A superb original drawing of Puglsey by New Yorker cartoonist, Charles Addams
New York, 1956. 4to. "His signature and inscription, ""To Norman Strickland with best wishes Chas Addams New York 1936,"" together with a ink and gray wash drawing of his character 'Pugsley,' on the front free endpaper of The New Yorker 1950-1955 Album (New York: Harper & Brothers, 1955) 4to, not paginated [c. 100 pp.], chiefly illustrations bound in blue cloth boards bearing the magazine's iconic logo of dandy Eustace Tilley, and black cloth titled spine. Soiling and rubbing to boards and spine, spine cracked with front board partly detached, light dampstains to front and rear pastedowns with an ink notation, a few pages loose at top, some light to moderate soiling. A superb rendering of Addams' character, Pugsley, well before the noted illustrator formally named him. When The Addams Family made its debut in the pages of The New Yorker in 1938, none of the characters had names. Addams only provided them when his cartoon was adapted for television in 1960. "
