Vester Vade Mecum: A Collection of Short Fiction compiles a variety of important imaginative texts. This book collects many enduring works of English literature, featuring authors such as Washington Irving, Mary Shelley, Herman Melville, Oscar Wilde, Pauline Hopkins, Stephen Leacock, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, and others. Plus, the collection includes select fables by Aesop and fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, because such works are so foundational to the body of English literature that developed since. This is a collection to delight educators and pupils alike.
