About this Item

First edition. First issue of dust wrapper, which carries the statement in the biographical blurb that Updike had "two small children." Updike's first book, a collection of lean and sly poems, among which one, titled "Ex-Basketball Player," almost seems a rough character sketch for Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom. Very faint spotting to fore edge, spine ends lightly rubbed, else fine in cloth-backed grey boards and dust wrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 17517
