Pictorial wraps with black titles. Light, general wear with typical light toning on pages.The book is square with an uncreased and uncracked spine. Solid copy. The book purports to be an expose' of a Hollywood glamor queen of the 1940's, but is mainly the sort of "high-class" sleaze that Holloway House produced in the 1960's before narrowing in on the urban black market.
