Jules Verne Encyclopedia:
"In July of 1885, George W. Hanna copyrighted Mathias Sandorf, with no copies deposited." (at Library of Congress)
First English Editon:



 

Jules Verne Encyclopedia:
"In October 1886, Sampson Low published the first British edition of Mathias Sandorf, in a rather thick post 8vo. volume, priced at 10s6d. Pictured on the front cover is Mathias Sandorf clinging to chains off the stern of a steamship. The spine shows Stephen Bathory and Mathias Sandorf standing on a narrow stonework as they escape down a rope. This edition, as early as it is, appeared in a dustjacket with the same design as the front cover and spine. It might be reasonably assumed that other titles from this period forward also had dust jackets.
Sampson Low used the Hanna translation, published by Munro in America. Although this edition of Mathias Sandorf is segmented in two parts, the first part has two sections. There are fifteen chapters in the first hald of part one, eleven chapters in the second half fof part one, and twenty-seven chapters in part two. The same number of chapters appear n the Munro edition, which is arranged in three distinct parts."

Jules Verne Encyclopedia:
"In September of 1885, George Munro copyrighted the Seaside Library pocket edition of Mathias Sandorf , and two deposit copies were received by the Library of Congress on October 20, 1885. On September 25, 1885, George Munro copyrighted part one of Mathias Sandorf, and two deposit copies were received by the Library of Congress on November 7, 1885. On September 25, 1885, George Munro copyrighted part two of Mathias Sandorf, and two deposit copies were received by the Library of Congress on October 20, 1885."

"On October 19, 1885, George Munro copyrighted the Seaside Library pocket edition of part two of Mathias Sandorf, and two deposit copies were received by the Library of Congress on November 7, 1885. On November 20, 1885, George Munro copyrighted the Seaside Library pocket edition of part three of Mathias Sandorf, and two deposit copies were received by the Library of Congress on December 2, 1885.

Munro's Seaside Library editions cited the copyright of G. W. Hanna in addition to Munro's own copyright, indicating that Hanna's translation was used for publication."

This translation opens:
"Trieste, the capital of Illyria, consists of two towns of widely dissimilar aspect. One of them -- Theresienstadt -- is modern and well-to-do, and squarely built along the shore of the bay from which the land it occupies has been reclaimed; the other is old, and poor, and irregular, straggling from the Corso up the slopes of the Karst, whose summit is crowned by the picturesque citadel."
