DescriptionJohn Updike. Rabbit, Run. John Updike. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1960.
First edition, first issue dust jacket. Octavo. 307 pages.
Publisher's quarter teal cloth over light blue boards with the front cover lettered in silver, and the spine lettered in silver and gilt. Small Borzoi Books decal blind-stamped on the back cover. Illustrated first issue dust jacket. Very minor discoloration to the edges of the covers, slightly rubbed dust jacket, tiny closed tears to the corner and edges of the jacket, very minor chipping to the head and foot of the jacket. Altogether a very good copy.
This first edition copy exhibits a first issue dust jacket due to the presence of a sixteen line blurb on the front inner panel, not attributed to anyone. American author and critic, John Hoyer Updike (March 18, 1932) is best known for this novel which inspired the author to write several sequels, including Rabbit Redux, Rabbit Is Rich, Rabbit At Rest, and the novella Rabbit Remembered. Written in the present tense, Updike broke literary ground with this novel. The use of a present tense narrative afforded the author greater movement and creativity than the somewhat one-dimensional convention of a past tense narrative.
