Green Eggs And Ham was first published in 1960. This edition's 10-digit ISBN and materials date it circa mid-1970s. We'd need the dust jacket to date it more precisely.

Theodor Seuss Geisel, "Dr. Seuss", (1904 - 1991) was an American writer and cartoonist who created more than 60 books for children. He began his career as an illustrator and advertiser, but soon found his passion for writing and drawing whimsical characters and stories. Some of his most famous books are Horton Hears a Who, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax, and Oh, the Places You'll Go! He won many awards for his work, including a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation in 1984.
