An Original Vintage Esquire Date Book (measures 5 1/4" x 7"; 104 pages) (Learn More)

Esquire ("The Magazine for Men"), the magazine that was essentially a precursor of Playboy, which meant that it was filled with scholarly articles on a wide variety of subjects, but which also had pictures and artwork of sexy women (in the 1940s, they had art by Alberto Vargas, and Ernest Chiriacka in the 1950s). Once Playboy kind of took over that market, Esquire became more of a literary and scholarly magazine, with less emphasis on overt sex, but still aimed specifically at men (especially upscale ones).
Artist: Alberto Vargas
Important Added Info: What a really cool date book this is! Not only does it have wonderful Vargas art, but also has glamour photos of top stars. This is a special G.I. edition intended for soldiers stationed overseas near the end of World War II (we don't know how many of these "G.I. editions" they made, but they are really cool!). We are also auctioning another Esquire date book that is not a G.I. edition in a separate auction.

Condition: good to very good. It appears that the back cover is missing. Otherwise, it is in pretty good condition!
