"WITH WHOM I USED TO ROLLER-SKATE… DURING THE MOST WONDERFUL YEARS OF MY YOUNG LIFE": FIRST EDITION OF SCRAMBLED EGGS SUPER!, WONDERFULLY INSCRIBED BY SEUSS TO A CHILDHOOD FRIEND

SEUSS, Dr. Scrambled Eggs Super! New York: Random House, (1953). Quarto, original pictorial paper boards, pictorial endpapers, original pictorial dust jacket. $6200.

First edition of Seuss' tenth book, his riotous recipe for a most unusual breakfast, warmly inscribed by him to a childhood friend: "For Judy Kay, with whom I used to roller-skate down Wonderview Drive during the most wonderful years of my Young Life.—Best Wishes—Dr. Seuss."

Seuss' bright, whimsical pictures and bouncing, tongue-twisting text follow a young boy on his epic quest in search of the ingredients for "Scrambled Eggs Super-Dee-Dooper-dee-Booper, Special de luxe à-la-Peter T. Hooper." Devoted Seuss enthusiasts will note that this book contains his first reference to a Grinch (though not, apparently, the one who would, four years later, attempt to steal Christmas). Younger & Hirsch 68.

Book with expert repairs to joints and extremities; bright dust jacket with expert restoration to extremities. A very good inscribed copy.
