Herb Yellin’s Updike foreign language editions for sale

Herb Yellin, who published multiple Updike poems and short stories as part of his Lord John Press offerings, turned up on eBay as a collection of 438 foreign language editions of Updike’s signed 1st editions that are being offered for sale at $32,000.

These days everyone seems to be going after a pay-off, when years ago such collections would have been donated to the Houghton or The John Updike Childhood Home archive.

We wish Herb well—though it would have been nice to have been able to display some of those books at the museum the society is creating.
