These illustrations appear in the proof sheets of Nephi Anderson’s 1919 novel Romance of a Missionary but not in the published version. Why Anderson decided to cut them (notice the Xs over the illustrations) is unknown. Elsewhere in the proofs are several photographs of European locations mentioned in the narrative, which appear in the final cut, but no other illustrations based on the characters in the novel. It could be that Anderson initially wanted more illustrations like these, but negotiations for them fell through or they cost too much. Or it could be that Anderson was dissatisfied with their quality, or felt that they contrasted too sharply with the photographs and compromised the uniformity of the novel’s look.
Your guess is as good as mine. Personally, I like them.
