See Magazines, 1969. V13 N13, Dec 1969. Distributed by Kable. Vintage adult magazine once a major competitor of PLAYBOY. This issue notable for having been recalled in late 1969 due to a potential "blindness and death" warning issued by the Food & Drug Administration, stating that bodily harm could occur if the reader followed instructions on pp. 52-54 to "dissolve any two of these magazine pages in methyl alcohol - and drink the mixture." The reader was then suggested to look again at the blurry images to test their vision. CAPER states "the ink used in printing this issue has been mixed with diphenylphloroamyl-2-benzoate, a most powerful hallucinogen." While all this sounds fun, methyl alcohol is a deadly poison, and the diphenylphloroamyl has never to be identified, thus nonexistent. Other features: Janine Labrune (layout), sultry blonde Ramona Elliott, space virgins fiction, Lee Marvin interview, lesbians, Sin art, "Lucrezia Borgia" film review, Rodrigues art, lithe Tracy Reeves, hot Sharon Wilson (center/layout), slender Phil Bloom, junkies. Lili St. Cyr lingerie ad. Approx 82pp, b/w/color. Very Good Plus, rubbing, light spine stress, foxing. Scarce, could turnout to be a desirable issue. [Book ID 125284] [Magazines]
