“My Crowd” First Edition Signed - 1970
Signed First Edition of the darkly humorous cartoon collection My Crowd by the legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, simply autographed at the top of the title page in black marker. Signed First Printings are uncommon; this book is not inscribed to anyone, nor are there previous owner’s markings. Illustrated full color hardcover in very good condition without dust jacket.
Long before sick humor was in vogue, the deliciously ghoulish cartoons of Charles Addams had established his reputation as one of the deans of American comic art. The New Yorker published its first Addams cartoon in 1932, and his cast of genial ghouls, friendly freaks, and the famous family brought a touch of gleeful creepiness to its pages for more than five decades.
This classic collection of more than 200 cartoons, from the master of the macabre at his most diabolical, contains the best cartoons from his first six books and is sure to delight both fans and cartoon connoisseurs.
