HathiTrust Digital Library provides full view of two copies with original cover. Only one, linked here, contains sharp images of the text; a superior copy except some colour images of the plates.

Printed on one side only, except half-title leaf. The verso is blank, after the half-title (Macmillan logo) and frontispiece leaves. -- Cover title: no quotation marks -- leaf [i] only is printed on both sides, half-title (single q-marks) and logo -- [iii], <a href="">title page</a>, single q-marks -- iv-v, "Illustrations", lists 15 (frontispiece and 14 plates included in the pagination) -- vi, "The Return of the Children" (poem) -- narrative, p7-80, spans 74 leaves (14 plates, 60 text); p80 closes "Printed by Bemrose & Sons Ltd., Derby and London."

-- [iv]-verso: Kipling copyrights and publication date paste-down cover illustration matches that of page 13

[v-vi], "List of Illustrations", lists 15 (frontispiece and 14 plates included in the pagination)

"Printed on one side of leaf only." (except half-title leaf, with publisher logo) "Printed on one side of leaf only." (except title leaf, with copyrights and publication date)

leaves 7-79 are identical to the 1905 UK edition, apparently The first six leaves differ. Indeed, the boxed list "Books By Rudyard Kipling" as second leaf replaces the poem that precedes the story in the UK ed., "The Return of the Children". HDL copies of the US ed. show guard sheets for all of the plates

The book title is fashioned with single quotation marks throughout: front cover, half-title and title pages, running header.

The UK and US evidently differ only in the front cover, first six leaves, and last leaf (printer statement). HDL digital copies of the US ed. alone contain images of guard sheets for all the plates.

"They" (August 1904 Scribner's Magazine; 1905 chap) is a ghost story.
"Thy Servant a Dog": Told by Boots (coll of linked stories 1930 chap; exp vt "Thy Servant a Dog" and Other Dog Stories 1933) contains three animal fantasies of almost perverse – but quite astonishingly eloquent – intensity.
The Pleasure Cruise (11 November 1933 Morning Post; 1933 chap), a short fantasy play based on Lucian's Conversations in the Underworld, predicts the advent of World War Two if Germany is not resisted.
Later tales include [list of 6]
"Wireless" (August 1902 Scribner's Magazine; in Traffics and Discoveries, coll 1904), in which amateur-radio experiments make Communication across Time possible, linking a chemist's-shop assistant and John Keats via a kind of Telepathy;
"The Army of a Dream" (15-18 June 1904 Morning Post; in Traffics and Discoveries, coll 1904), a Utopian vision of Near-Future militarized England in which – prefiguring the society of Robert A Heinlein's Starship Troopers (October-November 1959 F&SF as "Starship Soldier"; 1959) – voting rights and other social privileges must be earned by volunteer service; --q
"The House Surgeon" (September-October 1909 Harper's Monthly), in Actions and Reactions (coll 1909), which explains a ghost in terms of Psi Powers;
"In the Same Boat" (December 1911 Harper's Monthly), in A Diversity of Creatures (coll 1917), suggests a prenatal cause for bouts of irrational dread, not unlike the "engrams" of Scientology;
"The Eye of Allah" (September 1926 Strand), in Debits and Credits, implies the Alternate History that is almost generated when a microscope falls into the hands of medieval English churchmen, revealing a world of "demon" animalculae and bacteria;
and "Unprofessional" (October 1930 Saturday Review of Literature), assembled in Limits and Renewals (coll 1932), suggests that planetary "tides" may affect human tissue.

draft material for consultation with Rtrace

Illustrators J. Matthew and G. Whittam, and editor M. Erwin are now in the database only as contributors to 4 Macdonald editions of H. Rider Haggard novels (Macdonald Illustrated Edition, new publication series when the queue is cleared). Their 4 publication records identify no source except Tuck--each as your Secondary Verification, with many other sources tagged N/A.

I infer that Tuck sometimes, if not routinely, identifies contributors by first initial where the book uses a full name. Indeed, Library of Congress identifies illustrator Jack Matthew by full name (ie, assigns him LCCN: no2014103502), citing the title page of this book, although it doesn't catalogue the book.

From library records and (Illustrators [65], [66]) I think I know the illustrators to be Jack Matthew and Geoffrey Whittam, credited by full name in those books.

We do have publication records for this series, no source stated except your SV from Tuck, with full name illustrators, e.g. Eric Brighteyes P323042. Does Tuck use full names there? Or have you expanded the names without comment?

In general I would like to know about Tuck as a source whether credits by first initial, and page counts without a roman numeral component, should be reported in a publication note. --or should be corrected without comment when another seconddary source is found, as for page counts from Amazon.

British Library records for these three volumes, Macdonald Illustrated Edition, credit the illustrator by full name--and does so in the "Title" field, which implies the title page as its source.

1949 Eric Brighteyes --BL 001561605 ; VH novel 20 (w cover 1963 4th)
1951 The People of the Mist --BL 001561729 ; VH novel 26 (w cover 1951 1st)
1953 Queen Sheba's Ring --BL 001561738 ; VH novel 10 (w cover 1958 2nd)
1953 The World's Desire --BL 001561796 ; VH novel 11 (w cover 1953 1st)

"M. Erwin" must be Malcolm Elwin, general editor of Macdonald Illustrated Classics, a publication series from 1948 (BL 001063931) --same year as the Macdonald Illustrated Edition of H. Rider Haggard novels, and same year as the She volume in that series.

Introduction and Notes

recommend as Contents entry from secondary source, perhaps upon someday examination of the book (or images thereof, or secondary report of its layout) to be replaced by multiple essays with page numbers, or by Introduction and Annotations


recommend as Contents entry without page number, comparable to the typical single INTERIORART entry, to represent notes that are not segregated in a separate span of pages (and may not be a Table of Contents entry)

Eric Brighteyes

VH: "EB’s publication corresponds with the US International Copyright Act of 1891. This act extended American copyright protection in a limited capacity to foreign authors of select nations including Great Britain. For this reason, EB is the last Haggard novel with rampant pirated American copies."
