Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------BOOK AND LYRICS OF THE BEST-KNOWN GILBERT SULLIVAN OPERAS----AND---THE BAB BALLADS by W.S. Gilbert, With Sir William Gilbert's Own Illustrations. H.M.S. Pinafore, Pirates of Penzance and Mikado----here are all the words to the operettas on which William Schenk Gilbert and Arthur Seymour Sullivan collaborated. A fixture in Anglo-American music theater and humor for well over a century, their wit retains its edge after all these years----all generously illustrated with Gilbert's accomplished pen-and-ink drawings. W. S. Gilbert, renowned author of the Savoy Operas, was also the creator of the Bab Ballads--"possibly the best comic verse--and surely the best illustrated--in the English language," according to James Ellis. Gilbert published these poems, together with his own, grotesque drawings signed "Bab," a childhood nickname, in Fun and other magazines in the late nineteenth century. This book includes these ballads with Gilbert's illustrations--- a tribute to the comic genius of a writer known as "the most original dramatist of his generation." You are bidding on the only stated Little Ives Edition from 1932. Other than a name stamped on the inside cover, both the cover and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find LITERARY / MUSIC COLLECTIBLE.
