    Dr. Seuss's First Book And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street Inscribed and Signed By Seuss

    Dr. Seuss. And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street. New York: The Vanguard Press, [1937].

    Second printing of Seuss's first book, Inscribed on the verso of the front free endpaper and additionally signed and dated by Dr. Seuss.

    Original white paper spine and illustrated boards. Illustrated dust jacket. Faint soiling and light wear to boards and endpapers, internally very clean. Original dust jacket slightly browned and foxed, with a circular damp stain on the front panel and a two-inch chip on the front affecting a few letters. Altogether, a very good copy.

    Humorously inscribed by Dr. Seuss, who made a false start and scribbled out the error, then added "Mistake" in a box with an arrow. His successful inscription reads: "For Bradley Kelly, with best wishes, Dr. Seuss." Dr Seuss additionally signed and dated the same page in 1986.
