Octavo, original boards. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author shortly after publication, "To Jay Dupuis with best wishes, Grace Metalious. Oct. 10, 1956." The initial first edition was released on September 24, 1956 and the print run was minimal, as it was Metalius' first book. It sold 60,000 copies within the first ten days of its release and remained on the New York Times best seller list for 59 weeks. The recipient was a relative of Metalious' son-in-law Edward Dupuis.

New York.: Dell Publishing Company, by arr. w/ Julian Messner Inc., 1957. First Dell printing, September 1957. Author copyright 1956.. Mass-market paperback. Very good. Right page block, top few inches darkened, as is top block. Clean clovers, creasing to spine.. Smith, Larry (Back Cover photo of author at desk by).. 1 First edition. 512 p. Mass-market paperback, illustrated black front cover (no art credit). Yellow and red titles. Turquoise page blocks. This mid-20th century best-seller set in a small New Hampshire town was "damned and banned" (from back cover), and also hailed as an "extraordinary literary discovery" of the era. Its popularity promptly inspired a 20th-Century-Fox-Wald Production, a movie starring Lana Turner as Constance MacKenzie, Lee Philips as Michael Rossi. Later, the fictional drama found its way to television.

Description:
New York: Julian Messner, Inc., 1959. The sequel to Metalious' 1950s bestseller, "Peyton Place," which exposed the hypocrisy and prejudice hiding just under the surface manners and morality of a small New England town in mid-20th century America. "Return To Peyton Place" continues the assault on the false fronts and pretensions of middle class society. Text is age-tanned with slightly soiled edges; boards show a bit of shelf wear, o/w boards and text are clean and unmarked, tight and square. The dustjacket shows an inch-long, closed tear on the lower edge of the front panel, a few smaller tears, chipping and wear at the corners and spine ends but no other significant flaws or damage; it is not price-clipped. A good copy in a very decent dustjacket.. First Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
