Bosomy Beauties (2 vintage adult pinup digest magazines, 1950s)


New York: Marr Publishers / Phoebe Publishers / Burmel, 1950s. Two vintage adult digest magazines featuring voluptuous women, posing seminude & emphasizing their natural assets, w/ heels, hose, garters, notably Pamela Green as Rita Landre.


Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, it seems. Early issues featured several models per issue & many maintain airbrushing techniques rolled over from nudist magazines, much of the posing naturally obscures otherwise censored areas. Still scarce institutionally. 


N2 (28pp, 5.25 x 8.25 inches, photography by Marno, burlesque legend Jennie Lee 4pp, Cherrie Knight 6pp, a few other buxom gals); 

Rita Landre, N18 (32pp, 5 x 7.75 inches, Burmel Publishing Company statement on last p, Pamela oft in wig 23pp, a few other buxom gals). 


Both color wrapper, B/W throughout. Very Good Plus overall, light rubbing, price notations, 1p starting (N2).
