  • A Separate Peace A Novel By John Knowles

    By John Knowles

    Our Price: $1,250.00
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9789111960281
    • Publisher: Secker & Warburg
    • Published: 1959
    8vo. 1st edition. Some bumping to three spots at upper and lower edges of front board; one 'bump' at upper edge creates closed tear to the top layer only of about an eighth of an inch of the cloth. The green cloth of the covers is particularly clean and bright. Toning to leaves. Some edgewear to d.j. with very small chips and very short tears; the deep orange of letters to 'Separate' and the shirt of one boy is faded at the toned spine. VG/VG. Far from the raging Second World War, an idyllic New Hampshire boarding school provides the backdrop for this study of fleeting innocence between two young men. Published at the close of a decade that began with J.D. Salinger's notorious 'Catcher in the Rye', Knowles's quieter, more enigmatic 1959 debut soon joined the former in the canon of high school classics.
