Customer Question
I have my Grandfather’s...

I have my Grandfather’s small leather bound book entitled “ as a Man thinketh “ by ***** *****. From Thomas Crowell Company New York. It is in original box.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The book is very old. My Grandfather died in 1985 in his eighties. I believe he received the book when he was in high school or upon graduatin

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I can send a picture of the book if needed
