Signed Postal Cover.

This popular American cartoonist and illustrator trained under "Flash Gordon" cartoonist Alex Raymond before taking over that strip briefly and also the "Secret Agent X-9" strip; co-founded the Famous Artists School; in 1969 he was elected to the Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", n.p., n.y. NOT a First Day Cover, but a mint example of Briggs' 1959 7-cent "Jupiter" balloon stamp is affixed at upper right. At lower left, in black ballpoint, Briggs signs large and bold, adding "(Designer)." With original transmittal envelope (Paris, 1970). A superb example. Item #25196
