There exists only one English translation, by W.H.G. Kingston (1879). I checked the text against Lippincott's US edition, but it is verbatim of UK edition of the same year by Samson Low. The short story was NOT included in later editions of the novel mentioned above. Captain Nemo 03:30, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
