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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
