Boston: Little, Brown, 1951. First Book Club issue but with dustwrapper with printed price on the turnover. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and with the original pictorial dustjacket. 216. A fine copy with the jacket in beautifully preserved condition. AN AMERICAN 20TH CENTURY CLASSIC. J.D. Salinger’s first and still, most famous work of all. 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.
