The Penn Publishing Company
Cover art by R. Pallen Coleman. Temple Bailey’s romance novels were among the best-selling titles of the 1920s. Wallflowers follows the story of two sisters finding love in Washington, D.C., and was adapted into a 1928 silent film starring Jean Arthur. This copy retains its original perforated publisher’s bookmark on the dust jacket’s front flap, and a “R.H. Macy and Co. Inc.” impress stamp on the title page.
