The Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss
21 Dr. Seuss The Cat in the Hat
New York Random House 1957 Fourth Printing Hardcover 
Very good with first gathering pulled, shelf wear to top and bottom edges, glossy paper-covered boards. The dust jacket has wear and tiny tears at head and foot of spine and less so at corners, very good. This copy meets the criteriia cited in Younger and Hirsch 4th variant with dust jacket having a $1.95 price and the black seal "For Beginning Readers." Dr. Seuss's name is lettered in red on front panel. This copy would seem to be earlier than those with the more modern looking black and white "I Can Read It By Myself seal, and in which Dr. Seuss's name is lettered in white on front panel. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 61 pp
