Book of the Week #10

The Beginnings of Dr. Seuss: An Informal Reminiscence by Theodor Seuss Geisel; edited by Edward Connery Lathem together with an introduction by President James Wright. (Hanover, NH: Dartmouth College, 2004)

Theodor Geisel graduated from Dartmouth in 1925. His first book as Dr. Seuss-- And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937 after it had been rejected by 27 different publishers.

This volume is the tale of what happened between those two events, mostly in Geisel's own words. It was originally published in the April 1976 number of the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine and was published in this volume in commemoration of the one-hundredth anniversary of Geisel's birth. He was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Mass.
The image I chose for this week is the title page of the book which includes the Dr. Seuss postage stamp issued in 2004.
