The Winston Readers: Third Reader Manual.
(John C. Winston, 1919)
A pamphlet for use with the reader published in the same year. Unfortunately, I do not yet have the latter! Plenty of exercises, questions, and word-lists. The fable material is on 10-11, 13, 16, 19-20. The only ...
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 ...
Erstes Lesebuch für Evangelisch-Lutherische Schulen.

Fifty Famous Fables
(Johnson Publishing Company, 1910)

The American Pictorial Primer
(Original: NY: George F. Cooledge and Brother. Facsimile: San Marino, CA: Huntington Library and Art Gallery, 1845)

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 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 ...
The Beacon Supplementary Readers: Book Three: The Wise Little Goat
(Ginn and Cmpany Ltd.Ginn and Company Ltd., 1932)
There are twelve stories here in a pamphlet in good condition. Four are listed as from Aesop: The Wise Little Goat (7), A Silly Trick (26), The Race (47), and The Lion and the Fox (54). We might know the first three ...
School Reading by Grades: Third Year
