By Seuss, Dr




Horton Hears a Who! is a 1954 book by Theodor Seuss Geisel, under the name Dr. Seuss. It is the second Seuss book to feature Horton the Elephant, the first being Horton Hatches the Egg. The Whos would later make a reappearance in How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. After WWII, Geisel was able to end his feelings of animosity towards Japan, using his book Horton Hears a Who as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of Japan, as well as dedicating the book to a Japanese friend.

Horton Hears A Who!

Seuss, Dr (Theodore Geisel)

New York: Random House, 1954. First edition. Quarto, original boards. Near fine in a very good price-clipped second issue dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the verso of the front free endpaper, "For Greg Barrett with best wishes Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss began work on Horton Hears a Who! in the fall of 1953. The book's main theme, "a person's a person no matter how small", was Geisel's reaction to his visit to Japan, where the importance of the individual was an exciting new concept. Geisel, who had harbored strong anti-Japan sentiments before and during World War II, changed his views dramatically after the war and used this book as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of the country. It was adapted to film in 2008, the cast included Jim Carrey and Steve Carell.

Horton Hears a Who!

Dr. Seuss

Random House, 1954. First Printing. Pictorial Boards. Near Fine Plus/Very Good Plus. Here is a beautiful copy of the First Printing of Horton Hears a Who! by Dr. Seuss. One of his best known titles, this is a NF+ copy of the book in a VG+ jacket with the original 250/250 price and the full ears on Horton on the back cover, which means that this is a truly rare and significant first printing. As mentioned, this copy is in exceptionally nice condition. The book is as nice as you will find- unmarked, tight and clean with just the slightest hint of rubbing to the top of the spine and the two front corners (a trivial amount)- and the jacket is intact without any rips or tears and with only the slightest hint of rubbing. There is some light paper loss to the top of the rear DJ panel, as shown in the photos below. There is some attendant soiling to that panel as well, however all in all this DJ is still in VG+ or better condition. Many photos available upon request.
