    Description

    Parade of Pleasure #nn (Derek Verschoyle Limited, 1954) Condition: VG. Although not as famous as Dr. Fredric Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, this book similarly assaulted the 1950s comic book industry for its harmful effects upon the youth of America. It's the book (as POP) you'll see cited in Overstreet numerous times, which in turn creates an instant collectible! The dustjacket is in GD condition, and the book is in VG condition, with writing on some pages. Comes with two Xerox copies of the dustjacket, suitable for framing (3 items total). Overstreet 2017 VG 4.0 value = $516. From the Philip M. Levine Collection.
