Light edge wear and creasing of DJ, small tape stains at corners of back & front free end papers, previous owners initials in large script on front free end paper. This appears to be the facsimile edition, published much later, no statement of edition, and the statement 'Originally published at $7.95' on lower corner of front flap. Black cloth spine over mustard yellow paper covered boards. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 372 pages; Peyton Place, originally published in 1956 was considered scandalous at it its time of publication, Peyton Place, stirred controversy with its explicit—for the time—depictions of sex and sins in a small New England town. Today, the once shocking novel and its sequel seem tame, and are taught in college English courses as classics of their time, well-written and honest in the evocation of the passions, jealousies, and secrets of small-town America.
