Updike, John
The Dance of the Solids
New York: Scientific American Magazine, 1969. Certainly Updike's scarcest "A" item, this 24 page, 6" x 6" square chapbook (along with a similiar one by W.H. Auden) was sent out by Scientific American Magazine as a holiday greeting in 1969. In mustard wrappers with red lettering, it has illustrations by 6 different illustrators. It was written after Updike read the single topic Sept. 1967 Scientific American devoted to "Materials". The poem was originally published in the Jan. 1969 Scientific American, and later in 1969 in Updike's "Midpoint and Other Poems". Top corner of the front wrapper and the first few pages have a slight corner curl, Else Fine. Near Fine. No Jacket, As Issued. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Dale Steffey Books, MWABA [Bloomington, IN, U.S.A.]
