Dr Seuss's ABC was first published in 1963. This edition was reprinted no later than 1965, based on the dust jacket design, referred to as Back "R" used for select jackets through the end of 1968, and the order of books listed on the back flap. The most recent Beginner Book listed, Fox In Socks, and the most recent of the larger sized books, I had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew, were both published in 1965.

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.
