Below: IN THE TRANSVAAL OF 1877 appeared in Harper's Round Table, April 20, 1897

Below: some of HRH's novels were serialized in THE GRAPHIC, which was published in two different editions--the regular edition, and the more expensive and higher-quality De Luxe Edition.

Below: I found a list of payments authors received for allowing their works to be serialized

If the list can be trusted, HRH received £1500 for JOAN HASTE, but only £200 for AYESHA, and $800 for MORNING STAR

AYESHA was also serialized in THE WINDSOR MAGAZINE, and it would be interesting to know what payment HRH received

Below: 5 receipts issued by The Perry Mason Company to HRH acknowledging what was paid to HRH for articles he wrote

  • The Real King Solomon's Mines

  • The Zulus

  • Thebes of the Hundred Gates

  • The Small Farmer in England

  • Lost on the Veldt

Also, below, an invitation to HRH to attend an event

4 of the 5 receipts are shown in individual images further below
