Notes

Louis Wain's first annual to solely feature stories for children, a copy of which was sent and gratefully received by "the Queen... and Princess Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein, Princess Christian's daughter". Despite this royal success with P. S. King, Wain only published two annuals with them. An uncommon book, with just one listing on OCLC and two auction listings.
