In the Fall of 1988, Volume 1 Number 1 of LIBIDO was published. This first issue sells as a collectible on the Libido web site for $100.00! I do not have that issue, but my collection begins with Volume 1, Number 2, the Winter 1988-89 issue. The first issues were 5.5" X 8.5" paperback journals selling for $5.00 each. By Spring of 1991, the price per issue had increased to $6.00, and the very next issue was priced at $7.00.
Beginning with the Winter 1993-94 issue (Volume 6 Number 1) , the size of the journal increased to 6.5" X 9.25", although the price remained $7.00 until Spring of 1995 when it increased to $8.00. In Summer of 1999 (the issues shown above) the price went up to $9.00 per issue and remained there until the final "Farewell" issue.
FALL 2000 Issue
My collection includes 46 issues, beginning with the Volume 1, Number 2 issue and ending with the Volume 12, Number 3 Warewell Issue shown above. Some of the journals show mild shelf wear, but most are in near-perfect condition. Back issues are sold on Libido.com for as much as $100.00 per issue and some of the issues are sold out.
I am offering a near-complete collection of this erotic journal, but must recognize they have sensual, historical, and collectible value. Still, I am offering all 46 issues for $300.00 (in the U.S. only), to be shipped via UPS Ground freight. Shipping cost will be determined, based on weight (approximately 16 lbs) and distance, and the actual cost will then be added to the total. E-mail for an estimate of total cost and order instructions.
My price (not including shipping costs) comes out to about $6.50 per journal. That is a bargin, but in packing the box, I discovered there were gaps that could be nicely filled by adding a "Lady Finger" vibrator and one of the popular "Pocket Rockets." One of the free gifts might come in handy while reading these erotic journals!
