The Bolenius Readers: Fourth Reader
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1919)
This fourth reader seems to follow after Happy Days (second) and Door to Bookland (third), both from 1930. Five fables, the first three from Aesop and the last two from Bidpai: The Lark and Her Young (28); The Cat, ...
Open Court Basic Readers: A Magic World.
(Open Court Publishing Company, 1976)
A good example of a modern reader, with carefully chosen selections and attractive layout. Two fables are labelled as from Aesop: The Lion in the Den (3) and BW (13). The Deer is presented as an old fable ...
Junior Great Books, Series 4, Volume 1
(The Great Books Foundation, 1975)
Eighteen fables on 75-90 in Jacobs' version, not acknowledged. Then four fables from Thurber on 91-8. I find Thurber a surprising match for Aesop for these young readers. Using Jacobs as source means that a fable like ...
The Progressive Road to Reading: Book Two.
(Silver, Burdett and Company, 1909)
There are three fables here, starting with The Camel and the Jackal (5). The Little Jackals and the Lion (42) is The Hare and the Lion from Kalila and Dimna, but it uses a pool. The Cock and the Fox (70) is the Chanticleer ...
The Progressive Road to Reading: Book One.
(Silver Burdett and Company, 1909)
For fables, one finds here only TMCM on 109, with five lovely (unattributed) black-and-white etchings. See A First Reader in 1909/10 for a slight refashioning of this book.
(A. Flanagan Company, 1923)
Six fables in a reader in good condition. The versions are simple and the illustrations two-colored. The best illustration is for TMCM (48). Others include LM (40), WS (50), and DS (52). OF (41) has several different ...
Story Hour Readers: Book Three
(American Book Company, 1914)
A standard reader in excellent condition. It includes five fables and indifferent two-color illustrations by various artists. By a wonderful coincidence I happen to have a later version of this reader after fourteen years ...
The Young and Field Literary Readers: Book Four.
(Ginn and Company, 1914)
A standard reader including four fables. The end papers are written on, and some early and late pages have severe smudging. The Brahman, the Tiger, and the Six Judges (15) is well told as a drama; it has one illustration. ...
Das zweite Milwaukeer Lesebuch : nebst praktischen Sprach- und Uebersetzungs-uebungen
(Georg Brumder, 1880)
Here is an unlikely find. This is a revised edition of a reader for students in the third through fifth years of school in Milwaukee. In the introduction, the editors tell us that they did the work on this book for free! ...
Reading-Literature: Second Reader
(Row Peterson & Company,, 1912)
A good reader in excellent condition, including Richardson's three illustrations of Aesop: WS (11), GGE (15), and The Jay and the Peacock (19, a very humorous illustration). Among the twelve Aesopic fables: CP (Where ...
