    Description

    First American Edition of Penthouse Magazine (1969). A well-established and successful men's magazine in England during the '60s, Penthouse decided to challenge Playboy's near-total control of the U.S. market by releasing an American edition in September of 1969. (The magazine had none of the hang-ups that Playboy did, as editor-publisher Bob Guccione proudly pointed out in his "Housecall" column.) Featured is a copy of the first American edition of Penthouse, which still enjoys great success today. The issue is in fine condition, with some water damage to the lower left corner that affects the spine and first and last few pages.
