First edition of Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss, in second state dust jacket.
Quarto, [unpaginated]. Tan hardcover, title in black on front cover. Solid text block, spine tips lightly bumped, a near fine example. In the publisher’s second state dust jacket, short closed tears along edges, some wear along spine edges and flap folds, faint sunning to spine. The second printing, lacking the “first printing” statement on copyright page and 200/200 on dust jacket flaps. (Younger & Hirsch, 31)
