Description

    Lot of Six Books by Dr. Seuss, including: The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. New York: The Vanguard Press, [1938]. This appears to be a later printing of the first edition (the hats become increasingly larger on the front endpapers indicating it is not a first printing, but the back flap of the dust jacket indicates the price of Mulberry Street at $1.00, a first edition point). Light fading to spine ends of binding. Price-clipped jacket has light wear, including a sunned and chipped spine. Overall, a very good copy of Seuss's second book. [and:] The King's Stilts. New York: Random House, [1939]. An early edition in a price-clipped jacket. Very good. [and:] McElligot's Pool. New York: Random House, [1947]. Likely first edition (open-mouthed fish on front bright green board and eleven lines on copyright page; 250/250 on front flap, no price on rear flap). Very good copy in lightly worn jacket. [and:] Scrambled Eggs Super! New York: Random House, [1953]. Discreet rubber stamp to rear pastedown. A near fine copy in worn dust jacket. [and:] Horton Hears a Who! New York: Random House, [1954]. Discreet rubber stamp to rear pastedown. Very good. Jacket's spine is sunned. [and:] On Beyond Zebra! New York: Random House, [1955]. Very good. Jacket's spine is sunned.
