Several periodicals serialized Beatrice, such as The Yorkshire Post, Ipswitch Journal, Cardiff Times, Liverpool Daily Post, and Nottingham Guardian. On 12 May 1890, Longmans, Green, & Co., London, published Haggard's novel in a print run of 10,000 copies. Longman's Fourth Edition of Beatrice featured a frontispiece by Maurice Greiffenhagen. P. F. Collier & Son, New York, published an edition that adopts Greiffenhagen's frontispiece.
In 1890 Harper & Brothers, New York, published an edition of Beatrice that included twelve illustrations. The illustrator's identity is not recorded in the front material of this edition, however because the signature of Lancelot Speed appears on several of these illustrations (see "'He's nothing...'" and "Alas!...") I have attributed all twelve to Speed. Moreover, the Harper & Brothers illustrations were likely commissioned to accompany an earlier serialized printing of Haggard's novel, rather than this specific edition, owing to their obvious cropping (see the bottom-left corner of "'No! never...").
