A Greek Reader for Schools adapted from Aesop, Theophrastus, Lucian, Herodotus, Thucydides, Zenophon, and Plato
(Clarendon Press, 1917)
Who knows but that I may have used this reader myself in my early years of learning Greek! Its first section consists of four pages including eight fables. The notes for these are on 85-86. The fables include: Cock and ...
Foolish and Wise
LM is on 163-4, with two illustrations. There are also questions and discussion suggestions on 37 in the early manual section.
The Pathway to Reading: Fifth Reader
(Silver Burdett and Co.,, 1926)
A well used reader. The fifth grade seems to have been a relatively late period for reading fables in the classroom. There are three fables here in a section labelled Fable and Fancy, introduced by a pair of ...

Junior Great Books, Series 4, Volume 1

The Winston Companion Readers: Primer.
(John C. Winston, 1922)
A longer version of My Animal Story Book (1923). Among the six added stories is BC (91) with one good Richardson illustration. The version of the story has only two mice. Here, as in the later edition, are The Fox and ...

Standard Catholic Readers by Grades: Third Year.

A Catholic reader! Two fables are especially well told ( The Lark and Her Young and FWT). There are three others, one (SW) with an evocative drawing.
Miller-Kinkead English Lessons.
(Lyons & Carnahan, 1914)
Aesop (not usually labeled as such) is the backbone of this first reader. There are many fables, with good pictures, one or two even in rhyme. I can see why senior citizens say that Aesop was a big part of their early ...
