About this Item

4to. Stapled color pictorial wraps. Generally very good. One issue (April 1958) with covers cleanly detached from staples, one (Aug. 1959) with large scissored chip to front wrapper. Else sound and clean overall. Partial, late run of Boone's groundbreaking magazine, the first in the US devoted to nudism and published by his National Nudist Council. These issues published in the wake of his successful 1958 Supreme Court ruling allowing the distribution of the journal through the U.S. Mail. Unlike many other "nudism" magazines, who used the name puriently or as cover for various forms of smut and erotica, Boone's SUNSHINE & HEALTH was genuinely devoted to the movement and included numerous informative articles and ads geared to the community. With numerous photographs, almost all taken at Boone's nudist resort Sunshine Park. Issues included: April 1958; Feb., March, July, Aug., Sept., Oct. 1959; Nov., April 1960; March 1962; and Annual No. 3. Bookseller Inventory # 15233

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country. Please check my website for upcoming events. To date, I've issued five catalogues of rare books. Copies may be downloaded on my website ( Print copies may also be requested.
