Salinger, J.D. -- Nine Stories [Book]
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1953. First Edition. 302pp. Hardcover: NEAR FINE. Dust Wrapper: NEAR FINE. Book is clean and tight; some very modest bumping to spine. Dust Wrapper is unclipped; has a few chips and sunning to the spine, otherwise fine. A lovely copy. The author's second book, a collection of short stories that includes "For Esme - with Love and Squalor" and "A Perfect Day for Bananafish." This collection enhanced the reputation Salinger had created for himself with "Catcher in the Rye." Salinger's collection of published work consists of only one novel and 13 short stories.
