The binding is now slightly loose. This is a first UK edition of the first anthology of drawings of the enormously popular Addams family series whose author died in 1988. Only a few of the cartoons feature the Addams Family, while others reflect the wartime conditions. During World War II, Addams served at the Signal Corps Photographic Center in New York, where he made animated training films for the U.S. Army. In late 1942, he met his first wife, Barbara Jean Day, who purportedly resembled his cartoon character Morticia Addams. The marriage ended eight years later, after Addams, who hated small children, refused to adopt one. She later married New Yorker colleague John Hersey, author of the book Hiroshima.
