PREFACE.
In compiling the following History from the Archives of Pantouflia, the Editor has in­curred several obligations to the Learned. The Return of Benson (chapter xii.) is the fruit of the research of the late Mr. Allen Quatermain, while the final wish of Prince Prigio was suggested by the invention or erudition of a Lady.
A study of the Firedrake in South Africa— where he is called the Nanaboulele, a diffi­cult word—has been published in French (translated from the Basuto language) by M. Paul Sebillot, in the Revue des Tradi-tione Populaires. For the Remora, the Editor is indebted to the Voyage a la Lune of M. Cyrano de Bergerac.
