About This Item

New York: Random House, 1939. Pictorial cloth. Near Fine. Dr. Seuss. A clean, very sharp copy of the 1939 stated 1st printing. Tight and Near Fine in its pictorial, light-purple cloth. Lacking the original dustjacket, otherwise very impressive. Quarto, wonderfully illustrated in color throughout.


The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family is a picture book of the tale of Lady Godiva, written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss. One of Seuss's few books written for adults, its original 1939 publication by Random House was a failure and was eventually remaindered. However, it later gained popularity as Seuss himself grew in fame, and was republished in 1987.
