Sein literarisches Schaffen umfaßt neben Lyrischem vorwiegend Dramen. - Mit kleineren Randläsuren.

        The Catcher in the Rye [Inscribed by Salinger]

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1951. Later printing. Inscribed by the author. 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 angry and alienated voice. Salinger's book retains much of the freshness it had when first published, and it stands as one of the great fictional accomplishments of 20th century American literature. Salinger left New York City in 1953 and became increasingly reclusive in subsequent years. He visited the New Yorker offices in 1959 and signed a few books for people there on that day, but very seldom after that appeared in public and almost never signed books. Signed copies of Catcher are one of the true rarities of modern American literature. This copy is inscribed by Salinger: "To Pearl Bsharah, with best wishes from J.D. Salinger/ The New Yorker/ April 13, 1959." Bsharah worked at The New Yorker. Fourteenth printing, with slight chipping to spine ends; near fine in a fine (restored) later printing, price-clipped dust jacket. In custom clamshell case. Hardcover.

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Boston: Little Brown and Co. 1951 - First edition. Publisher's black cloth in unrestored first issue dust jacket with $3.00 price correctly positioned and photo by Lotte Jacobi to rear panel. Raymond Chandler's copy, stamped on front free endpaper with his La Jolla, CA address and date "AUG 4 1951". Book with offsetting to endpapers from printer's glue, edges of textblock very minimally foxed, small creases to top corner of first few pages, else a clean and square copy with bright gilt to spine; bright and clean dust jacket with a few nicks and creases to corners, spine very slightly toned, light rubbing to extremities. Housed in a custom quarter leather case. A beautiful copy of one of the most popular books of the 20th century, from the library of writer, Raymond Chandler. Chandler acquired this book shortly after the first issue was printed, in July 1951. At this time, he was writing his first draft of The Long Goodbye. Catcher in the Rye is J.D. Salinger's first and only novel. It tells the story of protagonist and anti-hero Holden Caulfield, a disillusioned teenager who flees his prep school to wander the streets of New York City. Almost immediately after publication, Catcher in the Rye became both extremely popular and highly controversial. While many young people identified with Caulfield's teenage rebellion, critics were wary of the protagonist's explicit language and open questioning of his own sexuality. In 1981, Catcher in the Rye was simultaneously the second most taught novel in American public schools and the one of the nation's most censored books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CATCHER IN THE RYE

      Boston Little, Brown and Company 1951 - First edition and First Printing. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and in the original dustjacket featuring Salinger’s photo on rear cover credited to Lotte Jacobi and $3 price correctly positioned on front flap. 277 pp. A good and honest copy showing some use, but otherwise well preserved. The dustjacket with some evidence of age-wear at the extremities and with a chip at the bottom of the spine panel, the bottom of the dustjacket sometime trimmed slightly to clean the bottom edge. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF AN AMERICAN ICONIC WORK AND A 20TH CENTURY LITERARY CLASSIC. J.D. Salinger’s first and still, most famous work. Salinger tapped into a common and necessary theme in American literature with his unhappy teenage character, Holden Caulfield, who runs away from his boarding school as part of his disgust with 'phoniness'. Caufield's feelings and the idiom in which he communicates them have made the book a symbol of purity and sensitivity to generations of readers and has insured that it will remain a particularly coveted title in modern literature.

        Les Mains Sales [Dirty Hands] (Original French Film Poster)

      MacDonald Pictures 1951 - Original French "affiche" poster the 1951 film, "Les Mains Sales" (released in the US and UK as "Dirty Hands"), based on the play, "Red Gloves" by Jean-Paul Sartre and directed by Ferdinand Rivers. Sartre's original dialogue for this film and one other ("Respectful Prostitue" in 1952) constitute his complete contributions to world cinema. The original play made its debut on Broadway and starred Charles Boyer, and that role was assumed by Pierre Brasseur for the film version. An unsung gem of twentieth century French cinema, about a man who joins a subversive organization (modeled on communism, but unnamed) which then requires him to assasinate his college professor. Near Fine condition, 47 x 63 inches, on linen.
