Lionel Douglas. The collected works

Lionel Douglas: Selected excerpts of “Collected Works” published in 1980 by Emanation Press. This is a book of my fathers work published a year after his death by friends.

Not sure if they have it in stock still but you can try to get a copy from the publisher here if your interested. Going to try to arrange to have it available from here as well.
