About This Item

New York: Random House, 1957. Book. Illus. by Dr. Seuss. Very Good. Hardcover. Not Signed. 1st Edition. Random House, 1957, New York. Hardback. First Edition/Second Printing. Very Good/Good. The book is the second printing of the first edition with all the correct points including the lack of a price on the jacket, which is correct for the second printing. The spine is straight and tight, the boards are firm and sound with minor wear on the edges and the mostly pointed tips. The inside of the book is "as new" without a crayon or any other mark or tear and very clean. The dust jacket has a 3" by 2" tear out at the top cover removing the "T" from the "The" and a bit of the top of the hat (see picture). There is a small tear out at the foot of the spine. Otherwise the jacket has some soiling, faded pen marks, tiny creasing and rub wear. Looks sharp in it's new removable archival mylar..


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.
