About This Item

Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) (author) NA (editor), Dr. Seuss (illustrator): THE CAT IN THE HAT. Published by Random House, New York., Copyright 1957, assumed not stated first edition, hardback without dust cover. 61 pages, illustrated. Condition: Book is well used and shows all the signs of “kid wear”. I have tried to be as through as possible and list all the marks, scribbles, tears etc. Front cover has red pen trace inside the white title lettering, name of previous owner written on inside first page, page 13 has light red crayon marks, most pages have finger prints on bottom of page where held open to read. Otherwise each page is bright and without any tears or major stains. Spine is loose and split at back cover. Boards have wear at edges and corners. Typical bumps and wear on the back due to shelf wear and handling.


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.
