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 ...
Story-Friends: Third Book
(World Book Company, 1936)
This reader includes three versified Aesop's fables versified by John Martin and apparently illustrated by Mabel Betsy Hill: CP (93), The Cat and the Mice (214), TH (241). The book is in surprisingly good condition. It ...
Oral and Written English: Primary Book: Part Two.
(Ginn and Company, 1921)
This classroom book, equivalent to and paginated the same as the second part of a book acquired earlier from the same year and publisher, uses three fables to teach lessons from storytelling to paragraph organization: ...
Reading with Expression: Third Reader
(American Book Company, 1911)
A pleasant reader in very good condition, with varied, lively, distinct illustrations. Baldwin's work for American Book Company is well represented in my collection: I have School Reading by Grades for the first through ...
Erstes Lesebuch für Evangelisch-Lutherische Schulen.
(Concordia Publishing House, 1910)
Seven fables interspersed among prayers, poems, and various pious pieces, all in Gothic script. Four of them get illustrations. The best of these is that of OF on 49. Lively little frogs!
A First Reader
(W.W. Shannon Superintendent State Printing,, 1909)
This book 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 on that edition. This book adds ...
Children's Classics in Dramatic Form: Book Two
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1909)
A novel (if direct and naive) approach to children's stories, including ten fables, with standard illustrations.
(Lyons & Carnahan, 1943)
The last section of this very early school reader is Story Time on 155. It turns out to contain two fables in three stories. I enjoy school art in this style, perhaps because I grew up with it!
(American Book Co., 1957)
Six fables, each ending a section of this early grade-school reader. See 40, 76, 108, 144, 179, and 216. Simple colored pictures in a mass-produced book. TH on 216 presents a good graphic illustration of what dawdling ...
Tales to Read
The most interesting feature in this early kids' reader is the use of rebus in its fables. Besides FG, AL, and BC, there is The Wolf and the Cat, wherein the two discover together that the wolf has outraged every ...
