PENTHOUSE Magazine Issue #1 (First American Issue)

PENTHOUSE Magazine Issue #1 (First American Issue)

New York: Penthouse International, Ltd., September, 1969. First Edition, First Printing. Original wraps. 8 1/2 X 11 Inches. 98 PP. Near Fine. Item #6665

Super hi-grade copy of the First American Issue. The magazine, which was created to be a bit edgier than it's Playboy counterpart, was originally published in the UK. After four years of production, the founder and editor, Bob Guccione, began publication in America with this issue. Historically, the writing in Penthouse has been more in-depth and investigative that that of Playboy. For example, this first issue features the JFK assassination suspect Clay Shaw as the interview guest. Pictorical spread of Miss Evelyn Treacher, the first Penthouse Pet of the Month.

All pages intact. Hints of wear at lower edge and crease to bottom corner of cover. Overall, a splendid example.

Price: $350.00
