New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1965.

First edition of the author’s fourth novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed and dated by John Updike on the title page to his neighbor. Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows the lightest of rubbing.

“A small masterpiece...With Of the Farm, John Updike has achieved a sureness of touch, a suppleness of style, and a subtlety of vision that is gained by few writers of fiction" (The New York Times).
