A Greek Reader, Selected Chiefly from Jacobs' Greek Reader, Adapted to Bullions' Greek Grammar.
The very first readings offered (91-96) are twenty-two of Aesop's fables, including a last one in verse. The notes for these texts are on 218-221. See the parallel edition for Latin, listed under 1854. The publisher has changed from Pratt, Woodford, Farmer, and Brace to Pratt, Oakley & Company, and the address has changed too. As in the Latin book, there is a first section on idioms and then introductory exercises. Then comes a bookful of passages, with the fables leading the way. After some of the contorting of fables that I have seen lately, it is wonderful to see fables done in two or three lines. This book has weathered some storms in its long life. Its covers are separating. This book was perhaps first published in 1853, the date on the back of the title-page. I found the two Bullion books at almost opposite ends of the USA.
