New York: Random House, 1957 

First edition, first printing. The true first issue, with 200/200 on the front flap of the dust jacket, boards flat rather than glazed, and the Beginner's Book Series not mentioned on the back cover. A subtle Christmas gift inscription on the first free endpaper, dated the year of publication. A bookshop sticker to the rear pastedown, from Hudson's of Detroit. The slightest handling creases to a couple of pages only. Otherwise, internally flawless, with the boards fine as well. The unclipped dust jacket near fine, with a bit of rubbing to the rear panel and possible evidence of only the slightest restoration at the tip of the spine and at the top corner of the front panel. The book that would make Dr. Seuss famous, and have a lasting influence on children's literature and primary education in general. Over 11 million copies have been printed. The original first issue is scarce, and because nearly every copy was thoroughly enjoyed by its young owner, examples usually survive only with considerable damage. Yet the present example appears unread, and is in uncommonly beautiful condition.
