This is one of the items ABAA member University Archives will be exhibiting at the upcoming Brooklyn Book Fair: "Signed Book "J. D. Salinger", The Catcher in the Rye first edition, Boston: Little, Brown 1951, Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket, in red custom clamshell box. First edition, later printing of Salinger's seminal classic, inscribed by the famously reclusive author "To Pearl Bsharah, with best wishes from J. D. Salinger, The New Yorker, April 13, 1959." Signed or inscribed copies of this classic are exceedingly rare - only a handful are known. This copy is 14th printing, in later-issue dust jacket. Interior fine; slight chipping to spine ends. "
