    Playboy Group (HMH Publishing, 1954). More hard to find copies from Playboy's first year: issues #6-13 in average Fine. Issue #6 is in FN/VF; #7 in VF. The page quality of these copies is indicative of even higher grades, with off-white to white pages. Issue #13 appears FN, but centerfold, while present inside the copy, is detached. "1954" is written in ink on the front of issues #8 and 9; "54" on #11 and 13. Highlights include works by Ray Bradbury, Erskine Caldwell, W. Somerset Maugham, and Ray Russell; and pictorials on Gina Lollobrigida and Nudity in The Foreign Film.
