Four volumes, all first editions. Octavos. Rabbit Run is bound in paper covered hard boards over cloth covered spine, the other three volumes are in cloth covered hard boards. All with top edge stain as called for. All four in the original un-clipped dust jackets; Rabbit Run is the first state jacket with 16 lines of blub to the front flap. An author’s signature card laid into the first volume. The four volume series, written by Updike over a thirty years span, provides a rich and extraordinary portrait of the life an ordinary American man, Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom - a former high-school basketball star - from his twenties to his sixties, against the backdrop of major world events and covering most of the second half of the twentieth century.


Rabbit, Run is a Near Fine condition book in a Very Good jacket which is gently faded to the spine; the other three volumes are all Fine condition in Fine jackets. An excellent set.
