We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE NAKED ANGEL (Signed By Cover Artist ROBERT MAGUIRE) by Webb, Jack (Maguire, Robert).

Description:

Webb, Jack. THE NAKED ANGEL. NY: Signet (1149), 1954. Early Paperback Printing. Famous strip tease queen is threatened by a thug who deals in both drugs and, yes, used cars. Combo of police and parish priest tackle professional killers. And then there's that mysterious "naked blonde" who appears nightly onstage. Nice 1950s noir paperback graced by the sensational cover art of Robert Maguire, arguably the greatest illustrator of Good Girl Art of his or any generation. Paperbacks such as this, prolific as they are, can only rarely be found signed by their authors. But the real unsung rarity is to find a copy signed by the illustrator; in this case one of legend. Boldly SIGNED "Bob Maguire" on the title page. Maguire (1921-2005) made only a very few public appearances and signed but a small number of his books for fans. Often they were copies in so-so condition presented for his signature without much consideration of the condition of the paperback. This is a stunning, bright NEAR FINE example of THE NAKED ANGEL, virtually faultless and as nice as they come. Bookseller Inventory #
