Oak Knoll Press, 2007. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine / No Jacket. Item #1306144
First edition. A massive work, as is needed to cover one of, if not our most productive author. Includes "A Foreword to my own Bibliography" by John Updike and a CD Supplement. Updike is internationally renowned and has won two Pulitzers, the National Book Award, the American Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and many other prizes. This definitive guide to materials by and about this prolific American author consists of a printed first volume and a second volume on CD. The A and B sections of Volume I, concerning separately printed works by Updike and books to which he has contributed, are superb examples of descriptive bibliography. The printed volume also features over 500 grayscale images of book covers, jackets, broadsides, and many seldom seen items. It includes comprehensive listings of Updike's short fiction, poems, articles, essays, and reviews, as well as extensive documentation of letters, speeches, dramatic works, manuscripts, interviews, and blurbs. Volume II contains entries for material about Updike and his work (reviews, commentary, and theses), several appendices (media appearances, work read by others, works in translation, exhibits and catalogs), and full-color versions of images appearing in the printed volume. Large, thick, 8.5 x 11 inches, 610 pages (plus nearly 300 pages of text on CD). This special limited issue is bound in quarter leather, includes a slipcase, and features a colophon SIGNED BY UPDIKE.
