UPDIKE, John
Humor in Fiction
Lord John Press, Northridge, 2000. First edition. Small octavo. [50]pp. Quarter cloth gilt and decorated papercovered boards. Fine. Intended as an edition of 100 numbered copies and 26 lettered copies, this is a unique copy sent to the publisher, Herb Yellin, consisting of 50 unnumbered pages (as opposed to 33 in the published book), and consisting entirely of multiple leaves of the publisher's limitation pages - multiple pages each of the limitation page for Martha Updike's Copy, the Binder's Copy, Bill Yellin's Copy (the publisher's brother?), and the Publisher's Copy, apparently bound up with leftover pages by the binder; the binding on this volume seems identical to the published version. The publisher, Herb Yellin, has written an explanation on the first printed page: "I never had this happen before. This one-of-a-kind just surprised me on the date of publication. Herb Yellin. 3-11-01." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Between the Covers-Rare Books, Inc. ABAA [Gloucester City, NJ, U.S.A.]
