This book is called "The Pathway to Reading" Fourth Reader by Bessie Blackstone Coleman, Willis Uhl, James Fleming Hosic. Published by Silver Burdette and Company I see only a name on the front page of this book and obviously written in fountain pen ink. This book is in amazingly good shape with a copyright date of 1926. The dark blue hardbound book cover shows only slight discoloration in one place. The wear is on the very top and bottom edges of the binding. The inside front cover has a loose page glued at the top that explains the makeup of the book ie aim, motivation, word studies. I see only three pages with a wrinkle indentation. All the pages are clean and neat.
