Ginn and Company  
Literature of America
Publisher: Boston 1957.
Good with no dust jacket; Moderate wear to boards, especially at corners, which are frayed a bit. For some reason I can't discern, there is a rectangle made of transparent tape on the bottom of the front paste-down, partly over the bottom of the textbook assignment label. There is a tear at the bottom of p. 433/434. I did not see any obvious underlining or markings in a quick scan through the book, but there are a couple of red stains in the Table of Contents. There is a school stamp on the back paste-down. Ginn and Company Hardcover Textbook; tall 8vo 9" - 10" t; 711 pages; A high school course. Selections are religiously pretty neutral. This is especially evident in the colonial section where writers such as William Bradford and Jonathan Edwards are conspicuous by their absence. Contains "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder as the full-length drama selection.

Horn, Gunnar  
Cavalcade of American Writing
Publisher: Boston 1964.
Very Good with no dust jacket; Previous owner taped her own library classification number to the spine, and there is light edge and corner wear. Allyn & Bacon Hardcover Textbook; tall 8vo 9" - 10" t; 786 pages; An excellent anthology of American literature for high school students. Most selections are classic rather than contemporary, and date from the colonial period to the fifties. The book is arranged both by types and by chronology. Footnotes explain obscure references. Carefully researched biographies give insight into the writers of the chosen selections. The book contains the complete text of The Red Badge of Courage. Some authors included are Irving, Poe, Hawthorne, Harte, Twain, O.Henry, London, Cather, Steinbeck, Thurber, Benjamin Franklin, Paine, Thoreau, Emerson, Bryant, Shittier, Longfellow, Holmes, Whitman, Dickenson, Lanier, E.A. Robinson, R. Frost, and many more. Conspicuously missing are Christian authors in the colonial period, but the book doesn't have nonfiction selections except for biography, essays, famous American speeches, and America's most famous patriotic and folk songs. It has short stories, poetry, and drama. Illustrations are authentic and rare photographs and the work of more than twenty artists. Each selection is followed by discussion questions and research ideas.

McDougal Littell  
Reading Literature Orange Level
Publisher: New York 1985.
Very Good with no dust jacket; Glossary boards are rubbed. There are some small black spots (or they may be part of the cover illustration -- hard to tell) around the target illustration on front cover. They proabably are part of the illustration, the more I think of it, since they don't appear anywhere else on the boards and they look like the holes an arrow that missed the mark might make. Pages are very clean . There is a number written in marker on the top edge. McDougal, Littell Hardcover. Textbook; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 670 pages; For grade 9. Content includes myths and legends, a section on how writers write, classic, modern, and science fiction short stories, poetry, diaries (Davy Crockett, Anne Frank) autobiographies, biographies, recollections, humorous sketches, articles, sayings and proverbs, and drama.

At the back is a handbook for reading and writing that includes literary terms, summaries of vocabulary and comprehension skills, guidelines for the writing process and for study and research, a summary of critical thinking skills, a glossary and some biographies of authors.; ISBN: 0866092331
