Early lesbian-themed novel by Kenneth Johnson, writing as Justin Kent, for Gilbert Fox's Vixen Press; later reprinted in various sleaze-paperback incarnations.
Very good - in a very good - jacket.
Johnson, described in a 1960 House hearing on Circulation of Obscene and Pornographic Material as "a man who came from the South with considerable writing ability and settled in Harlem," was induced to submit a confidential report to Congress regarding his knowledge of publishers and distributors of erotic materials, and his statements were later used in various obscenity trials.
New York: The Vixen Press, 1953. Hardcover. 8vo. Yellow cloth in black and yellow pictorial jacket. Scuffing and light dampstaining to jacket and boards at lower right corner; interior pages not affected. Moderate edgewear. Corners bumped. Very good minus overall.
