About this Item

Small 8vo, pp. 96. "Authorized by the Advisory Board for use in Public Schools in Manitoba". Very much like its American counterpart, the "Dick and Jane" readers, but published much earlier (c. 1910). The central characters are Frank, Nellie, Dora and Tom, and a horse named Darby. The vocabulary is as simplistic, viz. "I see a ball. I see a tree. I see my cap. Do you see my cap?" with images of a ball, cap and tree. Lesson 75 shows a photo of boys playing baseball (with accompanying story to read): 83 lessons in all. Bound in original illustrated brown cloth, now showing some wear and soiling. Front endpaper absent amd hinge weak. Some soiling to contents but no childish scribblings. A fair, to good, copy of the scarcest of all Manitoba readers. Bookseller Inventory # 042144

Shipping Terms:

Standard shipping costs are based on one book, and appropriate packaging, weighing together no more than 2.2 lb, or 1 kg. If your book order exceeds the standard weight, or is oversized, extra shipping charges will be required, and can be quoted in advance, upon request. Canadian customers: we can ship either by CanPar (faster - but CanPar does not deliver to apartments or postal box numbers), or by Canada Post. GST (5% of the total cost of your order) MUST be collected from Canadian orders. American customers: our courier takes U.S.-bound packages to the nearest U. S. Post Office to be mailed every second Wednesday. This service reduces shipping costs and does not result in any appreciable delay. However, if you are in a hurry to receive your order, please let us know, and we can quote options for expedited delivery.
