gilt, tan coated end-papers, laid paper flyleaves, top edge stained yellow. Mild darkening, and very light rubbing to cloth at extremities. With the small leather bookplate of noted collector of Americana, John Stuart Groves, and its feint offset on front end-papers. Front free end-paper with a short tear on top margin and two very small chips on fore-edge. A near fine copy, chemised in a quarter crimson morocco slipcase, spine lettered in gilt."There has been much creasing of brows over this key book in any Crane collection, and for the most part deduction and discussion have focussed on the word congratulated on page 225. According to Merle Johnson, three states exist, indicated as follows: in the first, the half-word lated, in the last line of page 225, is perfect; in the second, the type at this point is mutilated; in the third, the type has been patched and the final letter d is out of perpendicular? Finally, it may be noted that the word bank on page 4, line 11, should be bunk. This mis-print persists in all Appleton editions until 1900." (Williams & Starrett, pp. 19/20).The Red Badge of Courage is a 1895 war novel by American author Stephen Crane. It is considered one of the most influential works in American literature. The novel, in which a young recruit in the American Civil War is faced by the cruelty of war, has made Crane an international success. Although he was born after the war and had not at the time experienced battle firsthand, the novel is considered an example of Realism.Stephen Crane (1871-1900) was an American poet, novelist, and short story writer. Crane began writing at the age of four and had published several articles by the age of 16. Having little interest in university studies, he left college in 1891 to work as a reporter and writer. Prolific throughout his short life, he wrote notable works in the Realist tradition as well as early examples of American Naturalism and Impressionism. He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation. Crane's first novel was the 1893 Bowery tale Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, generally considered by critics to be the first work of American literary Naturalism. He won international acclaim in 1895 for his Civil War novel The Red Badge of Courage, which he wrote without having any battle experience.Williams and Starrett 3; BAL 4071; Grolier, 100 American, 98.
