About This Item

The first printing of a Modern First Classic. Internally clean and sound; the the spine is badly faded and the rear top panel has a missing corner. A few pages are edge worn. FFPP has a previous owners name. But a good copy of the scarce first printing for rebinding.

Synopsis

Published in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye has become a common part of high school and college curricula throughout the English-speaking world and has been translated into all major languages. Since its publication with a $3.00 sticker, it has reportedly sold more than 65 million copies. The novel's antihero, Holden Caulfield, has become a cultural icon for teenage rebellion. Due to its liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality and teenage angst, it has frequently been met with censorship challenges in the United States making it one of the most challenged books of the 20th century.
