Marijuana Girl

New York & Toronto: Stallion Books, [1954].

Second edition. 137, [1] pp. Bound in publisher's illustrated wraps. Very Good+ with slight roll and some foxing to spine, light wear, pages toned with age; much nicer shape than typically found. Uncommon in all editions.

A very collectible novel of cannabis in the Beat era with an iconic cover image of a provocatively-clad blonde lady holding a joint like an antenna at half mast and sitting on the wooden floor, stoned out of her gourd. Very risque for the time, it would be the target of a Congressional Sub-Committee. The pseudonymous author's identity as been the subject of much debate. It ranks at the top of this bookseller's all-time pantheon of laughably implausible pen names, next to X. Sharks de Spot and Raccoona Sheldon. Item #140945204

Price: $800.00
