FIRST EDITION OF I CAN READ WITH MY EYES SHUT!, WONDERFULLY INSCRIBED BY SEUSS TO A SALESPERSON AT RANDOM HOUSE, WITH TWO PHOTOGRAPHS SIGNED BY DR. SEUSS AND A SIGNED AUTOGRAPH LETTER AND HAND-ADDRESSED ENVELOPE ALSO FROM SEUSS

SEUSS, Dr. I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! New York: Random House, (1978). Quarto, original pictorial paper boards. $8800.

First edition of Seuss’ celebration of reading, whimsically inscribed by him with his characteristic flourish to a salesperson at Random House: "for John Markham (with Admiration for all John Markhamses). Dr. Seuss," accompanied by two black and white photographs of Seuss signed by him; a signed autograph letter on Cat in the Hat stationery reading: "Dear John… It was GREAT! Every minute of it… even including the P.T.A. Thank you so much for everything! Ted / Dr. Seuss," and an envelope hand-addressed by Seuss.

The Cat in the Hat teaches a young protégé—and Seuss' devoted audience—about the joys of reading. Issued without dust jacket. Younger & Hirsch 39. This copy is inscribed to John Markham, who was a longtime sales rep at McGraw Hill and Random House. While he had a long association with Seuss and his works, he also worked with famous adult authors such as Cormac McCarthy.

Fine condition.
