"YOU'RE IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE FOR THE SHAPE YOU ARE IN!"

SEUSS, Dr. You're Only Old Once! New York: Random House, (1986). Quarto, original half brown cloth, original dust jacket.

First trade edition of Seuss' picture book "for obsolete children."

"In You're Only Old Once! Ted was less a storyteller or narrator than a memoirist. The book was his unexpected lamentation about the infirmities of age and the indignities of the health-care system, written when he was 'fed up with a social life consisting entirely of doctors" (Morgan, 261). The book saw publication on Geisel's 82nd birthday. Published in the same year as the signed limited edition of 500 copies. Younger & Hirsch 83A.

Book fine, dust jacket near-fine with light soiling and mild toning to spine.
