Incredible Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss) Hand-Drawn and Signed “Cat In The Hat” On Vintage Dr. Seuss Stationery.

Original sketch of “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss, accomplished in colored pencil and crayon on an off-white 7.25" x 10.5" sheet of vintage Dr. Seuss letterhead.

The sketch shows the famous cat with a large yellow sign emerging from his hat, which reads: "Testimonial, Geisel is currently getting more fan mail about Cynthia Lindsay's article than he is about all his books combined," with Dr. Seuss signing below with his given name, "Thanks for a swell, swell job! Come down and see us. oooo Ted."

In Very Good to Fine condition with noticeable toning from prior display, and the handwriting has faded, but remains completely readable. Writer and journalist Cynthia Lindsay wrote a glowing article in the December 1960 issue of Good Housekeeping entitled "The Miracle of Dr. Seuss."

This is one of the only sketches that has been authenticated of “The Cat in the Hat." Incredibly rare is an understatement for this piece.

Authentication: PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
