[creasing and light wear to edges of covers due to slight overlap of text block; spine slightly turned, light external soiling]. (B&W photographs, cartoons, ads) Digest-sized publication, issued monthly for the amusement and titillation of the British male. Contains a mixture of light feature articles (on topics such as "Canoes Can Go Anywhere" and "Why I Hate Father's Day"), photographs of buxom but wholesome beauties (no nudity, in fact not even decent cheesecake, at least by American standards), and lots of cartoons (some captioned as stand-alone gags, others illustrating an article or story, but pretty much all featuring buxom beauties in mildly risque situations). The front cover of this issue touts a "What-To-Wear Guide For Men," supposedly a free 40-page booklet -- but not only is there no such thing, but there are also no signs of any such thing having been removed. (There's plenty of fashion advice, though.) The most notable article -- heralded by the caricature portrait of her on the front cover -- is a profile of Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida.
