    Description

    Playboy V2#9 (HMH Publishing, 1955) Condition: FN+. The September, 1955 issue with a great "news article" styled cover featuring the Playboy bachelor bunny admiring Marilyn Monroe, dressed in a showgirl costume. She is featured in the spread inside as well. In the article, she has been recruited for the grand opening of a circus in Madison Square Garden and rides a pink (!) elephant! Beautiful, well-designed "Mad Men-esque" design and ad layout throughout the magazine. From the days when Playboy was the last word in the swingin' bachelor lifestyle. Not listed in Overstreet.
