Description:
Ardsley, NY: Geigy Pharmaceuticals, 1972. First edition and, we assume, the only one. Appears to be a promotional piece for an anti-depressant, apparently issued as a give-away for a pharmaceuticals conference. COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY UNGERER, the prolific French illustrator of children's books (he is the recipient of the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award) and of material for adults, including for books, magazines, posters, etc. 36 pages; in blue, stiff, 8 1/2 x 11 inch paperwraps. Illustrated with 36 color drawings and two in black-and-white (some blank pages and some pages with multiple illustrations); text "handwritten" (i.e., reproduced, we assume from Ungerer handwriting but not actually handwritten, not signed). Fine condition.

Description:
New Castle: Oak Knoll Press, 2007. 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,… Read more
