Price: $750.00


Toledo, OH: Leister Game Co., (1959). First Edition. 8vos. 8 illustrated dust jackets. Unclipped. Mild handling wear. Overall clean, each near fine. Lacking original packaging. (Item ID: 15263)

A complete set of the eight legendary novelty dust jackets produced by Reginald Leister's novelty game company in 1959. Each provocative, a few wildly offensive. All tinged with an intelligent, tounge-in-cheek, and often dark sense of humor. Titles included: 101 THINGS TO MAKE WITH HUMAN SKIN; FORGERY SELF TAUGHT; SURGERY...A PROFITABLE HOBBY; SO YOU WANT TO BE A SAFECRACKER; LEARN COUNTERFITTING AT HOME; HOW TO START A RIOT; HEAD SHRINKING FOR THE BEGINNER; and most provocatively LYNCHING AS A COMMUNITY PROJECT. What is little known, however, is that designer Roger Crawford was himself African American (see JET, April 27th, 1961, p. 49), lending these jackets a doubly subversive edge. Complete sets are uncommon.
