Knowles, John) Ginsburg, Max
Original cover art for the 1982 Bantam Books edition of A SEPARATE PEACE, by John Knowles
1982. Oil on canvas, signed "Max Ginsburg" (lower left). 1 vols. 40 x 24 in. The original cover art for the 1982 Bantam Books edition of A Separate Peace, John Knowels' classic coming-of-age novel set in a fictional New England boarding school during the outbreak of World War II. A Separate Peace was first published to great acclaim in 1959 and has since become a mainstay of high school required reading lists. For generations of readers, Ginsburg's cover is the image most closely associated with the novel - the main character Gene Forrester stands in the foreground while ghostly images of him and his friend Phineas climb a tree, with the Devon campus (based on Exeter) in the background. Ginsburg modelled both boys after a friend of his son, then a boarding school student of the same age as the characters in the novel. Oil on canvas, signed "Max Ginsburg" (lower left). 1 vols. 40 x 24 in [Attributes: Signed Copy]
Bookseller: James Cummins Bookseller, ABAA [New York, NY, U.S.A.]
