Drittes Lesebuch für Evangelisch-Lutherische Schulen.
(Concordia Publishing House, 1910)
A remarkable little book. Lots of fables in its first part and a reading (86) on the meaning of fables. No illustrations for these. A nice verse rendition of MM (31). Further sections explore nature, history, geography, ...
Fifty Famous Fables
(Johnson Publishing Company, 1910)
See my comments on the 1910 version of this little book that I have from Sherry Carroll. This version has a gray cover that gives no initials for Johnson but does add VA. to Richmond. The title-page, otherwise the same, ...
Fables for the Nursery, Original and Select
(Munroe and Francis, 1836)
This is a pleasant little (4½ x 5¾) book of original animal stories about twelve pages in length. The first six of its 224 pages consist of blanks and the title-page. The rest is entirely stories, with large print and ...
The Heath Readers: First Reader
(D. C. Heath & co. ;, 1910)

The Canadian Readers: Book II
(T. Nelson & Sons/W.J. Gage & Co., 1926)
Authorized for Use in the Public Schools of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. This second-grade reader includes a surprising number of fables, perhaps more surprising because only one of them -- the ...
Reading with Expression: First Reader
(American Book Company, 1911)
Here is a second copy of this book in poor condition. Again I find an American Book Company reader in unusually good condition and with unusually good color printing. There are two fables here: The Wolf and the Kid ...
The De La Salle Series: Second Reader
(Brothers of the Christian Schools La Salle institute,St. Joseph's Normal College, 1913)
It is good to get something from the Jesuits' long-time competitors! This standard Catholic second reader contains four fables, two of them with surprise softening twists at the end. In FS (82) a while after the joke had ...
Das zweite Milwaukeer Lesebuch : nebst praktischen Sprach- und Uebersetzungs-uebungen
(Georg Brumder, 1880)
