Harriette Taylor Treadwell and Margaret Free’s Primer, first published in 1910, is intended for early readers, and for those who teach them.


It has a relatively small vocabulary of just over 200 words, and presents nine classic stories: The Little Red Hen, The Gingerbread Boy, The Old Woman and the Pig, The Boy and the Goat, The Pancake, Chicken Little, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Little Tuppens, and Little Spider’s First Web.

From the back cover:

Yma lies huny i’n tor’-ma owth assaya desky Kernowek, hag ow whelas fordhow rag ûsya an tavas i’ga bêwnans pùb dëdh oll. Onen a’n fordhow-na yw an ûsadow coth a bejadow kenyver jorna.

There are a great many people now seeking to learn Cornish, and all are looking for ways to use it in their daily lives. One is through the age-old practice of daily prayer. This book has been compiled with two aims—to help you to learn Cornish, and to bring you closer to God in the process. Morning and Evening Prayer in this book follow a traditional format, and ancient prayers from the Celtic Church have been included whenever possible. A fixed psalm for Morning and Evening Prayer is used each day to make things simple, because that’s how prayer should be. Collects have been included for use during the Church year, as well as a list of Celtic saints’ days.
