Reading with Expression: Third Reader
(American Book Company, 1911)
"This copy is almost identical with another book in the collection. The only difference I notice is on the verso of the title-page, where this copy substitutes "W.P. 1" for "W.P. 2" there. As I wrote there, this is a ...
Everyday Classics Third Reader
"Here is the third printing I have of this book. I have placed the printings of the others in 1922 and 1925. Other than the date of printing that they bear, I believe that they are identical. The particular pride of ...
More Friends Old and New
(Scott, Foresman, and Co., 1963)

Junior Great Books, Series 4, Volume 1
(The Great Books Foundation, 1975)
Eighteen fables on 75-90 in Jacobs' version, not acknowledged. Then four fables from Thurber on 91-8. I find Thurber a surprising match for Aesop for these young readers. Using Jacobs as source means that a fable like ...
Fact and Story Readers: Book Three
(American Book Company, 1930)
An excellent example of reader material and art. This copy is in very good condition: is it a later printing? The Hen and the Fox (37) crazily starts by saying that animals including the hen and the fox were at peace! ...
Tommy Traveler in the World of Black History.
(Black Butterfly Children's Books, 1991)
An exasperated store-owner had run through all his fable books and then remembered this book, which he did not have in stock but ordered for me. Tommy dreams after reading books--about Phoebe Fraunces, Emmet Till, Aesop ...
The Progressive Road to Reading: Book Two.
(Silver, Burdett and Company, 1909)
There are three fables here, starting with The Camel and the Jackal (5). The Little Jackals and the Lion (42) is The Hare and the Lion from Kalila and Dimna, but it uses a pool. The Cock and the Fox (70) is the Chanticleer ...
The Progressive Road to Reading: Book One.
(Silver Burdett and Company, 1909)
For fables, one finds here only TMCM on 109, with five lovely (unattributed) black-and-white etchings. See A First Reader in 1909/10 for a slight refashioning of this book.
