Think Before You Act by Mrs. Sherwood, Geo. S. Appleton, D. Appleton 1849.

Think Before You Act.

Children ask their grandfather for a true story to while away the six hours their mother must be gone. He leads them to think about truth in history as he tells them the story of the Welsh King Llewelyn and of Robinson Crusoe. This must have made an elegant little present for Mary Alice Caroline Krumbhaar from Aunt Helen. Copyright date is the year George Appleton, who had been publishing in Philadelphia, joined his brothers in their father's New York firm.  Please note: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD
