Sources & Early Printing History of Chairman Mao’s Quotations

This article on the textual history, first printings, and early binding varients of the first several editions of the “Little Red Book” discusses textual variations in the first three Chinese editions, as well as early editions in English and other languages. It is supplemented by brief bibliographical citations for the first five volumes, as well as a number of illustrations showing printing details, wrappers, and errata notes. (An earlier, abridged version appeared in Antiquarian Book Review.)
