England's Top Models (vintage pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


New York: Sheba Pub. Co., 1950s. Vintage nude pinup digest magazine featuring Lorraine Burnette, Paula Page, Rosina Revelle, & another, posing & emphasizing natural assets, all buxom British models. Many of these models were popular during the heyday of men's magazine production, most posed for British photographer Harrison Marks. Burnette & Page also starred in independent erotic films (nudie loops), Rosina Revelle unsung but immensely popular.


Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, notably Burmel Publishing (Lenny Burtman's enterprise). Many were published as photography and/or art "studies" booklets, w/ technical camera data, exposure chart, & the standard emphasis on sexual liberation; 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. 


32pp, 5.25 x 8.25 inches, B/W throughout, color wrapper, saddle-stapled. Very Good Plus, light rubbing, ink price to front.
