Beige overs have some darking at the edge and fraying at the top and bottom of the spine, which are also dark. Binding straight, pages clean and unmarked. An ad for the novel faces the title page (this as is not present in the first copies). The work "bank" instead of "bunk" on page 4. Perhaps the type is not as clear as it should be on the last line of page 225. The four-page ad section begins with "Gilbert Parker's Best Books," but closes with an ad that is not present in the first copies (although no ad for The Red Badage of Courage appears, which is true in later printings). First Edition, second state. 1896 appears on the title page, First copies appeared in 1895, which is the date on the copyright page. Rare and collectible. (Note I also have a first editon replica for sale). Seller Inventory # 010376

About this Item: New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1896. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This is a mixed state of the first edition of Stephen Crane's classical tale of human commitment and endurance, THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, with a 1896 date on the title page (the original publication date of the first edition is 1865) but also with two of the clear first edition points in the text. To me the date outweighs the internal points. The internal points are the word "bank" instead of "bunk" on line 11, p. 4, and "Gilbert Parker's Best Books" as the title of the ads at the end. On the other hand, there is misaligned type in the word "congratulated" on p. 225. This book has the ornate title page in red and black and the top edge is stained yellow. The text itself is clean, though showing some slight yellowing at the tops of the pages. The hinges are cracked a bit but not anywhere enough to detach the covers, and the spine is darkened from use. There is some fraying and chipping at both the top and bottom of the spine ends. Overall, though, this book still gives a good appearance, and the fraying of the spine and cracked hinges can be easily repaired. This book has no dust jacket. This book is scarce, and it still presents well enough to be quite collectable, so here's a chance to get this classic at a price far below what a first edition would cost. Seller Inventory # 00355

About this Item: D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1895. Hard Cover. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. First Edition, Second Issue. Beige buckram with red and black lettering and decorative gilt around the letter "T" on the front cover. Clay-coated endpapers. Last few signatures are loose, but holding. The boards are edge-worn and soiled. Small amount of cloth loss at the tail of the spine, affecting the publisher's name. Book shop label at top of front pastedown. Previous owner name neatly scripted at top of blank page preceding the title page. 233 pages plus publisher's ads. This copy shows the year 1895 on both the title page and copyright page (1894 also on copyright page). Not a true first printing because of the following points of issue: In the ads at the back of the book for the publisher's other titles, The Red Badge of Courage is listed as the first entry, thus not a first issue of the first printing in 1895. The first issue of the 1895 printing also featured an unbroken last line on page 225. On that page for this second issue, the word congratulated line breaks after the letter "u." Still a very scarce 1895 printing, a slight variation in the first print run. Seller Inventory # 04529

About this Item: New York. D. Appleton and Company. 1895., 1895. First Edition with matching dates of 1895 on the title and copyright pages. Second printing with "The Red Badge of Courage" listed as the first title in the 4 pages of Appleton Ads at the rear of the book. Also with the battered type in the word "lated" on the last line of p. 225. Still a very scarce copy published in the first edition year of 1895. With the previous owner's name in ink at the top of the free front endpaper: "W.H. Forbes. Milton 1897." Perhaps the forebear of this distinguished Forbes: William Hathaway Forbes was born in Milton, Massachusetts in 1902 and attended Milton Academy and Harvard College. Forbes joined the staff of the Harvard Fatigue Laboratory (the "LabÓ) in 1930 and in 1935 served as a member of the LabÕs International High Altitude Expedition to Aucanquilcha in the Chilean Andes, an expedition staffed by David Bruce Dill (then the ÒunofficialÓ director of the Lab) and Ancel Keyes (the expedition leader). This expedition was undertaken to study blood chemistry, the effects of exercise on respiration and circulation, and mental impairments at high altitudes. A relatively worn and soiled binding; in the original finely woven linen cloth stamped in red and black on the front boards and on the spine. The illuminated letter "T" is very brightly gilded. There is light wear and rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine ends but without any loss of cloth. The spine is darkened and lightly stained as are the front and rear boards. Internally the book is clean and tight with clean light brown endpapers. The front hinge is very good, but the rear hinge is beginning to split. First Edition with matching dates of 1895 on the title and copyright pages. Second printing with "The Red Badge of Courage" listed as the first title in the 4 pages of Appleton Ads at the rear of the book. Also with the battered type in the word "lated" on the last line of p. 225. Still a very scarce copy published in the first edition year of 1895. Seller Inventory # 7099

About this Item: D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1895. Condition: Fine. First edition. A Fine copy of the book with the spine very slightly toned and a pea-sized rub mark on the coated front end-paper where it looks like an early price was erased. Despite these two very minor flaws, this is a bright, sharp, unread copy of the book and about as fine as one could hope to find it in the absence of the very scarce dust jacket. First printing with yellow top-stain, undamaged type on p. 225 and no mention of this title in four pages of ads at the rear. BAL 4071.The author's realistic portrayal of a young soldier's shame after fleeing a civil war battle. It was selected as one of Merle Johnson's "High Spots of American Literature." The author's second book after "Maggie" and easily his best work. Included in "Men at War: The Best War Stories of All Time" by Ernest Hemingway, who wrote that this novel "is one of the finest books of our literature, and I include it entire because it is all as much of a piece as a great poem is." Housed in a custom cloth clamshell. Fine. Seller Inventory # 1520

About this Item: D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1895. First edition, first printing with page [235] advertising the three works of Gilbert Parker's Best Books, and the last page of advertisements (page 238) ending with The Land of the Sun, by Christian Reid; last gathering, including ads on laid paper. Octavo, original publisher's tan cloth. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. From the library of noted collector Donald G. Drapkin, with his bookplate, contemporary name on the endpaper. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. An abbreviated version of The Red Badge of Courage was first serialized in The Philadelphia Press in December 1894. This version of the story, which was culled to 18,000 words by an editor specifically for the serialization, was reprinted in newspapers across America, establishing Crane's fame. Crane biographer John Berryman wrote that the story was published in at least 200 small city dailies and approximately 550 weekly papers. In October 1895, a version, which was 5,000 words shorter than the original manuscript, was printed in book form by D. Appleton & Company. "Stephen Crane, with no more military experience than his lively imagination could cull from Battles and Leaders of the Civil War and from Tolstoy, told so graphically how a raw recruit feels in battle that The Red Badge of Courage must be regarded as the first artistic approach to the war. It pictures no historical figure or event, except that Chancellorsville is its setting, but its sense of the helplessness and meaninglessness of the common soldier, maneuvered by superiors and circumstance, is a brilliant achievement in impression. Its illusion of authentic experience has made it a minor classic of the war" (Leisy, 158-59). Seller Inventory # 12092

About this Item: New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1895, 1895. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine and cover in red, black, and gold, yellow top-stain, brown endpapers. With the restored dust jacket. In a red quarter morocco and cloth solander case with chemise. A very bright, crisp copy with a little tanning at the spine associated with some wear to the dust jacket., an excellent copy in the rubbed and creased dust jacket which has been professionally restored. Bookplate of Carroll Atwood Wilson. First edition, first printing, first issue; exceptionally rare in the dust jacket. The Red Badge of Courage is considered one of the most influential works in American literature. The novel, a depiction of the cruelty of the American Civil War, features a young recruit who overcomes initial fears to become a hero on the battlefield. The book 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 American Naturalism. The story was successfully filmed in 1951, with war hero turned actor Audie Murphy in the starring role. Seller Inventory # 49515
