    "Kipling's third attempt to write a long story was made during his residence in the United States, and the background for this novel centres around the deep-sea fishing industry of Gloucester, Mass. The story first appeared in serial form in McClure's Magazine, November, 1806, to May, 1897, with twenty-five illustrations by I.W. Taber, and in Pearson's Magazine, December, 1896, to April, 1897, with forty-one illustrations by I.W. Taber and Fred T. Jane. A copyright edition, made up in part from the sheets of the serial and in part from a separate printing, was prepared by the S.S. McClure Co., London and New York. The text differs slightly from the regular edition" (Stewart, p. 149).
