The Catcher in the Rye
New York: American Place, 2011. FIRST (AND ONLY) EDITION, ONE OF 500 COPIES. SIGNED BY PRINCE WITH HIS INITIALS ON THE FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The ultimate appropriationist book (or, "book sculpture"): Prince's controversial reproduction of the iconic first edition of Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.The front of the dust jacket is identical to the true first edition of Salinger's classic, except with Prince's name replacing Salinger's. (The rear of the dust jacket is blank as in later issues of Catcher). The book names Prince as the author on the title page and lists other works by Prince opposite the title. The copyright page contains the amusing statement: "This is an artwork by Richard Prince. Any similarity to a book is coincidental and not intended by the artist. © Richard Prince".The text is, of course, that of Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.Prince initialed this copy "RP" on the front free endpaper. Because of copyright issues, Prince generally refused to sign copies - this is an extremely rare initialed copy acquired by a collector in person at a Prince event.New York: American Place, 2011. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket; custom box. FINE CONDITION. Fine.
