New York: Random House, 1955. Hardcover, lacking jacket. Seems to be first edition, based on back cover list of books. Some splitting along spine crease. A pulled tear at back hinge, and it looks like an old repair at front. Some wear and rubbing, as seen in photographs. Former owners have two examples of Seussian words on back page, in pencil and crayon. Now protected in a protective sleeve. Out of print.
