Crane, Stephen - The Red Badge of Courage - D. Appleton & Co: New York, 1896 - First Edition / Second Printing - 1896 on the title page, page opposite of the title page has an advertisement for The Red Badge of Courage, page four, line eleven, has the bank for bunk error, page 225 last line with a tic mark and has battered but not yet broken type, and 4 pages at rear with ads for books by A. Conan Doyle and Gilbert Parker's Best Books. He vaguely desired to walk around and around the body and stare; the impulse of the living to try to read in dead eyes the answer to the question.
The book is soiled, shelf worn, has tanning to the spine, scattered stains and spotting. Internally there is a name neatly penned on the front paste down and a thin strip of a newspaper on the rear paste down, else the interior is clean and free of markings. A solid example of this monumentally important work of Civil War fiction.
This is one of the earliest editions of this title with the Doyle and Parker ads at the rear. Basis for the rather good 1951 adaptation which was directed by John Huston and starred Audie Murphy and Bill Mauldin. All books which are in dust jackets will be mailed with a clear archival dust jacket protector fitted.
