(Updike, John). THE TEXAS ARTS JOURNAL: Number One. Dallas: Texas Arts Journal, . Small 4to. The issue contains Updike's libretto for a children's opera, "The Fisherman And His Wife." One of 22 copies with a page of the original typescript, signed by Updike, laid into a printed folder that details the limitation. The only appearance of this piece in printed form. According to Updike: "I talked Knopf into letting me make it a children's book in format like the other opera plots .. But when I settled to the task it appeared to me I should spare bookbuyers and booksellers one more volume to deal with." Pictorial wrappers. Enclosed in publisher's slipcase. Fine.
