Abstract
This pamphlet seems to be a later printing of one I have listed already, with the same bibliographical information, under 1908. The cover here is simpler. Without any color, it shows a running child. Now all of the seventy-eight books in the School Classic Series are listed on the inside of the front cover, while the inside of the back cover is given to another series, Dialogues. Above all, the price of a pamphlet has gone up from 5 cents to 7 cents! I will include my comments from the earlier appearance. 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 still 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. This copy is in better condition than the earlier copy.
