The Red Badge of Courage
by Stephen Crane

First appearing as a newspaper serial in 1894, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane quickly became a Civil War classic. The novel tells the story of Henry Fleming, a teenage private with boyish dreams of the glory of war, who then struggles with fear and disillusionment as war’s life-and-death realities set in.

This enduring story puts a human perspective into the destruction and chaos of war, and is considered to be a wonderfully realistic portrayal of the conflict’s battles. Ernest Hemingway described the book as “one of the finest books of our literature.”

The book made Stephen Crane, at the age of 24, an overnight success. This Civil War novel went through ten editions in the first year. Since its initial publication, it has never been out of print.

Crane’s words and Künstler’s images will be sure to last for years to come.

From thundering cavalry and cannon to soldiers marching to battle and standing at attention, Crane’s masterpiece comes to vivid life with Künstler’s breathtaking full-color illustrations. As the perfect finishing touch, Mort Künstler has personally hand signed them.

Magnificently bound in genuine leather to last for generations.

This edition of 100 artist’s copies are beautifully bound in genuine leather and printed on archival paper with sewn bindings. Each hubbed spine is accented with 22 kt. gold. These books are not sold in bookstores.
