This is the Grosset & Dunlap reprint edition of J.D. Salinger’s classic coming-of-age novel The Catcher in the Rye. It was published in New York by Grosset & Dunlap in 1951, the same year as the true first edition by Boston’s Little Brown.
Good only in like dust jacket. Some damp staining on back cover of dust jacket; however, the spine is much brighter than usually seen. Some handling shows, and the previous owner’s name is colored pencil with year in pen on FFEP. Some yellowing / light damp stains in the interior of the book. Just check the pics.
This is a decent alternative until you have a couple grand more for a nice, first edition.
