A First Reader
(Superintendent State Printing, 1909)
Here is an extra copy of this book, which represents a very slight modification of The Progressive Road to Reading: Book One from 1909 from the same authors and publisher. The back of the title page notes the dependence ...
Children's Classics in Dramatic Form: Book Two
(Houghton Mifflin, 1909)
Here is an extra copy in poorer condition. It has H, not E, on the verso of the title-page. A novel (if direct and naive) approach to children's stories, including ten fables, with standard illustrations.
The Winston Readers: Second Reader
(John C. Winston, 1918)
Here is an extra copy in a plain brown wrapper. Good several-color illustrations, of which my favorite is TT (17). As often with Richardson's work, the color alignment is sometimes poor. Other fables included are: ...

The Laidlaw Readers: Book Two
(Laidlaw Brothers, 1924)
Here is a second copy of this book, in less good condition. A pleasing little reader with six fables and four good colored illustrations: The Fox and the Crane (24); The Cat and the Birds (95, the best here); ...

Katha Manga for Standard V
(Simasahita Am. Di. Gunasena saha Samagama, 1948)
