        The Catcher in the Rye. (WITH SIGNED SLIP)

      Hamish Hamilton, London, 1951.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Signed by Author(s) The first UK edition of Salinger's first book. 8vo. 252pp. Blue cloth lettered in silver at spine. Top edge lightly dust marked and with just a tiny trace of spotting to fore edge, endpapers, half-title and title page. A small area of scuffing to front pastedown where former owner details have presumably been erased. Very good indeed with splendid pictorial Fritz Wegner-illustrated dust wrapper, lightly rubbed and chafed at head of spine panel and internally reinforced, with just a trace of dust marking to predominantly white rear panel. Laid-in is a slip of paper bearing Salinger's signature and giving permission for his details to appear in the British National Bibliography following publication of 'The Catcher in the Rye'. Salinger has also added his first two names and date of birth to the form (which has as some point been hole-punched, impacting the 'D' of the author's signature). Published a month after the US edition, this extremely uncommon UK version was issued with a completely different and superior dust wrapper, one much more to Salinger's taste, for he had detested James Avati's design for the US wrapper ("he himself envisioned a sublime drawing of Phoebe Caulfield gazing wistfully at the Central Park carousel" - Slawenski). A super copy of a very uncommon book, with the added rarity of Salinger's signature, deemed one of the most elusive in twentieth century literature.
