1974 J. C. LEYENDECKER,  gay illustrator, by Michael Schau, first edition, ex library copy, 207 pp, 12 1/4" x 9  1/4", full of wonderful Leyendecker works including many of the hot bodied males he loved to draw, about 1/2 in color and 1/2 in black and white, fine condition, it has a mylar cover protecting the dust jacket so the dust jacket is in excellent condition, the mylar cover has some wear though, the mylar has been taped to the inside of the covers of the book and the library has been marked out on the inside cover and on the top and bottom edges of the book, it has "discarded" next to where the library name used to be, the spine has a library code, but I think that will come off easily    #CI25546    $145.00


.

1954 LUX SOAP AD WITH JUDY GARLAND,  bl & w,  advertising "A Star Is Born" as well as Lux soap, "10" x 14", excellent condition, only a  small tear in the left margin, you can actually see it the photo, I must have somehow caused a temporary separation in the 2 parts while I was scanning it; in reality the tear is not at all apparent    #garlux1    $5.00

1935 SPUDS CIGARETTE AD  WITH DEEP SEA DIVER AND "GAY MERMAID QUEEN", limerick contest, 
"A grizzled old diver named Lee
When lifted up out of the sea
Said, "A Gay Mermaid Queen smoking Spuds I have seen ..." 
this has lots of potential to be very entertaining for guests when hung on a wall - lots of double entendre to play with, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE MERMAID LOOKS LIKE A MERMAN,  10 1/4" X 13 1/2", fine condition with some light wear on the top and right edges which can easily be framed or cropped out, there is some smudging of the ink in the printing process or some soiling in a few places - specifically through a little bit of the text of the first 2 paragraphs of the left column - it looks much worse in the scan than it does in reality, it really does not detract much    #SP26117    $35.00
