Description: DR. SEUSS [THEODOR GEISEL.]
Botanist with Baby. Pen and ink and watercolor on paper. 245x245 mm; 9 1/2x9 1/2 inches. Signed "Dr. S." with the caption in Seuss's hand: "Ups-a-bellis-perennis-leucanthemum!" the Latin version of "Ups-a-Daisy!" Overall scattered foxing, pinholes and discoloration to upper corners. On exhibition mount. April 27, 1929.

Notes: early original drawing published in judge magazine. With preliminary pencil sketch and editorial rubberstamps including date on the verso. A rare early published Seuss drawing (with his short-lived signature "Dr. S."). Geisel made his debut in Judge on Oct. 22, 1927 and it was the first job where he secured a steady, albeit modest, income from his work.--Morgan, Judith & Neil, Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel, page 62.
