6 “Playboy” Magazines – Jan.-March and June-Aug. 1956.

Lot 743. 6 “Playboy” Magazines – Jan.-March and June-Aug. 1956. Among the authors in these issues are Jules Archer, Charles Beaumont, Ray Bradbury, Erskine Caldwell, John Collier, Stanley Cooperman, Herbert Gold, Shepherd Mead, Blake Rutherford, Mack Reynolds, Evelyn Waugh and Earl Wilson. Most of the Playmates have two pages of photos in addition to the fold-out. Here are some details for each issue: Jan. – Holiday issue with Lynn Turner as the Playmate, no photos beyond the two-page fold-out; also, nine pages of the first two dozen Playmates, including Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe. Vg+ to ex. Feb. – Playmate Marguerite Empey, model, dancer and actress in her second “Playboy” appearance. Her photos were taken by film director Russ Meyer. Also, an Earl Wilson article on Jayne Mansfield with four photos, and article on Stan Kenton and the 1956 boxing preview. Vg with ex-m to nm pages. March – Playmate Marian Stafford, who did some TV commercials for Revlon and RCA. Her centerfold was “Playboy’s” first triple-page fold-out. She is on the magazine’s cover. Vg+ to ex. June – Playmate Gloria Walker; five-page pictorial of Sally Todd titled “Champagne Flight to VEGAS.” She became “Playmate of the Month” for Feb. 1957. Ex+. July – Playmate Alice Denham, a model, author and former adjunct professor of English at the City University of New York. Her short story “The Deal” appears in this issue, which also has a three-page photo spread on Maria English, who appeared in some B movies, and five pages on the Newport Jazz Festival. Vg+ to ex. Aug. – Playmate Jonnie Nicely, a model who became a mechanic at a Rockwell B-1 bomber plant in California. She apparently was supposed to be “Miss October” 1955, but creative conflicts are said to have pushed her centerfold to this issue. The Oct. 1955 issue presented four pictorial pages of her and Jean Moorehead, the issue’s centerfold. This issue also has a four-page tip-in with Shel Silverstein illustrations. Ex+ cover. Pages are ex-m or better. Winning Bid $50.
