    [Original Drawing]. Charles Addams. Favorite Haunts. New York: Simon and Schuster, [1976]. Book club edition. Signed and inscribed by Addams to Jack Cordes and with an original full page illustration. Quarto. 96 pages. Publisher's binding and dust jacket. Minor edge wear and bumping. Very good. From the collection of first fan, Jack Cordes.

    More Information:

    Minor rubbing to cloth extremities with softly bumped corners and a bit of scuffing to top edge. Jacket shows light rubbing and wear to edges with a few small chips and tears. A very good copy.

    When Cordes sent this book to Addams for a signature, he mentioned in his accompanying note that the Cordes' cat, Ming, also sent along its best wishes to the Addams' dog, Alice B. Curr. Addams found this amusing and inscribed the book to both Cordes and Ming, and also provided a wonderful original drawing that shows Ming thinking of Alice and Alice thinking of the Random House publishing device. Dated 1977.
