Item Description: Little, Brown, Boston, 1951. Hardcover. Later printing. Inscribed by the author. 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 angry and alienated voice. Salinger's book retains much of the freshness it had when first published, and it stands as one of the great fictional accomplishments of 20th century American literature. Salinger left New York City in 1953 and became increasingly reclusive in subsequent years. He visited the New Yorker offices in 1959 and signed a few books for people there on that day, but very seldom after that appeared in public and almost never signed books. Signed copies of Catcher are one of the true rarities of modern American literature. This copy is inscribed by Salinger: "To Pearl Bsharah, with best wishes from J.D. Salinger/ The New Yorker/ April 13, 1959." Bsharah worked at The New Yorker. Fourteenth printing, with slight chipping to spine ends; near fine in a fine (restored) later printing, price-clipped dust jacket. In custom clamshell case. Bookseller Inventory # 030804

Item Description: Little, Brown & Company, Boston, 1952. First Edition. Salinger, J.D. THE CATCHER IN THE RYE. Signed. Boston: Little Brown, 1952. A fine SIGNED copy of the March, 1952 reprint of the first edition. [The first issue was July, 1951]. 8vo., 277pp., black cloth, gilt. Salinger's remarkable first book, neatly signed in black fountain pen at the top of the title page. An excellent example of Salinger's elusive signature - The binding is fine; the dustwrapper very good or better with the $3.00 price present & nine reviews on the back panel replacing Salinger's photo after the first few early printings at his insistence. Custom clamshell case in very fine condition. The probable High Spot in Modern American Lit collecting, "The Catcher In The Rye is undoubtedly a 20th-century classic. It struck a popular note, particularly with young readers, who strongly identified with Holden Caulfield and his yearning for lost innocence. Salinger's novel was, and continues to be, a phenomenal success" (Parker, 300). "This novel is a key-work of the nineteen-fifties in that the theme of youthful rebellion is first adumbrated in it, though the hero, Holden Caulfield, is more a gentle voice of protest, unprevailing in the noise, than a militant world-changer. The Catcher in the Rye was a symptom of a need, after a ghastly war and during a ghastly pseudo-peace, for the young to raise a voice of protest against the failures of the adult world. The young used many voices-anger, contempt, self-pity-but the quietest, that of a decent perplexed American adolescent, proved the most telling" (Anthony Burgess, 99 Novels , 53-4). Signed by Author.
