    Description

    Playboy Complete Year 1955 Group (HMH Publishing, 1955) Condition: Average VF-. Nice collections of Playboy's second full year can be challenging to assemble. Our consignor has done it for you with this exemplary group. Two of the most collector in-demand issues in the entire 60+ year run are here: the January issue, which featured pin-up queen Bettie Page as the Playmate of the Month, and the February issue which featured the young and not yet famous Jayne Mansfield as Playmate. Both copies are in VF- 7.5 with white pages. All other issues rate 7.0 or 7.5 except May (8.5) and December (6.5), averaging overall 7.5. The April and May issues also sport white pages; the other issues have nice off-white to white pages. Highlights from 1955 include pictorials of Marilyn Monroe, Gina Lollobrigida, Anita Ekberg, Eartha Kitt, and the photography of Bunny Yeager (including Bettie Page); notable Playmates Page, Mansfield, and Janet Pilgrim (twice); and contributions from Ray Bradbury, Erskine Caldwell, Jack Cole, and John Steinbeck.
