HRH's Aztec novel! Inspired by his trip to Mexico in 1892
First appeared as a serialized novel, published by THE GRAPHIC from July to November 1893, and this serialization contains 6 illustrations by Seymour Lucas and 16 by J. R. Weguelin.
McKay, Scott and Whatmore claim that Longmans, Green and Company published in London its edition on November 13, 1893, and that 10,000 copies were printed. Longmans supplied 24 new illustrations, on plates, by Maurice Greiffenhagen, opting to use none of the illustrations from the serialization. Ads at the end of the book are dated January 1889 or August 1889.
McKay, Scott and Whatmore all claim that the American first edition as not published until 1894, but I own a copy with 1893 on its title-page, and have also handled a copy with 1894 on its title-page, but without any reference whatsoever to being a reprint. Ergo, I believe that the Bibliographers are incorrect, and that Longmans also published the novel in New York in 1893, with the same illustrations as found in its British edition.
See the VisualHaggard.org page dedicated to the illustrations found in various editions.
I do not own any of the books pictured, unless noted.
