New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1957. First Edition, First Printing. Octavo, 61 pages; VG-; bound in publishers blue cloth, no lettering on spine; one moderate bump to the middle of the front hinge; mild shelfwear; This edition was not issued with a Dust Jacket.; This educational edition predates the trade edition by 2 months (the trade edition was released March 1 1957 whereas the educational edition was released in January of 1957). In Dr. Seuss's own words, on June 11, 1956, he wrote to Random House: "Don't ever show this letter to anyone, but I've got a hunch . . . (very immodest) . . . Namely, according to Houghton-Mifflin, who will be releasing my First Grade Reader to schools early in Jan. or Feb., we've got a possibility of making a tremendous noise in the noisy discussion of Why Johnny Can't Read. The Random House trade edition won't come out until later, and the big noise may never come off." At the time, Random House did not use multiple binding signatures, hence the single signature binding of the first printing of the trade edition. Houghton Mifflin had already begun printing books with multiple signature bindings, this is why in later printings of the trade edition Random House actually copies the format of the Houghton Mifflin edition. Also note, Dr. Seuss on the front page is printed in red, as was the first trade edition, however it lacks the "for beginner readers" logo printed on the trade edition (a secretly added feature by Bennett Cerf to make the trade edition more appealing and to boost Random House sales).; Houghton Mifflin had possibly intended to release a children's book series called "Read by Yourself Books" in 1957, and there is a label on the rear cover stating so. shelved case 2.
