One of 1,000 copies "privately printed for the friends of the author and his publishers as a New Year's Greeting.

WIND, SAND AND STARS

Saint Exupery, Antoine de

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, (1939). First U.S. edition, presumed Book-of-the-Month Club issue. We thought the BOMC was indistinguishable from the first but now believe it to be identifiable by the printer's name "H. Wolff Book Mfg" on copyright page (vs "Cornwall Press" for the first printing. The BOMC jackets are not priced on front flap (vs. priced $2.75 on bottom right corner front flap), have multiple vertical lines of rubbing on front panel (vs. without lines), and do not have code on bottom right corner rear panel (vs the first printing with "No. 4122" on bottom right of rear panel). An autobiographical work recounting episodes from his years flying treacherous mail routes across the African Sahara and the South American Andes. 8vo quarter black cloth, blue patterned boards, lettered in gilt on front and spine; top edge brown. Good or better with author and publisher names nearly perished at spine (gilt titles on front and spine still bright), boards fading at ed ... Read more

THE CATCHER IN THE RYE

Salinger, J.D.

  • Quantity available: 1
Boston: Little, Brown, 1951. First edition of the author's first book, on all the lists of best books of the last century--and over 65 years after publication, Holden still has something to say to current readers. The dust jacket is priced $3.00 on front flap, as the first printing calls for. But it's clearly been trimmed to fit the book and we therefore presume it is a second printing dust jacket. Gilt on spine perished otherwise would be very good; in about very good dust jacket with spine ends chipped, red on spine toned to pink, and thin rubbed line on rear panel affecting portion of author photo.
