About This Item

New York: Random House, 1957. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 61 pp. First edition, first printing. Unglazed, matte paper covered boards, with pages bound in single-signature, Near Fine, with light touches of rubbing at the tips. In a Very Good+ first issue dust jacket, with publisher's price of 200/200 intact, with light edge wear, light rubbing at the spine ends, a short closed tear to the bottom of the rear panel, and a small patch of wear to the front cover right of the title which looks like it was rubbed with an erasure. A rather lovely example--a sharp and bright copy in a very nice first issue dust jacket. Seuss wrote the landmark children's book using only 220 different words, a challenge and limitation set at the behest of his publisher.

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.
