Item Description: Little Brown, Boston, 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. 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. Housed in a custom clamshell box. An exceptional example. 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 was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.". Bookseller Inventory # 4034

Item Description: Little, Brown, Boston, 1951. Hardcover. First Edition. Salinger's classic first book, a coming-of-age novel that has influenced successive generations of young people with its adolescent hero's rejection of the "phoniness" of the adult world around him combined with the authenticity of his voice. Salinger's book retains the freshness it had when first published, and it stands as one of the great fictional accomplishments of 20th century American literature, included on every list of the 100 best novels of the century, and listed as number 2 on the Radcliffe list and number 6 on the Waterstone's list. Minor foxing to top and bottom edges of text block; offsetting to hinges from binder's glue; a very near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with offsetting to the front flap, tanning to the spine, slight rubbing to the spine folds and light wear to the crown. A very nice copy with distinguished provenance: it was a gift from publisher Alfred A. Knopf to a young writer who was interviewing him for a biography, and who later went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction in the 1980s. Letter of provenance available.

Item Description: Boston Little, Brown and Company 1951, 1951. First edition and first printing and in the first issue dustjacket. 8vo, publisherís original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket featuring Salingerís photo on rear cover credited to Lotte Jacobi and $3 price correctly positioned on front flap. 277 pp. A well preserved copy, the black cloth with no fading and with the gilt bright, just some typical evidence of age or use, the text clean and fresh, an old unobtrusive crease to the lower corner section of the half-title, the scarce first issue jacket attractive with some inevitable edge-wear, a little bit of chipping, rubbing or mellowing and evidence of use. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF AN AMERICAN ICONIC WORK AND A 20TH CENTURY LITERARY CLASSIC. J.D. Salingerís first and still, most famous work. Salinger tapped into a common and necessary theme in American literature with his unhappy teenage character, Holden Caulfield, who runs away from his boarding school as part of his disgust with 'phoniness'. Caufield's feelings and the idiom in which he communicates them have made the book a symbol of purity and sensitivity to generations of readers and has insured that it will remain a particularly coveted title in modern literature. This is a very fresh and appealing copy, attractive jackets on this title are often extensively repaired or restored, but this copy if fully original and authentic and remains very handsome in spite of some minor wear and aging.
