Description

    Parade of Pleasure Signed by Geoffrey Wagner (Library Publishers, 1955) Condition: FN. Although not as famous as Dr. Fredric Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, this book made similar attacks on the comic book industry of the 1950s over perceived harmful effects on the youth of America. Like SOTI, it too is often cited in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, giving it a degree of notoriety. This copy has been signed by the author on the title page. The original dust jacket is intact, and this lot is also accompanied by a photocopy of the British dust jacket, suitable for framing. Overstreet 2016 FN 6.0 value = $774. From the Philip M. Levine Collection.
