    Description

    Esquire Girl Calendar 1955 (Esquire Publishing Co., 1955). Before there was Playboy, the premier men's magazine was Esquire, which began publication 20 years before Hugh Hefner's brainchild. And before "the Vargas girl", there was "the Petty girl" although Vargas, a Petty contemporary, had also served up his fare in Esquire before becoming an icon in the '60s with his Playboy work. Esquire had popularized its own pinup calendars before Playboy even existed, and the 1955 edition featured the delightful pinup illustrations of George Petty. The calendar's in Near Mint condition; its original sleeve in about Fine, with a stain at the top and a small piece out at right bottom corner.
