About this Item: Little, Brown & Co, Boston, 1951. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First edition. A bright copy of this iconic work. Book Fine with a few spots on the top-edge of the page block, but clean and fresh throughout with bright gilt on the spine and appearing unread. In a Near Fine dust jacket with slight fading at the spine and touches of rubbing at the spine ends and corners. Nonetheless, a superior copy of a Salinger's masterpiece. This copy correct, with all relevant issue points. Salinger's novel was not the first coming-of-age story to highlight teenage angst, but it sits squarely as the pinnacle of those efforts. It offers Holden Caulfield's perspective on school, New York City, sexuality, family and friends, and, of course, phonies, with a subtext on alienation and loneliness running throughout the book. "In American writing, there are three perfect books, which seem to speak to every reader and condition: 'Huckleberry Finn,' 'The Great Gatsby,' and 'The Catcher in the Rye.' Of the three, only 'Catcher' defines an entire region of human experience: it is-in French and Dutch as much as in English-the handbook of the adolescent heart." (Adam Gopnik writing for "The New Yorker" Feb. 8, 2010). Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 2138

About this Item: 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 half morocco 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.". Seller Inventory # 4034

About this Item: Little, Brown, Boston, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 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.

About this Item: Little, Brown & Co, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. One of the most significant works of 20th century fiction – a true classic. Fine in Near Fine first issue jacket(original and unrestored). ******* The book has minor spots to the top edge, otherwise fine. The jacket is truly great, but let me walk through the minor faults first – a modicum of chipping to the spine head, two corners, and along a bit of the top front panel, a tiny closed tear at the upper front panel, a bit rubbed at the folds, and perhaps a most modest general patina of age endemic to all objects on Earth that haven’t been hermetically sealed. That about covers it. There is no fading to the spine or really elsewhere for that matter. Many other booksellers would probably call this an “else Fine” jacket, but my aim for brutal and probably self-injurious accuracy beckons me to stay with Near Fine. Now one can take a jeweler’s eye to any jacket and find any number of faults, but make no mistake - this is a fresh copy and priced to make your dream of owning this classic a reality. Don’t forego buying a new car or paying your child’s college tuition in order to buy an equal copy for much more. ****** “I'd say its enduring appeal is not due to the fact that Salinger was an expert writer but due to the universality of Holden's emotions and expressions Books that are termed great are termed so, not because they have fantastic plots or unique literary devices but are in fact, universal and timeless in the feelings they evoke within us.” (Mona)*******For even better pricing, visit our website*****.

About this Item: Little Brown, Boston, 1951. File folder envelope hand-written and addressed by J.D. Salinger to fellow writer and friend Eli Waldron. The file folder was used as an envelope. Shipping and return address entirely in Salinger's hand. Return address is from Salinger's Vermont address and addressed to Mr. Eli Waldron. Postmarked 1965. The folder measures 12 inches by 9.5 inches. The recipient Eli Waldron was an American writer and journalist whose primary work consisted of short stories, essays, and poetry. His writings were published in literary journals (such as The Kenyon Review, Prairie Schooner, and Story) and popular periodicals (such as Collier's, Holiday, Rolling Stone, Saturday Evening Post). From the 1950s to 1970s he contributed stories and essays to The New Yorker, and in the 1960s and 1970s. Waldron moved to Charlton Street in New York City in 1947 and became part of a literary circle that included Hollis Alpert, Josephine Herbst, S. J. Perelman, and J. D. Salinger. Following the publication in July 1951, of his review of J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye, Salinger wrote his reviewer a warm note of thanks, adding: "I hope one day somebody writes with that much perception and feeling about a book of yours." With the copy of Catcher in the Rye, which was sent to Waldron. 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.". Seller Inventory # 54090

That doesn't happen much, though."
