A Passionate Pilgrim first appeared in two installments in The Atlantic Monthly of 1871. James revised the text for inclusion in A Passionate Pilgrim and Other Tales, his first short story collection and his first published book. There it appears as the first of six stories (pages 7 to 124). A Passionate Pilgrim and Other Tales was published on 31 January 1875 under the imprint "Boston: James R. Osgood and Company", and sold for $2 each. The initial printing was of 1500 copies, but not all copies were bound immediately: about 400 copies that were bound in 1878 or later have the imprint of Houghton Osgood & Co. on their spine.
