MAO ZEDONG (TSE TUNG):
Mao Zhu Xi Yu Lu (Quotations of Chairman Mao). No place or date [probably Beijing, Central Intelligence Bureau of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, May 1964].
16mo. Size: 10 x 13,8 cm. Pp. (viii), 2, 2, 250. Including half title, title printed in red and green, front portrait of Mao, one page with Lin Biao's calligraphic endorsement, two pages introduction with Lin Biao's name and two pages of content. Text in Chinese throughout. Original printed wrappers printed in red and black, spine partly gone. Some waterstaining to the wrappers, the preliminaries and first few leaves and light marginal staining at the end of the book. Housed in a specially made red cloth box. First complete edition of Maos' Little Red Book, one of the world's most reprinted books. It is of the scarce original Chinese printing which is difficult to identify since it does not contain a dated colophon but it's distinguishable from other editions by its slightly larger size, by containing thirty chapters only and ending at page 250. It was produced in May 1964 for internal use only, created at the suggestion of General Lin Biao to flatter Mao and help his own advancement within the Chinese Communist Party. However Lin Biao was assassinated in 1971 and then the endorsement leaf was ordered to be torn out in all copies as a sign of loyalty to Mao. Subsequently copies printed after 1971 do not include any mention of Lin and most copies which do survive of this first edition have the leaf removed.
