LENNY BRUCE (1925-1966)

Stamp Help Out!
Soft cover, stapled wrappers, [52] pp. New York. [Self-Published], 1962.

First edition, first issue with four-letter words legible.

Fearing this booklet containing short stories like "The Pot Smokers," would harm his cause in his upcoming obscenity trial, Bruce himself called to have copies of this publication destroyed. A subsequent release had the four-letter verbiage struck out.
