Partial, late run of Boone's groundbreaking magazine, the first in the US devoted to nudism and published by his National Nudist Council. These issues published in the wake of his successful 1958 Supreme Court ruling allowing the distribution of the journal through the U.S. Mail. Unlike many other "nudism" magazines, who used the name puriently or as cover for various forms of smut and erotica, Boone's SUNSHINE & HEALTH was genuinely devoted to the movement and included numerous informative articles and ads geared to the community. With numerous photographs, almost all taken at Boone's nudist resort Sunshine Park. Issues included: April 1958; Feb., March, July, Aug., Sept., Oct. 1959; Nov., April 1960; March 1962; and Annual No. 3.
