    Dr. Seuss "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins" Signed by Dr. Seuss (Vanguard Press, 1938). With their trademark rhyming text and outlandish creatures, Dr. Theodore Seuss Geisel's numerous children's books have become staples for kids and grown-ups alike, and have played a major role in promoting literacy among adolescents. This is a first edition, later printing of Dr. Seuss' second book (after And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street), inscribed "For the first grandchild of Josh and Fay Burnett, with best wishes," and signed by Seuss in blue ink en verso of the first free end paper. Numerous illustrations throughout, printed in black, white, and red, all by the author. In Very Good condition with mild to moderate wear and bumping to edges and corners, and moderate to heavy wear and tear to the dust jacket. The binding is solid, the pages clean and white, and the signature is fine and bold. A fabulous collector's item.
