No creasing to pages which are also bright and white, including endpapers and pastedowns. Listing as Near Fine rather than Fine only because minor rubs and scuffs to black cloth boards.

Salinger" with a lone "W" below, followed by "Published simultaneously in Canada by McClelland and Stewart Limited" and "Printed in the United States of America" - only printing indications. DJ not present. Again, a beautiful copy of this collectible classic. 277 pp.


Published in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye has become a common part of high school and college curricula throughout the English-speaking world and has been translated into all major languages. Since its publication with a $3.00 sticker, it has reportedly sold more than 65 million copies. The novel's antihero, Holden Caulfield, has become a cultural icon for teenage rebellion. Due to its liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality and teenage angst, it has frequently been met with censorship challenges in the United States making it one of the most challenged books of the 20th century.
