Rare Lloyd Douglas Find

image

I’m no book collector. I’m more a reader who appreciates literature from a bygone age. Lloyd Douglas’s Green Light is such a book. It’s been out-of-print. Although many of his books have been made into movies and this one included, the novel is relatively less known. I found this first edition at a garage sale for $5. The lady was either not aware of its value or she’s just not interested in monetary gain. The book, a 1934 first edition, has this note on the inside jacket disclaiming it was produced in full compliance of wartime regulations. It’s still in decent condition, wrapped in a plastic-kleer transparent jacket. Spine is intact despite yellowed pages.
