I had presumed that this pamphlet of 32 pages containing some thirteen fables was a printing of some sort from the two volumes Reiter did for the Instructor Literature Series. These were Eleven Fables from Aesop (1906) and More Fables from Aesop (1905). Apparently these are simply other stories. They are done for the first grade and are listed as #1 among the seventy-eight books in the School Classic Series. There is a misprint (It for I) in the first line of 7. In The Lion, the Bear and the Fox, the lion and bear set out together to hunt their dinner. The argument in SW (25) is presented according to the poorer version. The black-and-white part-page illustrations are simple. Though intact, this little booklet is very fragile.
