    Playboy Complete Second Year Bound Volume (HMH Publishing, 1954-55). The second full year of Playboy in a professionally bound volume. Included are issues from December, 1954 through December, 1955 -- 12 issues (there was no March, 1955 issue produced). The volume is in extremely nice condition - Very Fine overall. The magazines have been trimmed in the binding process, but otherwise appear to be Very Fine or better. The highlight issue is January, 1955 in which 1950s pinup queen Bettie Page appeared as the Playmate of the Month, making that issue one of the most popular among collections in the entire run. Other Playmates represented here include Jayne Mansfield and Janet Pilgrim. Pictorials: Anita Ekberg, Eartha Kitt, Gina Lollobrigida, Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Tempest Storm, and Bunny Yeager. Fiction: Ray Bradbury, Erskine Caldwell, W. Somerset Maugham, and John Steinbeck. From the JCD Collection.
