    Dr. Seuss [Theodor Geisel]. Bartholomew and the Oobleck. Written and Illustrated by Dr. Seuss. New York: Random House, [1949].

    Quarto. Not paginated. Delightfully illustrated in black and green throughout the text.

    Publisher's illustrated glossy red paper over boards with the front and back covers illustrated in white, black, and green, and lettered in white. Spine lettered in white. Red dust jacket illustrated identically to the covers. Price snipped from top right corner of the front inner flap of the dust jacket. Illustrated endpapers. Minor bumping to the head, foot, and corner of the covers and jacket, small closed tears to the jacket edges, jacket spine is slightly rubbed, previous owner's rubber stamp mark on the front pastedown endpaper, title page, and rear endpapers, previous owner's inscription on the front free endpaper. Altogether a very good copy.

    Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 - September 24, 1991), popularly known as Dr. Seuss, is beloved for his charming and imaginative children's books. Bartholomew and the Oobleck is the sequel to The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, which was published in 1938. Unlike the majority of Seuss' books, he utilized prose rather than verse to compose this story. This work is not a first edition due to the red covers and dust jacket rather than the first edition blue covers and jacket.
