Don Quixote

 From Bridgetown Nova Scotia I paid only a few dollars for this older edition of Don Quixote which the title page lists as being from 1941. Not my oldest book by far, but a neat older and illustrated edition in really good conditiion.
Interesting if someone looks for their own name in a search engine and finds this book they used to own from over 70 years ago. The book came with a book-plate sticker naming "Sarah Lemnon" (I think).

I paid $7.50 for this edition but saw the exact same one in a downtown Ottawa bookstore for $40. So either the Nova Scotia dealer didn't know what his book was worth or the Ottawa dealer is WAAAY overpriced. I tend to think the latter as the downtown dealer seems known for slightly overpriced inventory.
