The Cat In the Hat

By Seuss, Dr




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.

The Cat in the Hat.

Seuss, Dr. [Theodor Seuss Geisel]

New York: Random House, 1957. First edition, first issue of Dr. Seuss' classic work. Octavo, original illustrated unlaminated boards. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author opposite the title page, "For Sigler Best Wishes from Dr. Seuss" with a large drawing of the cat in the hat in black and red ink. The recipient was a neighbor of Dr. Seuss. An excellent example in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. All issue points present: price of 200/200 on the dust jacket, no mention of the "Beginner Books" series on the rear panel, and has four paragraphs of educator's reviews on rear panel. Book contains a single signature and 61 pages with a message on final page before end paper contained in an outline of the cat's hat & head. We have never seen a true first edition with an original drawing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare and desirable. "A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted." "The Cat in the Hat was so successful that Random House, publisher of all the Dr. Seuss books since 1937, created a special division, Beginner Books, with the Cat in the Hat as the logo and Dr. Seuss as president of the division" (Dr. Seuss from Then to Now, 45). "This extraordinary writer has done more to foster literacy in children than most because he manages to combine lunacy with sanity, fun with learning, and quality with exuberant readability" (Joseph Connolly). It was the basis for the 2003 film starring Mike Myers in the title role of the Cat in the Hat, and Dakota Fanning as Sally.

THE CAT IN THE HAT

Dr. Seuss

New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1957. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Octavo, 61 pages; VG-; bound in publishers blue cloth, no lettering on spine; one moderate bump to the middle of the front hinge; mild shelfwear; This edition was not issued with a Dust Jacket.; This educational edition predates the trade edition by 2 months (the trade edition was released March 1 1957 whereas the educational edition was released in January of 1957). In Dr. Seuss's own words, on June 11, 1956, he wrote to Random House: "Don't ever show this letter to anyone, but I've got a hunch . . . (very immodest) . . . Namely, according to Houghton-Mifflin, who will be releasing my First Grade Reader to schools early in Jan. or Feb., we've got a possibility of making a tremendous noise in the noisy discussion of Why Johnny Can't Read. The Random House trade edition won't come out until later, and the big noise may never come off." At the time, Random House did not use multiple binding signatures, hence the single signature binding of the first printing of the trade edition. Houghton Mifflin had already begun printing books with multiple signature bindings, this is why in later printings of the trade edition Random House actually copies the format of the Houghton Mifflin edition. Also note, Dr. Seuss on the front page is printed in red, as was the first trade edition, however it lacks the "for beginner readers" logo printed on the trade edition (a secretly added feature by Bennett Cerf to make the trade edition more appealing and to boost Random House sales).; Houghton Mifflin had possibly intended to release a children's book series called "Read by Yourself Books" in 1957, and there is a label on the rear cover stating so. shelved case 2.

(1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., spine extrems and tips worn else VG in dust wrapper. 1st edition of Seuss's first reader, first state of the book in second state dust wrapper issued with no printed price at all. The original price of this book was the cause of considerable confusion and from our research, the sequence appears to be as follows: The first reader was originally published at $2.00. It was so successful that the publisher decided to make a series of beginning readers. They planned to bind the books in glazed paper instead of flat paper. Before the next title was ready, they used the remaining sheets of the first printing and bound them using the remaining flat paper for the cover. Unsure about how to price the series, they printed additional dust wrappers identical to those on the first printing except these had no price at all. When the second title in the Beginner Book series came out, the cover was glazed paper and the Cat In The Hat folllowed suit. The price of 195/195 was settled on and then the wrapper text and book covers were changed completely to reflect the series. Therefore, it is safe to assume that all copies of the Cat in the Hat bound in flat paper are first states. Those with 200/200 price on the dust wrappers are first states of both the book and the dust wrapper. Those copies in flat paper with no printed price at all on the wrapper (the copy offered here) are first states of the book in second state dust wrappers. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. Illustrated in bright color throughout. The importance of this book cannot be overstated.

The Cat in the Hat

Dr. Seuss - RARE FIRST PRINTING IN JACKET

New York: Random House, 1957, 1957 Cloth. Fine/Near Fine. First Edition, First Impression. A great looking copy of this seminal book, a favourite among adults and children. The boards are without bent corners; the endpapers have very slight foxing spots; the book is clean and tight without any markings; there are a few slight abrasions to the blue covers at the top of the spine and the edges. There has been no colouring in, there are no owner signatures, and no folded corners. This is the first edition of the book in a third state jacket. The price is printed as 195/195, and the back of the jacket advertises more in the series of Beginner Books. A really exceptional state for such a sought after book.

THE CAT IN THE HAT (Beginner Books)

Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel)

New York, NY: Random House, 1957. Text/Bright, clean, sound As New w/short closed tear by spine (short of stitching) to rear endpaper.. Glazed illustrated boards/NF w/trace rubs to corner tips & upper/lower spine edges. First Edition, 3rd variant printing --- glazed boards accompanied by dust jacket with 195/195 on front inner flap, denoting final choice of boards and pricing. 200/200 on the inner flaps is a record of intitial marketing choice of regular paper covered boards at $2.00; the book was issued again w/paper covered boards without any numbers on the inner flap reflecting publisher's uncertainty over price and board treatment. This 3rd variant, identified by 195/195, records zeroing in on the price of $1.95 and committment to the more durable glazed boards better suited for little hands and fingers, paginated pages, and established the standard format for subsequent Cat in the Hat Beginner Reader Series. Art work remains constant. In essence, this 3rd Variant Edition is the definitive printing. This tall, skinny cat, sporting a signature red bow tie and red-and-white striped top hat, created and made famous both through verse and illustrations of Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991), is friend to most American school children, and a real sense, spearheaded early reader books puntuated with wit and humor, and word play. The charming, action packed tale is told with 220 different words, all vocabulary recognizable by first and secondgraders. A cool cat that will reappear in subsequent rhymed stories by Seuss and become an emblem of a series of Beginner Books it spawned. Fine copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover/Stitched. NEAR FINE/Near Fine. Illus. by Dr. Seuss (Author-Illustrator).
