See the book. Let’s take a look. 😀
GOD’S MAN, BY LYND WARD
This is one of the most unusual books in my collection. It is a book without words. The story is told via woodblock prints. The prints are rather easy to “read” as they tell a story of an artist who sells his soul to the devil for a magic paintbrush. It does lead to fame and fortune along with ultimate tragedy and loss.
It joins other tales stemming from the Biblical caution Mark 8:36 and 37:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? A valuable lesson.
However my book is not so valuable money wise. You can google them for anything from about four to a hundred and fifty dollars. Mine is not for sale for anything someone would give me. Neither is my soul as it has already been purchased.
My book has notation on fly leaf “To Keating Donahoe from Mrs Geo K. Williams, May, 28, 1931.” Then a second note, “from Keating Donahoe to Harrietta Daniels, June, 1931.” I was happy to get it for fifteen dollars at a library used book sale.
