About This Item

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. Jacket has some very minor chippings, none of which affects anything 'live'. It is protected in mylar. 0.0 0.0 0.0. 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

Synopsis

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.
