First Book Club Edition
Condition: The book itself is in near-mint condition, with no marks or foxing, very tight binding and clear, crisp pages. The original unclipped dust jacket is in good condition, but with one minor tear to its top edge, and another at the spine, as shown in first two images.
A first Book Club edition of one of the most iconic and brilliant books of all time... The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger.
If you don't have a cool £5,000 pounds or so spare for a first trade edition of this book, then a first book club edition is the next best thing. Especially one in fabulous condition, like this.
The Catcher in the Rye was partially published in serial form 1945–46 before being novelized in 1951. And this BCE is from the same year. A timeless study of teenage rebellion, that remains one of the most read and revered novels of the 20th century.
A special gift for yourself, a loved one, a Godchild, or any adolescent you may know feeling at odds with a challenging world.
