And it should be noted that there's little disgrace in possessing a later printing of this title, which is scarce both as a first and a later copy. Toledano, you might note, places the value of a first vs. a non-first as only a letter apart. My copy is a later printing (with the taller binding 14), which I selected for the exceptional condition of the dust jacket. The Updike dj is highly condition-sensitive because of the use of solid black on the spine and front (kind of like the Genet, although not quite as bad).

  You know you are dealing with a bunch of true collectors

  Toledano Guide number.

  One more distinction of note with this title is the dust
  jacket: the running guy logo changed and the later
  printing (printings?) has the stylized guy:
