Mao Zedong. Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung. Beijing, 1966. With half-tone portrait frontispiece and facsimile plate of inscription by Lin Pao.
First English edition, signed by Chairman Mao alongside his portrait. While it is estimated that five billion copies of the "Little Red Book" were printed by the close of the 20th century, merely a handful were actually signed by Mao. According to a document included with the book, the volume was likely signed in December 1967, towards the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, when a delegation of the China-Albania friendship association visited Beijing.
