And I might as well offer another companion to this trashy "girl".  

Seduction of the Innocent, first edition, first print, second state with dust jacket.

Book:  Book has a name on the front free endpaper, but is otherwise clean and unmarked.  Some bumping to head of spine and corners of boards.  All typical pages present including 16 pages of illustrations.  Bibliography is not present.*

Jacket: Jacket is solid with spine fading and some paper loss at the head and tail of the spine and at the top & bottom of the flaps.

*Second state means that this copy does not have the bibilography.  The book was originally published with a bibliography leaf (pp. 399-400).  When comic book publishers threatened to sue over their name being included in this list, the publisher of SOTI gave in and had the bibliograpy leaf removed from all subsequent copies of the book.  Dr. Wertham didn't even know this was happening until he started getting complaints from readers that their books had been mutilated.  I have included a tipped-in photocopy of the bibliography for your reference.

Yours for $245 $199 shipped in the US; shipping elsewhere at exact cost for fully insured shipping (if available).

The R colophon on the publication page indicates that this is a first edition, first print.

Imagine how good this book will look displayed with your newly-acquired copy of the Reform School Girl paperback!

Here's another bad girl.  So bad she's mowing somebody down with a machine gun, all while her dainty little robe is falling off.

March of Crime #1 Fox Giant, poor condtion, poorly "restored".

I posted this recently in the "show you awful restoration" thread I started.  The front cover belongs on this book, but the back cover came from the front of a Photoplay magazine of the day.  The covers are attached by a piece of brown tape along the spine.

This is an awesome collection of horrible crime books, chock full of GGA, bad girls, murder and depravity.  Contents include rebound copies of

Murder Incorporated #4

Murder Incorporated #2

Jo-Jo #12

Blue Beetle #53

$99 $79 shipped (below my cost) in the US; plus exact shipping outside the US.

And for the more budget conscious, here's another copy of Seduction of the Innocent.  This one has no dust jacket, but is otherwise in similiar condition to the one above.  

Seduction of the Innocent, first edition, first print, second state without dust jacket.

Book:  Book has a pencil price on the rear free end paper, and sombody tried to erase it, but is otherwise clean and unmarked.  Some bumping to head of spine and corners of boards.  All typical pages present including 16 pages of illustrations.  Bibliography is not present.*

*Second state means that this copy does not have the bibilography.  The book was originally published with a bibliography leaf (pp. 399-400).  When comic book publishers threatened to sue over their name being included in this list, the publisher of SOTI gave in and had the bibliograpy leaf removed from all subsequent copies of the book.  Dr. Wertham didn't even know this was happening until he started getting complaints from readers that their books had been mutilated.  I have included a tipped-in photocopy of the bibliography for your reference.

Yours for just $100 shipped in the US; shipping elsewhere at exact cost for fully insured shipping (if available).  The price is firm on this one.
