The Mistress Michelle Peters Magazine Collection
- The Mistress Michelle Peters Magazine CollectionMistress Michelle on the cover of Fetish Phonebook , Vol. 2, No. 4, 1995In 1964 I started collecting various fetish publications, in 1975 I became a professional Mistress and my collection had grown to a few hundred magazines and newspapers. Throughout the years I would move to a different location and in process would throw away my magazine collection. In 1987 I moved from Detroit , Mi to Hesperia, Ca and again throwing away the majority of my collection, keeping just a few of the magazines and newspapers. Every once and a while someone would ask me if I wanted any of those old magazines? And I would respond by taking them off their hands. By 2006 my collection had grown to around 1200 to 1500 magazines and newspapers. Last February 2007 I acquired 500 plus paperbacks, 3000 to 5000 magazines and over 15000 B&D Newspapers. I now have one of the largest collections of B&D Magazines and Newspapers. I have acquired photos, stories of almost any person that was associated with B&D in the last 40 or 50 years. You cant believe the amount of space these publications take up! Rick Storer from the Leather Archives Museum, in Chicago, came here and interviewed me and said he was impressed with this collection. I'm 63 and have decided to give this collection to the LA&M upon my death, so all of you can enjoy it. Mistress MichelleDuring the 1920's 1930's, " London Life" was published in England and distributed worldwide , while not specifically a B&D Fetish magazine , it was the first internationally distributed magazine to have a regular sizeable B&D and fetish section. The artist publisher John Coutts (aka John Willie) was a regular contributor. In 1946 John Willie first published " Bizarre", considered to be the first dedicated B&D Fetish magazine. By the early 1950's ( 1951-55 ) Irving Klaw was publishing his Nutrix Booklets and by 1954/55 Lenny Burtman was publishing Exotica (1954 ) and Exotique (1955 ) magazine. With the advent of Lenny Burtman's publishing enterprises ( against a backdrop of obscenity cases ) the B&D / Fetish magazine market grew many fold and the demand seemed to grow year by year. Star Publishing of Brooklyn, N.Y. ( headed by Teddy ( Roth ) Rothstein controlled all fetish / B&D magazines east of the Mississippi , while Mag Corp controlled all printing west of the Mississippi. During the 1960's there were few fetish magazines , by the 1970's the number had tripled and continued to expand into the 1980's. By the late 1990's , early 2000`s the magazines were almost a thing of the past , being predominantly replaced by the Internet. All the Magazines featured in this group are from Mistress Michelle`s collection and ARE FOR SALE. Condition varies from Good to Excellent, for further details contact : MMPGroupsites@ verizon.net
