    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.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
