A few pages have light thumb creasing. Stated first printing, 1939. Lithographed by Duenewald Printing Corporation.

The first edition was a printing of only 10,000, which did not sell well despite the subject, and partially led Seuss to his decision to delve into writing for children rather than adults. The book features red & black illustrations with a single teal blue image.The front and back pasted interiors feature a Family Tree of the Godivas illustrating Seuss’s interpretation of the Godiva family history with their horses. No mention of a subtitle (The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family) in this edition.
