Single sheet standard printed contract of Franz J. Horch Associates, Author's Representatives.

Folio. Signed by Salinger, Portuguese rights to Catcher in the Rye. A signed copy of the contract for the Portuguese-language rights of The Catcher in the Rye, made between Salinger and the Lisbon publisher Livros do Brasil, ten years after the book's original publication. Rights are granted for publication in Portugal only, and do not extend to Brazil.
The Portuguese edition was published under the title Uma Agulha no Palheiro (A Needle in the Haystack), in a translation by João Palma-Ferreira. A Brazilian edition appeared in 1965 under the title O Apanhador no Campo de Centeio (The Catcher in the Rye), which differed substantially from the Lisbon edition.
