Lot Details

Lot 217
SALINGER, J. D. The Catcher In The Rye.
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1951. Stated first edition. Publisher's black cloth, in the original first issue dust jacket with the portrait of Salinger by Lotte Jacobi on the rear panel, with hair just touching the top edge of the rear panel; the $3.00 price intact and printed over the shoulder of the "R" in the title on the front flap. 7 5/8 x 5 1/8 inches (19.5 x 13.5 cm); [iv], 277 pp. A very nice example of the dust jacket. The spine a trifle toned but largely unfaded, several trifling small tape restorations on the verso of the jacket (the most prominent repairing a short tear on the fold of the front flap), in all a very much nicer example than the average.


Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000
Sold for $8,125 (includes buyer's premium)
