"I DO NOT LIKE THEM HERE OR THERE. I DO NOT LIKE THEM ANYWHERE!"
SEUSS, Dr. Green Eggs and Ham. New York: Beginner Books, 1960. Octavo, original glazed orange pictorial boards, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.
First edition of Seuss' popular primer for beginning readers.
Sam-I-Am's persistent plea for trying new things remains one of the best-selling books in the English language as well as one of Seuss' most enduring works. Like many of the most beloved Seuss titles, Green Eggs and Ham is exceptionally scarce in the first edition. Later issue-dust jacket, with "50 Word Vocabulary" printed instead of a sticker. Younger & Hirsch 27.
Book about-fine, dust near-fine with only slight soiling and light wear to extremities. A lovely and rare copy.
