Item Description
5.25x7-5/8" w/128 pages. Published by Diversey Publishing Corporation in 1948. Inside this lurid package was a reprint of the book House of Fury. The first in a series of "Diversey Romance Novel" digest paperbacks that included titles like "Broadway Virgin" and "One Night With Nancy," this cover image featuring Canadian ice skating star Marty Collins adjusting her garter w/a cigarette dangling from her lips was used three years later on the cover to Realistic Comics "Reform School Girl!" which was mentioned as an example in Fredric Wertham's controversial "Seduction Of The Innocent" book. Book has moderate handling wear, w/vertical crease on front cover and pinch creases to spine. Cover is VG. Pages are lightly aged but remain clean and VF overall. One of the all time classics of digest paperbacks, this is a highly sought after book. From the Robert M. Overstreet Collection and comes with COA.
