About This Item

Houghton Mifflin Company, 1957. First Edition. Hardcover. Fair. This predates the Random House first edition by 2 months, making it the True First edition; this is an ex-library book so it has some stamps and the card envelope pasted on the inside of the back cover; the corners are fraying and have major wear; there was tape on the binding & cover and it left residue behind when it was removed; the dust jacket is not included; there were pencil scribbled on some of the pages that was erased but you can still see the faint scribble lines; there are some soil marks on the inner pages; the edge of the first page is torn on the edge; please view photos


The Cat in the Hat is a children's book by Dr. Seuss, featuring a tall, anthropomorphic, mischievous cat, wearing a tall, red and white striped hat, and a bowtie. He also carries an umbrella. With the series of Beginner Books that The Cat inaugurated, Seuss promoted both his name and the cause of elementary literacy in the United States.
