The Catcher in the Rye.
An iconic first edition with the rare first state dust jacket.
The classic American novel of disaffected youth, Salinger's first book is an undisputed masterpiece and a book every collector wants.
Bayliss Rare Books are proud to be the only rare book dealer in the UK offering this classic first edition with the all-too rare first state dust jacket.
First edition, first impression. The correct first issue dust jacket with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the correct price on the front flap. A couple of small nicks to the extremeties but overall an incredible jacket in near-fine condition, with bright colouring. Original publisher's black cloth, near fine condition, with no defects.
Published by Little, Brown and Company, Boston, 1951
