About this Item

First edition and First Printing. 8vo, publisherís original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and 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 good and honest copy showing some use, but otherwise well preserved. The dustjacket with some evidence of age-wear at the extremities and with a chip at the bottom of the spine panel, the bottom of the dustjacket sometime trimmed slightly to clean the bottom edge. 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.
