Elson Primary School Reader

I found two beat up grade school readers at a garage sale a few months back and just started scanning some of the pages. These two little books are falling apart...they look torn, worn, colored in...practically loved to death. But, there's still many charming illustrations and sweet stories and poetry. I thought I'd share a few of the least scarred pages. The name of this first book is Elson Elementary School Reader Book Two by William H. Elson and illustrated by H.O. Kennedy and A. Meissner. It has a cppyright date of 1912 so I feel it's fine to share these with you. Enjoy!

Very cute. I adore old readers, I'll be posting a digital project I did with a scan of one of mine today at some point. Enjoy your fabulous finds!
