A Time Magazine Cover Signed by James Thurber

A copy of Time magazine with James Thurber's inscription and signature on the July 9, 1951 cover shows his hand to be sadly shaky and unsure in the extreme. His failed vision surely was responsible for this. His self-portrait with dogs is endearing enough, but just think of what he could have done with this space a mere decade earlier! Time's editors outdid themselves with the headline "James Thurber: A Sure Grasp of Confusion."
