dc.description.abstractWith vocabulary to each passage and grammatical notes. The book has three independent sections: Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced, all separately paginated, all having separate title-pages, and all dated 1916. The stories used as the basis for Russian composition are well chosen. They tend more to anecdotes and jokes, I believe, but fables are represented. For example, there is the story on 20 of Franklin (Benjamin?) in the company of three notorious liars. He promised to give a reward to the one who would tell the greatest lie. The first said I have never lied. The second said I could never lie. The third said These two gentlemen have spoken the truth. Among the intermediate level stories, one finds on 11 the Aesopic story of the hunter who asks the woodman if he knows the lion's footsteps. The woodman answers that he knows the lion's den and will show it to him. No, thank you, I am not searching for the lion himself, I only wish to know where his trail is. Still among the intermediates, there is the story of the quarrel of the members of the body (42). As an Aesopic fable, this story usually involves the members ganging up against the stomach. Here they do not wish to serve each other at all but learn their lesson in time.en_US
