    Playboy 1954-55 Bound Volume (HMH Publishing, 1954-55). The second full year of Playboy in a professionally bound volume. Included are two of the most coveted issues of all - the January, 1955 issue featuring Bettie Page as Playmate, and the February, 1955 issue with Jayne Mansfield as the Playmate of the Month. Another all-time favorite, Janet Pilgrim, was Playmate twice during this year. Other non-Playmate pictorial subjects include Marilyn Monroe, Anita Ekberg, and Gina Lollobrigida. Literary contributors included Ray Bradbury, Erskine Caldwell, and W. Somerset Maugham. All copies were choice specimens at the time they were bound, averaging Fine to Very Fine. All have minor notations on the front covers, usually the year 1955 written in pencil.
