The story did not reappear until after the author's death, (June 1965, 'The Argosy'), nearly seven decades after the first publication. This issue also contains the short story 'A Princess In Green and Tan' by Arthur Preston, featuring six illustrations from a young Arthur Rackham, drawn very much in the popular Sidney Paget (Sherlock Holmes) style, familiar to readers of the rival 'Strand Magazine', as well as two stories by Richard Marsh.
