Description:
Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1951. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears, bookplate. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Jacket design by Michael Mitchell. Photograph of Salinger by Lotte Jacobi. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, one of the nicest examples extant. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood… Read more

Description:
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1951. First edition, first printing. This is a remarkably well-preserved copy, with the eye-catching jacket, usually so prone to fading, here retaining the original vivid red of the original design. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With dust jacket, designed by Michael Mitchell. Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco and cloth slipcase and matching chemise. A very nice copy indeed, clean and square, edges lightly foxed, endpapers a little browned, in a lovely example of the dust jacket, tips nicked, extremities lightly rubbed, couple of short closed tears with small tape repair to verso, not price-clipped, the notoriously fugitive red exceptionally bright and fresh.
