DR. SEUSS PENNED A NUDEY BOOK BACK IN 1939 THAT ONLY SOLD 2,500 COPIES

We all know Dr Seuss’ children’s books, but what you might not know about the author – whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel – is that he also penned a book in 1939 where all of the characters were in the nude. And they were all women.

The Seven Lady Godivas is the name of the book, and it tells the story of seven very naked ladies who were ‘simply themselves and chose not to disguise it’ – that’s how Seuss explained the nakedness anyway.

This adult book was part of Geisel’s conditions when he moved publisher from Vanguard to Random House. Permission was granted and Seuss sat down to pen a ‘beautiful story of love, honour and scientific achievement’.

The book initially only sold 2,500 copies but was reprinted in 1987.
