Butterscotia

Butterscotia or A Cheap Trip to Fairyland by Sir Edward Abbott Parry.

Judge Parry’s sequel to Katawampus.

Illustrated by by Archie MacGregor.

Published: London: David Nutt, 1896.

There’s also a fold-out map on onion-skin paper (12 x 14 inches).

Edward Abbott Parry (1863-1943) was an English judge and writer. This book was written for Parry’s children, and is considered by some as an Alice parody, or at least it’s widely thought that it was influenced by the Alice books. The dragon is certainly very Jabberwock-y in the illustration:

There’s an article about Parry here.

Various editions are available on Amazon: Butterscotia
