(price-clipped) [minimal shelfwear, slight fading to cloth at spine ends; jacket a little faded along spine and left edge of front panel, small tears and minor paper loss at spine ends, some wear along top edge, light soiling and a few edge-tears to rear panel]. (cartoon illustrations) A 25th-anniversary selection of single-panel cartoons from True, "The Man's Magazine," many apparently drawn with the cartoonists' pens dipped in testosterone: lots of sports, cars, hunting, fishing, and, of course, buxom (and usually scantily-clad) babes. If you want a peek into the sexist white male mindset of the American mid-century, you couldn't do much better than this volume, which wears it on its sleeve and pokes it in your eye. In his brief introduction, the editor points out that "you do not have to be a cartoon editor to appreciate that these cartoons are drawn for the amusement of men. Some of them infuriate women, at least some women. Other, possibly more secure women[!], laugh as heartily as the men." (So there ya go, a fair warning to insecure women: stay away!) Some of the more recognizable cartoonists whose work is included are Charles Addams, Virgil Partch ("VIP"), Phil Interlandi, Syd Hoff, Eldon Dedini, Bob Barnes, Pete Wyma, Robert Day, Gahan Wilson, even Hank ("Dennis the Menace") Ketcham. The hardcover edition is much more uncommon than the (abridged) mass market paperback issue of this title.
