Collectible - Like New

New York: Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum, [1991]. First edition in this format of a 1930 publication. Afterword by John Updike. Quarter morocco and cloth. Fine in fine slipcase. One of 250 copies Signed by Updike and Calderone. Original photogravure by Steichen bound in, as well as another print of the same image in a folder. Additionally Inscribed by Updike: "for Herb a tasty item with every good wish, John 1/28/92." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. *Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu* became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association.
