1 No! No! A 1000 Times No! [Blook]
Self-Published N.D. Ephemera Very Good with no dust jacket; Boards are heavily worn at corners and spine extremities, with top half inch missing from head and foot of spine. Cartoon on front boards has two scrapes, with large wedge at lower right corner obliterating view of damsel in distress's feet. 
An interesting altered book that started out as a copy of Harold Joyce Noble's 1946 book "What it Takes to Rule Japan", but a crude cartoon of a lecherous man groping a young woman on a park bench is pasted to the front cover. The insides of the book have been hollowed out to create an interior space, inside of which a young woman's lacy knickers are shown with a padlocked chastity belt. No! No! A Thousand Times No! Was the title of a popular ditty in 1934and was later the title of a Betty Boop cartoon. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
