The Great Fables of All Nations
(Dial Press: Tudor Publishing Co., 1928)
This edition marks the second of five different books all using the same plates. It looks as though Tudor picked up sole rights to the plates just after the book was jointly published with Lincoln MacVeagh in 1928. See ...
Famous Rabbit Stories
(Perks Publishing, 1944)
Apparently Perks Publishing is the successor to American Crayon's Mary Perks series; the latter name appears on the back cover, but not on the title page. One of four bunny stories included is TH. The telling pays attention ...
The Animal Story Book
(Auxiliary Educational LeagueAuxilliary educational league, 1902)
Now there are dramatic changes in the fable section. Where there had been eleven Aesop's fables, four from LaFontaine, and one from Piers Plowman, there are now only ten Aesop's fables. WL, The Fox and the Goat, The Lion, ...
For the Children's Hour
(Milton Bradley Company, 1928)
The categories of an early story book like this tell a great deal. Here the sections are titled Stories of the Home Relationship, The Home, Nature Stories, Holiday Stories, and Fairy Tales and Fables. In this last section ...
Prose That Every Child Should Know
(Doubleday Page & Company,, 1908)
This strange book with wounded spine has many texts every child should know; I count about 218. It has several unusual features. The biggest of them is its early use of photography: on the cover, end papers, and ...

Childcraft: The How and Why Library.
(Field Enterprieses Educational Corp.Field Enterprises Educational Corp., 1973)
Compare the five fables (76-84) here with those in the parallel 1964 edition. They occupy exactly the same pages, but two of the five fables have changed. BW and AD have replaced TMCM and FS. The held-over fables use ...
(California Dept. of EducationCalifornia State Department of Education, 1961)
This third-grade reader includes, as stories to be turned into plays, DM (170) and FC (172). Each is simply illustrated in color. Story Wagon (1960) is in the same series, though my copy is not a California edition.
Childcraft in Fifteen Volumes.
(Field Enterprises Educational Corp., 1949)
One finds here the same eleven fables and the same illustrations as in the 1949 Childcraft edition. See my comments there. The covers and endpapers have changed. Compare also with the Childcraft editions of 1931/47. ...
Fairy Tales and Fables: A Collection of Stories and Rhymes that Children Love
(The Goldsmith Publishing Co., 1923)
This book is related to another in the collection. They share the same title and publisher. Pages 2-32 here replicate the pages in that booklet, which stops at that point. This book continues on with a second half ...
