UPDIKE, John
Earthworm
Ontario Review Press, Princeton, N.J, 1979. Post card poem. First separate edition, first issue (with "God bless him" in the first line of the third stanza"). Poem card. Fine. Very scarce, traditionally one of the hardest Updike items to find, especially in the first issue. Reportedly only a total of 100 copies of both issues together were published. *De Bellis and Broomfield A77*: "Roberts reports 100 copies in the entire edition; number in each printing not established." In our experience, the first issue is much the scarcer. [Attributes: First Edition]
