About this Item: Random House., NY., 1957. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition , first state book in the original flat paper over boards , NY , 1957. Spine extremities and tips a bit worn otherwise very good+ in dust jacket. In order of appearance this is the first state of the book issued in the second state of the dust jacket. The original price of the book has been the cause of some confusion in the past. Originally the book was published in flat paper boards. The price on the dust jacket was ( $ 2.00 ). When Random House decided to issue a set of books titled The Beginner Reader Series they agreed to price ALL the forthcoming books at ( $ 1.95 ). Which was quite ODD because the book price actually went down as time went by. BUT in the interim the Publisher bound up whatever remaining copies of the FIRST ISSUE of the Cat in The Hat book and issued it with a dust jacket that had no price at all. Agreed by researchers today that this is the Second state dust jacket and quite scarce. Precedes the ( $ 1.95 ) issues. It is agreed that All copies bound in flat paper boards are first states of the book , ALL 3 states of the jacket are noted here. A fun time in research and now clear to most. The copy offered here is the FIRST state book in the Second State ( unpriced ) dust jacket. Overall a very good or better jacket and book. Seller Inventory # 007378

About this Item: New York: Random House, 1957. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. Seuss, Dr. (illustrator). First Edition. Illustrated by Seuss. First edition, first printing. Publisher's blue pictorial paper-covered boards with an illustration of the Cat in the Hat lettered in white, red, and black to front board, blue pictorial endpapers with illustrations matching boards; in the original matching pictorial dust jacket with "200/200" price to front flap. A very good copy, spine shaken and somewhat fragile, light wear to edges, interior very clean and bright; in a very good dust jacket with some wear and creasing to extremities, a few chips around spine ends. Overall, a bright copy of the scarce first printing of this classic children's story. The Cat in the Hat is a short children's book published by Theodore Geisel under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss that tells the story of a young boy and girl whose quiet rainy day at home is disrupted by the arrival of the mischievous Cat in the Hat. A significant text in the history of children's literature, The Cat in the Hat is both the book that brought Geisel literary fame and revolutionized the way children learned to read. It was published in response to a perceived literary crisis and was supposed to inspire a love for reading in young students that was not facilitated by the traditional Dick and Jane readers; as the dust jacket explains, The Cat in the Hat opens "the door to the wondrous discovery that reading can be fun!" To achieve this goal, Geisel created the story from only 223 words that were considered within the reading ability of the average first grade student in the United States based on the phonetic skills and vocabulary required of the national first grade primer. Interestingly, Houghton Mifflin proposed the idea of using a set number of words on the first grade primer to create a text geared towards students, but Seuss had a pre-established contract with Random House. Accordingly, Random House published this first trade edition while Houghton Mifflin retained the right for school publications. Seller Inventory # DS006

From the introduction to First Editions of Dr. Seuss Books: A Guide to Identification by Helen and Marc Younger and Dan Hirsch- The Cat in the Hat brought the basic concepts of reading to tens and thousands of children who were learning to read without being taught. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. It was a marked departure from the traditional Dick and Jane type readers. Teachers found that it especially motivated inner-city students and slower readers.". Seller Inventory # 38623

About this Item: Random House, NY, 1957. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Very Good. First Edition, First Issue. 61 pages bound in one signature. Contents very clean without any names nor marks. There are no creases or tears or soil to any of the pages. The hinges are firm with no sign of cracks The matte paper over boards cover is sharp, bright, clean & square. The tips are gently rubbed; slight rubbing to top & bottom of spine. The spine has a couple of dings to the paper & a few tiny dings to the spine's edge. The scarce book is in exceptional condition, a conservative VG+, well above other copies I've seen available. The very uncommon first issue dustjacket has the $2.00 price (unclipped) and is very bright, clean, sharp, without tears. Corners gently rubbed. Top & bottom of spine has slight creasing covering 1/2" to 1 inch. Its unfortunate defect is a jagged piece of paper measuring 3 1/2" by 1/3" that is missing along the spine. It has taken out the "Dr. Seuss" and the "RAN" (in Random House). There is a tiny piece that obscures the "T" in "Hat". A professional paper conservator could reproduce the missing piece and marry it to the rest of the jacket. If not for the missing piece of spine paper, the jacket is very bright, VG+. The photo scans of the jacket are taken without the mylar cover. With the Brodart, the jacket looks even better. Please "Ask Bookseller" if this is available before ordering. Size: 8vo.
