About This Item

New York: McCall Corporation, 1950. Seven of the first nine Redbook Magazines from 1950-51 ( 1.3.4.5.6.7, and 9 ) that each contained an original Dr. Seuss story, overall Very Good, wear with paper loss at spine ends, some with tears at spine folds, toning, some pages with small corner creases. Jun. 1950, Vol. 95, No.2, "Gustav, the Goldfish", p. 48-51; Aug. 1950, Vol.95, No.4, "Tad and Todd", p.56-58; Sep. 1950, Vol. 95, No. 5, "Marco Comes Late" p.58-59, Oct. 1950, Vol. 95, No.6, "How Officer Pat Saved the Whole Town"; p.46-48; Nov. 1950, Vol. 96, No.1, "Steak for Supper", p. 44-46; Dec.1950, Vol.96, No.2, "The Big Brag", p.46-47; Feb. 1951, Vol. 96, No.4, "The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga", p.46-47. Between June 1950 and December 1957, Seuss had 23 original stories first published in Redbook Magazine. At least 3 of the 23 predated the first book publications of the same titles. "Gustav, the Goldfish" was the basis for the book A FISH OUT OF WATER by Helen Palmer (Seuss' first wife). The 2 stories are identical in plot, while Helen's book does not rhyme and is illustrated by P.D. Eastman. Six of the seven stories were featured in two Random House books of "lost" Seuss stories, The Bippolo Seed and Other Stories (2011) and Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories (2014), both with forewords by Charles D, Cohen. Individually and collectively these magazines are SCARCE in current commerce, with few individual copies ever showing up at auction. A RARE opportunity for the dedicated Dr. Seuss collector. . First Printings. Magazine. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
