Frontispiece "The Old House" by Tom Scott (1854–1927) as T. Scott [identity inferred from WorldCat library use of canonical name]

Content not evidently related to that of Prince Prigio and Prince Ricardo, the first two of three works issued in the 1895 omnibus My Own Fairy Book.

As for those two so-called Chronicles of Pantouflia, there were two British 1st editions of The Gold of Fairnilee apparently, both published by J. W. Arrowsmith: one ordinary and one large-paper edition. There are numerous anomalies in library records, such as sizes 30cm and 26cm apparently for the large-paper ed. HathiTrust Digital Library evidently provides full view of one copy of the ordinary edition, mis-catalogued as one of the large-paper edition.
