the CARPENTERED HEN and other tame creatures
Harper & Brothers 1958 - Harper & Brothers, New York, 1958, stated first edition. John Updike was considered to be one of America’s greatest writers in the second half of the twentieth century, as evidenced by the fact that he was only one of three writers that have ever won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction twice. A prolific writer Updike published works of poetry, short stories and dozens of Novels, including the well known “Rabbit” series. The CARPENTERED HEN was both his first poetry collection and his first published book. This book, 185 pages, is in near fine condition in a near fine, price clipped first issue dust jacket, now in a protective mylar wrapper. The only flaws on the dust jacket is very light wrinkling at the top and bottom of the spine, some 8mm in each case, and a small 2mm wrinkle by the front bottom corner and a light red 10mm mark on the back. Thus, an almost flawless copy. Beautiful, bright, square it would be an indispensable item in any Updike collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
