Price: $45.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Good


A collection of humorous misstatements and anecdotes by students and pupils who, eventually, found themselves in charge of the world, probably explaining the progressively deteriorating state of the damn thing today (although some entries do merit some serious thought: "Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock," and "Milton wrote 'Paradise Lost'; then his wife died and he wrote 'Paradise Regained.'"). The first book by Geisel/Seuss, and uncommon in first edition/first printing. Red cloth w/black lettering to front cover/spine, 102 pages. Moderately bumped/worn corners/spine ends, dampstaining to right edge of front cover/spine/top left corner of back cover, cloth of back cover wrinkled (printing flaw? dampstaining?), smudged edges, tanning, rear hinge partially split (but holding strong).
