All of the above issues are complete, & in very good condition, with only age-related wear to covers & yellowing of contents, along with tears along staples on a few copies. Everything & everyone in their contemporary popular, political & countercultural mileu are irreverently parodied with brilliance & ribaldry in these original artifacts. The advertisements for LP records, stereo equipment, leisure suit-era clothing, swinging bachelor accouterments, etc. are now as hysterical with age as the lampooning content.
Very good condition. [Item #1601]
