New York: Random House, 1957. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Dr. Seuss' famous Christmas story. Book Near Fine with soiling to the inner board edges, otherwise unmarked and very attractive. First issue dust jacket is price-clipped, but has 14 titles on rear flap and advertises "The Cat in the Hat" at $2.00 on the rear panel. Jacket also Near Fine with a touch of wear at the spine ends and a short (half inch) closed tear at the crown. A much nicer example than typically encountered. Named one of the Top 100 Picture Books of all time by "School Library Journal," it's the time-honored story of discovering the true joy of Christmas. Considered one of his best, Dr. Seuss wrote the book in 1957 and managed to complete in it in only a few weeks, with his wife acting as editor. The book would be adapted into a fondly remembered television special in 1966 and a feature film in 2000. "His peculiar and original genius in line and word is always the same, yet, so rich are the variations he plays on his themes, always fresh and amusing." (Contemporary New York Herald Tribune Review). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
