Lot 3207

$250
Title: Franny and Zooey
Author: J. D. Salinger
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Printing Year: 1961 First Edition, First Printing

Condition/Details: Bound in grey paper with gilt embossing on the spine and in the original dust jacket, this volume is a first edition first printing of Salinger's third book, published in 1961. This first edition of "Franny and Zooey" contains a dedication page facing the copyright page. The dedication reads:

"As nearly as possible in the spirit of Matthew Salinger, age one, urging a luncheon com-panion to accept a cool lima bean, I urge my editor, mentor, and (heaven help him) closest friend, William Shawn, genius domus of The New Yorker, lover of the long shot, protector of the unprolific, defender of the hopelessly flam-boyant, most unreasonably modest of born great artist-editors, to accept this pretty skimpy-looking book."

The book contains two parts having originally appeared as a short story and a novella in The New Yorker in 1955 and 1957, respectively. Franny and Zooey, a sister and brother both in their twenties, are the two youngest members of the Glass family, which was a frequent focus of Salinger's writings. The action of both parts takes place over a long weekend in November 1955. Salinger's known interest in eastern religious philosophy such as Zen Buddhism and Hindu Advaita Vedanta are evident throughout the book, particularly in a brief section in the second part that includes quotations from spiritual texts. There is also a discussion of whether the book is a "mystical story" or a "love story" in the introduction to the second section, as speculated by the book's "narrator," Buddy Glass (who decides it's the latter). Gerald Rosen, in his short 1977 book Zen in the Art of J. D. Salinger, observes that Franny and Zooey could be interpreted as a modern Zen tale, with the main character, Franny, progressing over the course of the book from a state of ignorance to the deep wisdom of enlightenment. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)

The identical front and the back sides of the cream-colored dust jacket have the title and Salinger's name in black lettering. The jacket has a price of $4.00 at the top inside corner of the front flap, and contains no reviews of the work. The volume shows light external age/wear, with some mild sunning along the board edges. The text block is solidly bound with clean pages. The top corner of the last page of text is torn, with the corner attached to the rear free endpaper. The mylar-covered dust jacket shows very well, with minor shelf wear concentrated along the spine edges. The book measures approximately 5 1/2" x 8" and contains 201 pages.
