Synopsis: The phrase 'pin-up' dates only from the last war, when it was applied to the girls the G.I.s pinned up to help them forget the war. But the idea of the pin-up is far older than that. Man has always delighted in pictures of the female form. However, his ideal of beauty has altered with changing tastes and relaxing moral standards, so that the pin-up in her own way is a reflection of the mood of the age which produces her. This selection of pin-ups covers the eighty years from 1860 to 1940. 104 pages fully illustrated in two colours, and including 8 pages illustrated in four colours

Contents sound and clean, not showing any pen-marks. Not from a library so no such stamps or labels. Thoroughly illustrated in colour. Thus a tidy book in presentable condition.
