THE NATURAL METHOD READERS: A FOURTH READER by Hannah T. McManus and John H. Haaren
This antique school book is in poor condition, but very special because of the lovely illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright.
Published by Charles Scribner's Sons. No publishing date. Copyright 1917. Appears to be the FIRST EDITION! It is full of tales and poems of patriotism, medieval times, fairies, history, etc. The selections are from classic authors such as George MacDonald, Longfellow, Hawthorne, Wordsworth, Hans Christian Andersen, Tennyson, Lewis Carroll, R. L. Stevenson, Mary Mapes Dodge, George Eliot, Shakespeare, etc.
Flaws: Loose and wobbly binding, heavy wear to cover, marks on pages, etc. All pages appear to be present.
