    With a Wonderful Inscription to His Wife's Piano Teacher

    Dr. Seuss. Inscribed copy of The Seven Lady Godivas. New York: Random House, [1939].

    First edition, stated on copyright page. Inscribed by Dr. Seuss on verso of front free endpaper. Octavo. Unpaginated. Illustrations by the author. Scarce "Godiva Book Mark" is laid in.

    Original salmon cloth boards, pictorial endpapers, and original dust jacket with price of $1.75 at top of front flap. Very light wear to spine ends of binding, resulting in a tiny amount of fraying. Strip of browning to endpapers at gutter. The front free endpaper has a three-inch split running up along gutter edge. Faint toning along edges of pages. Dust jacket has darkened along spine and at folds; minor rubbing, creasing and a few closed tears at edges. A remarkably bright copy in near fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
