Mao Zedong: MAO ZEDONG SHICI SANSHIJIU SHOU. (Thirty-Nine Poems by Mao Zedong). Shanghai, 1977. 1, 28 folded leaves, Chinese-style. 34x23 cm. Stitched, cloth case.
Luxurious woodblock edition printing of 39 of Chairman Mao's poems composed at various times from the 1920s to the early 1960s. They were published in August 1977, nearly one year after his death and probably intended as a poignant memorial for the first anniversary. As a further contribution to Mao's memory, the poems were printed in the large characters that were used in books especially printed for the Chairman in the final years of his life when his eyesight was failing. Such editions were printed in small numbers. A fine copy in excellent condition in the original cloth case. In Chinese. Rare.
