"IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT": FIRST EDITION THE CATCHER IN THE RYE IN A FINE FIRST-ISSUE DUST JACKET
Boston: Little Brown, 1951.
First edition of the author’s first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. 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. A very nice example.
