The Ontario Readers: Second Book
(T. Eaten Co.T. Eaton Co., 1909)
I had earlier catalogued a 1971 facsimile of the 1923 printing of this book. Now I find the (original) edition--and perhaps even printing--of 1909. This reader includes The Arab and His Camel (1); The Bat, the Birds, and ...
A First Reader
