    Description

    Playboy 1959 Complete Year Bound Volume (HMH Publishing, 1959). Gorgeous copies, apparently fresh off the press were trimmed and bound for this library-worthy volume, itself in Near Mint condition. Even the inserts of the magazines are still intact. This was the first year that Hugh Hefner's still fledgling publication began selling more than 1,000,000 copies per month. Contributors this year included Jack Cole, Jules Feiffer, Jack Kerouac, Shel Silverstein, and Gahan Wilson. Notable Playmates were Ellen Stratton (POY), Donna Lynn, Elaine Reynolds, and Yvette Vickers. Pictorials include Brigitte Bardot, Tina Louise, Joyce Nizzari, Kim Novak, and June Wilkinson. Not listed in Overstreet.
