McGuffey Readers 1879
The original (Blue-Ship) McGuffey Readers in Paperback. There are many so called, McGuffey Readers,
available in print of which are not the same books. These do not have workbooks included, or unnecessary guide books,
they have not been re-written or are condensed, edited with others opinions or contain some of McGuffey's writings.
We carry all Seven volumes. Our McGuffey Readers match both the A2 (Accelerated-Achievement) and Robinson Curriculums.
All versions of the McGuffey Readers in print today are Christian Versions. Most look for and recognize these McGuffey's by the Blue
Ship on the cover as shown. These editions are the latest, which do not include the run-on sentences and spelling errors as found in
the earlier versions. These are complete and unabridged. View our McGuffey Menu for a more thorough description and sample stories from each reader. Our McGuffey Differences page is also available for comparison. These are not to be mistaken for the Mott Media or Dorothy and Raymore Moore versions.
