Presenting: Bosomy Beauties (vintage adult pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


New York: Burmel Publishing, 1950s. N2. Vintage adult digest magazine featuring voluptuous women, posing seminude & emphasizing natural buxom assets, w/ heels, hose, garters, notably house favorite nudist Suzanne "Sue" Snow. Ties to other "Bosomy Beauties" digests published by Marr Publishers, Phoebe Publishers. Burmel also issued several "Presenting" titles, including Bettie Page, Vicki Palmer, Judy O'Day, Bubbles Darlene, Zorita, etc. 


Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, it seems. 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. Very Good, light rubbing, price notation, moderate stain to rear.
