New York: The Viking Press, 1931. Dr. Seuss (Geisel, Theodore Seuss). 4th Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good / Fair. Item #2336447
4th printing. Very good in fair jacket. Ink gift note on front endpaper, two large chips from front jacket edge, some loss from jacket spine head and foot, jacket spine faded.
viii, 89,  pp. A collection of humorous errors in phrasing, together with illustrations by the famous Dr. Seuss, though this work was published over five years before the release of his first children's book in 1937. From the foreword: "With the success of Boners, misinformation has finally assumed its rightful place in the American home, relegated the more exact sciences to the dusty cupboards and shelves. The pyorrhean springs of knowledge have dried up; educators have been forced to change their systems of grading ("E" is now Summa cum laude; "A" is once again a scarlet letter)... The Millennium is at hand. Down with Information!"
