A handy little paperbound booklet comprising thirty-seven fables done, apparently, in straightforward fashion. I tried comparing the book with my 1919/30 Graded Readings in Gregg Shorthand, but I could find only one common story (MM). When I checked to see if the text was the same, I discovered of course that Pitman and Gregg have different systems. Here is another treasure on the unusual side. This is the second of four Pitman-Godolphin pamphlets I have from various years. In this one, the London publisher is Fred. Pitman at 20 & 21 Paternos Row, E.C., and the Bath publisher is Isaac Pitman & Sons, Phonetic Institute. There is also a New York publisher: Fowler & Wells Co. The price is still sixpence, and there are still 48 pages.
