A lurid and prototypically noir paperback cover painting by the prolific American artist and illustrator Victor Olson, for the 1965 Midwood Book title Down And Out. Written by Les Masters - a well proportioned young housewife gets herself in financial hot water unbeknownst to her husband, she has to sell her valor to this snarky loan shark to cover the debt, and then of course all bets are off. Sounds like a real page turner... from the no holds barred desirable low rent end of sleazy paperbacks that Milwood Books of New York City specialized in. Never before on the market in a fine state of conservation, a complete copy of the book is included in the sale.
