Description

Excerpt from American Classics: For Seventh and Eighth Grade Reading; With Biographical Sketches, Portraits and Suggestions for Study This book is a modified form of Masterpieces of American Literature. The changes consist of a few additions and of omissions enough to bring the book within the range of a reader for the upper grammar grades. Among the things omitted are a few master pieces of a local character which had been called for by the Boston Supervisors, for whom the Masterpieces of American Literature had been especially prepared as a grammar school text-book in reading. The additions include material from Southern authors acceptable to the Virginia State Board of Education, which has placed the book on its list of authorized readers.
