THE CAT IN THE HAT Stock code: 14392


New York: Random House 1957


First edition, first printing, first issue. Inscribed by the author. Publisher's matt pictorial paper covered boards, in dustwrapper. Illustrated in two colours throughout. A superb near fine copy, the binding clean square and firm, the contents with one small strip of browning (possibly glue from a bookplate) to the reverse of the front endpaper are otherwise clean and fresh throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper. Not price-clipped (200 / 200 to the upper front flap, as called for). An unusually attractive example of this landmark children's book in entirely original condition, made all the more desirable by the author's inscription.




Inscribed by the author in blue ink at the bottom left corner of the reverse of the front endpaper "best wishes - / Dr. Seuss".
