Word To The Wise

Bookmark, small illustration at the top, text reads:

This card is meant to keep your place in this book. Please use it.

The true book-lover does not turn down leaves, nor bend them and does not leave a book lying open on its face, nor break its back in opening it.

I love my books. "A word to the wise is sufficient." 

Found in "Nancy Drew Mystery Stories: The Hidden Staircase" by Carolyn Keene. Published by Grosset and Dunlap, 1930.

That's a wise word . . . but sixty years ago I loved my Nancy Drew books almost to death. They became bent and broken, but I read them over and over again anyway.

Absolutely love that bookmark - wish my local library would make bookmarks with those words (translated to Danish) as too many people are careless when borrowing books

Love your book and have bought it as a present to many friends
