A series of light-hearted fantasy tales of Prince Boohoo (the only son of King Starzungartus and Queen Kizzimforwotteveredid) and three short tales of Little Smuts, a young girl. The author (according to his preface) invented the stories in the 1860s.
This is a very nice copy. There is light wear to the leather at the spine ends and some minor surface abrasions. The contents are securely bound and the pages are clean bar some light and very occasional spotting and some finger marking to the margins.
