Hello Doitsu,

As far as I understood, only the titles are shortened (by omitting "The story of ...")

Maybe someone who can access this edition through their library can double-check this for you.
There are early publications in:
- Phil May's Illustrated Winter Annual (winter 1892 [UK])
- Success (3 august 1895)

Some of Phil May's are available, but not the 1892 edition.


And yes, the version in the book is shortened. How could I know? I got the german translation of the long version and I really don't believe, that all this additional text is added by the Translator.

Maybe I find it, one day ....

vg, mm
