Horton Hatches the Egg.
First edition, first printing. Considered one of the hardest Seuss titles to find in the first printing and with the un-restored dust jacket.
Quarto. Original brown buckram, titles to front cover in red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a cream cloth slipcase. Illustrated throughout by the author. Small bookseller’s ticket to rear pastedown. Extremities a touch sunned, board edges slightly bumped, spine cocked. An excellent copy in a lightly soiled and toned jacket with nicked and creased extremities, and a couple of small chips, partially affecting “Mulberry” on the front panel.
