Fair. 564 pages. Hardcover, no dustjacket. Reading copy. MUSIC. As W. S. Gilbert wrote in 1897, "I collected the most popular of the songs and ballads which I had written for the series of light operas with which my name is associated, and published them under the title of "Songs of a Savoyard." It recently occurred to me that these songs had so much in common with "The Bab Ballads" that it might be advisable to weld the two books into one." This is, briefly, the history of the present volume." Contains 350 illustrations by the author. (Key Words: William S. Gilbert, Songs, Ballads, Songs, Humor).
