About this Item: n.d, New York. Letter. Condition: Fine. Nice letter SIGNED by this New Yorker artist and creator of The Addams Family with a Signal Corps return address. In full: "I was very pleased to hear all the wonderful things you say about me and that you took the trouble to tell me about it. The thing was given to Steinberg in exchange for one of his wonderful drawings last Monday so I'm afraid I can't help you on that score. I'm quite flattered that your brother managed to laugh at it - I need a laugh myself after three years in the Army. Sincerely (Sgt) Chas Addams.". Seller Inventory # 007115

About this Item: Simon and Schuster, 1960. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. The sixth anthology of drawings by Charles Addams, published by Simon & Schuster, 1960, stated First Printing. 96 pages of black & white cartoons plus two color illustrations to the front and back pages facing the covers. Also includes a full page, hand drawn cartoon opposite the title page, inscribed "To John" and signed Chas Addams New York 1960 with the same pen he used to draw the cartoon. The cartoon has a 1 inch tear to the top edge as well as some handling wear and some light toning to the edges. The rest of the book is in about Good to Good plus overall condition. There is general wear to the covers and the corner tips are heavily rubbed, the bottom ones worn through. The front inside cover looks like it has weakened with the many years of use and looks like it will soon begin to separate (but hasn't yet) and the back color page has creases. There are also a few random spots to the interior, probably food or dirty fingers turning pages from the bottom. There is no writing and the spine and binding are still straight and solid. The cover is fairly soiled and worn out. A quick doodle or sketch are commonly found with Addams`s signature, but not large detailed cartoons such as this from this master of the macabre, and with a "get well" sentiment to boot! Would make a great addition to any signed Charles Addams, dark humor, or original cartoon collection. (Note: Photos may show magnified dust, a flash reflection, or color washout.) Paypal always welcome. We pack all our books with care and ship in cardboard boxes or priority envelopes secured with cardboard. Additional photos emailed upon request. Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: 0, 0. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. CHARLES ADDAMS (illustrator). 1st Edition. CHARLES ADDAMS LARGE ORIGINAL DRAWING OF WEDNESDAY ADDAMS WITH PSA/DNA CERTIFICATE FRAMED ORIGINAL BOLD FELT TIP DRAWING OF WEDNESDAY ADDAMS AN EXCEPTIONALLY LARGE, SCARCE 10? STUNNING DRAWING OF WEDNESDAY ADDAMS W. COA/LOA THE ART IS IN FINE CONDITION AND WAS CUSTOM MATTED, FRAMED AND GLAZED. A VERY STUNNING PIECE! FRAMED SIZE: 18? X 11? A bold, enormous original Charles Addams drawing in felt tip on heavy paper stock, signed by Charles Addams along the bottom as ?Chas Addams?. The piece was matted such as only the drawing of Wednesday and the signature are showcased (with the balance of the page located beneath the mat which had the rest of the original inscription). This fantastic piece showcases a HUGE 10? size drawing of Wednesday in strong vibrant black felt tip, in a classic pose, with her long stringy hair (extremely scarce as the rare few original Addam?s sketches tend to be 4? or less in size). This is the largest we have seen! The art was custom matted, framed and glazed and is presented in a black wood rubbed gloss frame (using archival materials and UV glass). The piece will come with a Certificate of Authenticity (LOA/COA), from PSA/DNA. A premier authentication house (please see images). Note, Addams sketches are extremely scarce, and are more typically rendered as much smaller pen and inks. CONDITION: The page has two lines of very small inconspicuous little perforation holes running horizontal to the page, else near fine with slight toning to the paper, more prominent to the lower edge With a proclivity to the grim, grisly and gruesome, Charles Addams walked through life illuminating its incongruous funny bones and sore spots. Addams contributed to The New Yorker for more than fifty years, and his work can be found in the permanent collections of The New York Public Library and The Library of Congress. In 1935 Addams was hired by The New Yorker as a regular cartoonist. The pay was modest?just $35 per cartoon?but the magazine allowed him to explore his voice and imagination as well as hone the dark humor that would come to define his work. His famous, ?creepy and kooky? Addams Family, later adapted for television and film productions. He demonstrated an appreciation for the macabre at an early age. He had a deep fascination for coffins and skeletons, as well as a good practical joke. ?We had a dumbwaiter in our house,? he later recounted, ?and I?d get inside on the ground floor, and then very quietly I?d haul myself up to grandmother?s floor, and then I?d knock on the door, and when she came to open the door, I?d jump out and scare the wits out of her.? Addams?s mind went to dark, ghoulish places few cartoonists would allow themselves to venture. His popularity extended to some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Cary Grant wanted to meet the man who called himself ?A Defrocked Ghoul,? as did Alfred Hitchcock, who once showed up at Addams?s New York home unannounced to see the cartoonist in the flesh. The ?Addams family? cartoons delighted in turning upside down our assumptions about normality and its relationship to good and evil. Charles Addams tapped into the vein of American gothic that has a touch of paranoia about it, seeing behind every comforting façade the uncomfortable truth about the duality of human nature. But where Gothic literature usually combined these themes with romance, Addams made the horror hilarious: disturbing, but at the same time friendly, identifiable, and acceptable. A very stunning piece and showcases very well. The unique mat creates a half round oval along the top setting off the artwork! Perfect for the collector/lover of Charles Addams. Please note that original published artwork by Charles Addams has recently seen lofty price increases with auction prices of his published artwork at recently selling at auction for upwards of $24,000, and other much smaller sketches have sold in the $4000 range!

About this Item: Undated (probably 1960s); a finished drawing; black and white wash on paper, mounted on illustration board; approximately 13 x 13'; signed 'Chas Addams.' A small pencilled technical note for reproduction is at the bottom right hand margin. Not captioned in the drawing; it depicts a tree house with a boy on its deck, arms crossed, while another child peers malevolently through a window. Excellent condition. Addams' preliminary sketches were often done in pencil; later versions were accomplished with a combination of pen and ink and wash. The finished pieces (aside from the pen and ink line drawings of his early efforts) were wash drawings, some of which were subsequently redrawn for publication, presumably for editorial or aesthetic reasons, such as changing the characters, perspective, or location (i.e. indoors v. outdoors). Given that we've not yet located a record of its appearance in print, this cartoon might be unpublished. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted.

About this Item: A larger than usual cartoon sketch, approximately 13 1/2 x 17 1/2'; matted, framed and glazed. The cartoon depicts the shop window of 'Henry Grey: Mortician' below which are displayed testimonials from satisfied customers (i.e.: 'To Hank, I'll be seein ya pal.). Signed in pencil and noted 'Final 17 Aug 56.' Addams employed mortician storefronts in several of his cartoons. This example was probably the last of his pencil sketches for this piece, the notation 'Final' likely referred to approval to complete it in pen, ink and wash for publication. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Seller Inventory # 25285
