About this Item: Peking: Chinese People's Liberation Army, the 1201 Printing Factory for General Political Department, August 1965., 1965. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Third (i.e. first complete) edition of one of the most frequently reprinted books ever published, second only to the Bible. QUOTATIONS OF CHAIRMAN MAO (August 1965) has its half-title printed in red ink, title-page in red and green inks, portrait of Chairman Mao (printed in brown) with original tissue guard intact, and complete with Lin Biao's calligraphic endorsement also printed in brown ink (the printing error which occurred in the 1964 version now corrected); then follows a letterpress introduction (1/3) also signed with Lin Biao's name, a table of contents (1/2 listing 33 chapters), and the text itself (1/270) + colophon leaf at the end. 16mo now measuring 5 x 3.5 inches page size, with blank fly-leaves at front and back, original headbands at top and bottom of spine intact, cloth-backed plain white semi-stiff paper covers (as issued) inserted into a flexible red vinyl plastic binding with the Chinese title and a Red Star embossed onto the front cover. The binding and text leaves are lightly soiled (dusty) and a little stained (chiefly along the blank margins, but not seriously). Pasted down onto the front free endpaper is a printed PRESENTATION slip in red ink "For the Comrades who Participate in the Second National Olympics" and dated below by "The Second National Olympics Committee of the People's Republic of China, September 28th, 1965". This also bears an ink ownership name of Wang Run Zeng written in the lower left margin. As such, this copy is dated within one month of its very first printing, and considering that it is this version which finalized the text of Mao's book, this version which was subsequently reprinted and translated hundreds upon hundreds of times, it is of very special importance and a serious rarity. The original publishing history of Mao's LITTLE RED BOOK is partly obscured and not well known because of its rarity and having been so widely reprinted over many years. First published in May 1964 'for internal use only' as a pocket handbook of inspirational reading for members of the People's Liberation Army, the book contains short segments taken from Mao's speeches and published writings. Demand within the army required the entire book to be reprinted several times in 1965 so a second ediiton was produced in March 1965 with two additional chapters and in August 1965 this third edition was published adding a thirty-third chapter and thus setting the final version of the text for all subsequent reprints. Early copies of this book contain a one-page facsimile of Lin's calligraphic endorsement for everyone to study Chairman Mao's writings, but following accusations of Lin's unsuccessful efforts to assassinate Mao in September 1971, the government required everyone to tear out this page in an effort to erase his name from memory. Subsequent copies printed after 1971 no longer include any mention of Lin and most of the small number of Chinese language copies which do survive have had this page removed. In fact, to be in possession of a Little Red Book and not remove the Lin page could be a definite liability during the Cultural Revolution after 1971 as it might suggest a misplaced loyalty to an accused traitor. Being the original printing of the final text to the LRB this also became the model for all translations (which began in multi-million copy editions in 1966). It is rarely available, and especially nice to have with a presentation slip so soon after publication marking the 2nd Chinese Olympics. Seller Inventory # mao002

About this Item: [N.p. (probably Beijing) Central Intelligence Bureau of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, 1964. First Edition of Chairman Mao’s "Little Red Book" MAO, Zedong. Mao zhuxi yulu [in Chinese]. [Quotations of Chairman Mao]. [N.p. (probably Beijing): Central Intelligence Bureau of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, [May 1964]. First edition, first state, (with the ting) of Chairman Mao’s "Little Red Book," after the Bible the most printed text in the world. Sixteenmo (5 7/16 x 3 15/16 inches; 138 x 100 mm.). [4], 2 (preface), 2 (table of contents, with thirty chapters), 250, [2, blank] pp. Complete with frontispiece portrait of Mao and Lin Biao’s calligraphic endorsement leaf. Half-title printed in red, title in red and green. Wire-stitched in the original printed wrappers, small glue residue around stitches. A few blue ink spots on front cover due to previous owner's homemade dust jacket ink soaking through a bit to front cover. Edges bumped. A very good copy. Housed in a custom black cloth clamshell case. This first state, of which around 50,000-60,0000 copies were printed, was never intended for sale, but issued to members of the military as inspirational reading. By 1967, the book had been translated into more that thirty-six languages and an estimated 720 million copies had been printed. Now, thirty-five years later, almost certainly more than one billion copies have printed worldwide. The printing history of Mao’s "Little Red Book" (actually entitled "Quotations from the Chairman Mao") is partially obscured due to its great rarity and the fact that the very earliest printing is undated. This original first printing of selections from Mao Zedong's (1893-1976) writings and speeches was originally conceived and produced in May 1964 for military use as a pocket handbook of inspirational reading, intended by army General Lin Biao (1907-1971) to flatter Chairman Mao and improve his own advancement within the Party. Clearly even he never realized the popularity and impact of this anthology. The initial demand proved so popular that it was reprinted several times in 1965: with two additional chapters added to the second edition (March 1965) and a final thirty-third chapter added to the third edition (August 1965). By 1966, it was decided that every citizen must possess a copy (as a symbol of loyalty to the Party) and a massive printing project was created to translate the text in every language where there would be Communist followers or sympathizers. This first edition is slightly taller in height than all the later editions and collates with fewer letterpress pages. The book originally included a calligraphic endorsement in facsimile of Lin Biao’s handwriting and also has a two-page introductory preface by Lin, telling of the book’s importance as a guide for daily life and moral precept. But, following Lin’s alleged unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Mao in September 1971, an effort was made to obliterate his existence from recent memory, and everyone was instructed to tear out this endorsement page (and sometimes also the preface). Neither was included in copies printed from the end of 1971 onwards. Remarkably, our copy retains the endorsement leaf, a fact which would certainly have jeopardized the safety of its owner.

Half-title printed in red, title in red and green. Variant binding b in full red vinyl textured plastic, incised with the title and a star, being a separate protective jacket where stiff plain white cardboard covers are inserted adjacent to a linen backed spine with sewn head and tailbands. A bit of foxing, otherwise very good. In a black cloth clamshell case. This first state, of which around 50,000-60,0000 copies were printed, was never intended for sale, but issued to members of the military as inspirational reading. It is only in the variant b that the well-known red vinyl plastic cover first appeared. It is said that the red vinyl copies were printed at the same time to be a sturdier version. The paper wrappers was meant to be distributed to high-ranking officers while the red vinyl copies were meant for use by brigade teams of up to eight men. By 1967, the book had been translated into more that thirty-six languages and an estimated 720 million copies had been printed.
