The Best of National Lampoon #4

By: Beard, Henry, Michael O'Donoghue, Tony Hendra, Brian McConnachie and Sean Kelly (editors)

Publisher: New York, National Lampoon: 1973

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 016998

Condition: Very Good


"Vol. I, No 5 in a series of special editions published three times a year." Or, more accurately, a collection of material considered by the editors to be the best of National Lampoon's generally hilariously offensive, groundbreaking humour, published because the magazine was a gold mine, and even more money could be squeezed out of its readers if it published a regular series of 'Best of' issues. It certainly worked where I was concerned. Unpaginated, illustrated. A small handling crease to left portion of front cover, light general wear. Internally tight and clean. View more info
