The Catcher in the Rye cover by Michael Mitchell

A Michael Mitchell dust jacket design.


The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.

Grosset & Dunlap, 1952.


An estate sale purchase this morning. Even though it is the 1952 reprint edition and not the first by Little, Brown and Company, I was still excited to get this for a dollar. The dust jacket features the same design as the first, and is quite striking (and in near perfect shape).
