Fourteen issues (all published) of this magazine which ceased when Ginzburg began serving his sentance for obscenity (related to his magazine EROS), a case that went to the Supreme Court. Large square (11 1/4 x 10 3/4 in.) illustrated wraps. A mixture of artistic erotica, including photography and contemporary art; anti-war, racial and counter cultural articles; prose and poetry. Includes some iconic work from that extraordinary period (even the eponymous font created for the magazine is well-known): Bert Stern serigraphs of Marilyn Monroe; Picasso's erotic gravures (the entirity of no.8); John Lennon's erotic lithographs; work by Mailer, Lenore Kandel, Rexroth, Arthur Miller, Genet, Peter Schjeldahl, Roald Dahl, Auden ("A Day For A Lay") among others. Rubbed with some edgewear, vols. 6, 11, 14 with small loss to edges, some paper browning, else easily very good. A difficult set to put together.
