    Morse's Funnies #1 Third Edition 8/12 (Albert Morse, 1974) Condition: VF. Here's one Underground you'll never find in a head shop, racked up next to Zap and Freak Brothers. Morse's Funnies was a special book compiled by Albert Morse, lawyer to such well-known Underground cartoonists as R. Crumb, Dave Sheridan, Art Spiegelman, Bill Griffith, Spain, Greg Irons, Dan O'Neill, Justin Green, Guy Colwell, Trina Robbins, Aline Kominsky... the list goes on and on. All those artists and more are represented in this deluxe, final edition of a book compiled just for Albert and his friends. Included are extra sketches and photos (exclusive to this edition, including a portrait of Albert and self-portrait by each artist, as well as a photo of each taken by Albert), with a classic cover by Crumb; the interiors are one-sided photocopies. The cover has been signed and numbered by Albert, a certificate of authenticity is included, also signed, plus a one-page history and a genealogy. Only 12 or so of these final versions were made, making it the rarest version of all. This third edition is not listed in Fogel's Underground Price Guide. From the Albert Morse, Esq. Collection.
