Item Description: 1957. First Edition. SEUSS, Dr. The Cat in the Hat. New York: Random House, (1957). Octavo, original pictorial paper boards, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. $16,500.First edition of this rare and important children's classic, "a turning point". in the career of Dr. Seuss". [and] in the reading habits of American children," inscribed by the acclaimed author-illustrator with his characteristic flourish, "for ANDY, Dr. Seuss.""A turning point, not only in the career of Dr. Seuss but in the reading habits of American children, occurred in the late 1950s. Inspired by a thoughtful article by John Hersey in Life magazine, entitled 'Why do Students Bog Down on the First R?,' Seuss began to address the problem, which has since entered the popular parlance as the why-Johnny-can't-read syndrome. Hersey's contention was that the schools were filled with 'pallid primers' such as Fun with Dick and Jane, featuring 'abnormally courteous, unnaturally clean boys and girls,' that real children found them uninspiring, and that many bookstores displayed more attractive alternatives, the 'jaunty juveniles' with 'strange and wonderful animals and children who behave naturally, i.e., sometimes misbehave.' Seuss' answer was The Cat in the Hat. By enhancing everyday situations with irresistible imaginary characters and telling the tales with cleverly rhymed, easily recognizable words, Seuss gave control of learning to read back to children, while providing wit, charm, comic verse, and a surprise on every page. 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). First edition, with 200/200 on the inside flap of dust jacket and all other first edition points. Younger & Hirsch 7. Interior generally clean, slight toning to spine and light rubbing to joints and edges; light embrowning to edges of rear board. Bright dust jacket lightly rubbed with mild soiling to rear panel. A bright, exceptionally nice copy, elusive and desirable inscribed by Seuss. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 103805

Item Description: The Vanguard Press, New York, 1937. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good +. A magnificent Association copy of the 1937 true 1st edition (Younger & Hirsch, pgs. 14-15) of Dr. Seuss's first published children's book. THIS COPY IS NOT ONLY INSCRIBED BY DR. SEUSS (IN A CLEARLY VERY EARLY HAND) BUT, PERHAPS JUST AS SIGNIFICANTLY, IS ALSO INSCRIBED BY MIKE MCCLINTOCK, THE KEY FIGURE IN THE ORIGINAL PUBLICATION OF THE BOOK. MCCLINTOCK WAS NOT ONLY THE BOOK'S EDITOR --AND ITS EARLIEST CHAMPION-- BUT WAS ALSO THE HUSBAND OF HELENE MCCLINTOCK (TO WHOM THE BOOK WAS DEDICATED) AND THE REAL-LIFE FATHER OF "MARCO" MCCLINTOCK, THE LITTLE BOY AFTER WHOM DR. SEUSS NAMED THE MAIN CHARACTER. IN FACT, IN HIS INSCRIPTION ON THE VERSO OF THE FRONT FREE ENDPAPER, JUST BELOW DR. SEUSS'S, MCCLINTOCK SIGNS "DITTO--MIKE MCCLINTOCK (MARCO'S FATHER)". TO QUOTE A PASSAGE FROM "9 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT DR. SEUSS", "A CHANCE SIDEWALK ENCOUNTER LED TO DR. SEUSS'S FIRST CHILDREN'S BOOK. AFTER A 27TH PUBLISHER REJECTED HIS FIRST MANUSCRIPT, DR. SEUSS WALKED DEJECTEDLY ALONG THE SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK, PLANNING TO BURN THE BOOK IN HIS APARTMENT INCINERATOR. ON MADISON AVENURE, HOWEVER, HE BUMPED INTO DARTMOUTH FRIEND MIKE MCCLINTOCK, WHO THAT VERY MORNING HAD STARTED A JOB AS AN EDITOR IN THE VANGUARD PRESS CHILDREN'S SECTION. WITHIN HOURS, THE MEN SIGNED A CONTRACT, AND IN 1937 VANGUARD PRESS PUBLISHED 'AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET', WHICH LAUNCHED THE EXTRAORDINARY LITERARY CAREER OF DR. SEUSS. 'IF I HAD BEEN GOING DOWN THE OTHER SIDE OF MADISON AVENUE, I'D BE IN THE DRY-CLEANING BUSINESS TODAY', HE SAID LATER." This remarkable Association copy is lacking its dustjacket and does show light soiling (especially at the rear panel), a bit of wear along the edges and clear tape evenly reinforcing the spine. There's also pencil to the copyright page and light creasing along the lower-edges of the pages. Still though, it's solidly Good+ to VG- and is sturdy and very presentable. And, given the incredible story behind the book's publication, this is historically a very important, one-of-a-kind copy. Bookseller Inventory # 12952

"Clearly the Grinch has been the most memorable Christmas villain to undergo redemption since Ebenezer Scrooge. To some degree, Ted identified with the Grinch When asked why he wrote the book, Dr. Seuss replied, I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noted a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote the story about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously Id lost. It was no coincidence that, when the book appeared in 1957, the Grinch complained, For fifty-three years Ive put up with it now Ted, of course, was born in 1904 After The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch, Teds reputation grew exponentially" (Cohen, 329-30).
