More Friends Old and New
(Scott, Foresman, and Co., 1963)
"I have two books of the same title from the same publisher: a Cathedral Edition of 1964 and a standard edition of 1965. This standard edition of 1963 helps to confirm how different the Cathedral Edition is. In fact, the ...
Everyday Classics Third Reader
"Here is the third printing I have of this book. I have placed the printings of the others in 1922 and 1925. Other than the date of printing that they bear, I believe that they are identical. The particular pride of ...
Reading with Expression: Third Reader
(American Book Company, 1911)
"This copy is almost identical with another book in the collection. The only difference I notice is on the verso of the title-page, where this copy substitutes "W.P. 1" for "W.P. 2" there. As I wrote there, this is a ...
The Fourth Reader for the Use of Schools
(John B. Piet, 1880)
Includes four fables: The Dog and the Manger, Hercules and the Carter, GA, and DS. Remarkably clear engravings. A good example of the use of Aesop in earlier American education.

Child Classics: The Second Reader
This reader, in the same series with another that I have listed under 1909, offers seven fables. Three take only a few lines and are presented almost as page-fillers: GGE (14), DS (43), and FG (58). Two are presented ...
The Elson Readers: Book Two
(Scott, Foresman and Company, 1920)
There is a fable section (38-50) containing five stories, each illustrated with at least one very nice one-colored illustration. In GA, the grasshopper opens discussion during the summer, asking why the ant works so hard. ...
The Children's Own Readers: Book Two
Here is the second reader in a series from which I already have the third reader. This book is in good condition. It has one fable: TH (19), with an illustration by Blance Fisher Laite. After a long time the hare waked ...
Studies in Reading: Third Grade
(University Publishing Company, 1918)
Twelve fables are sprinkled along the way, each with a fine blue, orange, and white illustration and questions for discussion. The illustrations are in especially good condition. DM (21) is illustrated by a dog standing ...
