"IN THE PLACES I GO THERE ARE THINGS THAT I SEE THAT I NEVER COULD SPELL IF I STOPPED WITH THE Z"

SEUSS, Dr. On Beyond Zebra. New York: Random House, (1955). Quarto, original pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. $1600.

First edition of Seuss' paean to free thinking.

"The story of the boy whose philosophy is 'most people stop with the Z but not me!' encapsulates all that has made Dr. Seuss so important and endearing. Fundamentally, the book posits the empowerment of children through the use of their imagination. Instead of rote memorization of that which has been given to them, there is excitement to be found in what has come to be known as 'thinking outside the box'… This kind of thinking was, for the times, downright radical" (Cohen, 316). Younger & Hirsch 63.

Book with light marginal soiling to interior; bright dust jacket near-fine, with slight soiling, chip to head of spine just touching title, and light rubbing to extremities. An attractive copy.
