Meet the Girls (vintage adult pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


New York: Riviera Pin Up Corp., 1950s. V 1 N4, c. 1957. Vintage adult digest magazine featuring models posing & emphasizing natural assets, in lingerie, heels, hose, garters, lounging, in the study. Popular buxom Donna "Busty" Brown on the front/9pp/centerfold; also featured is Gypsy Harlow, Linda Montez, & another uncredited model. Donna Mae Brown began modeling early, eventually became a hot number on the striptease circuit, made a few nudie loops. 


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 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, duochrome wrapper, saddle-stapled. Very Good Plus, light rubbing & spine stress, ink price notation.
