Nevertheless, Mrs. Gorham is notable for having written three books in "Burt's Series of One Syllable Books", Gulliver's Travels (1896) and Black Beauty (1905) being her other two, with some eleven other books in this "series of Classics, selected especially for young people's reading, and told in simple language for youngest readers.
