Full title: The Savoy Operas

Author: W S Gilbert: Sir William Russell Flint (illustrator)

Publication: G Bell & Sons Ltd, London, 1909 first edition

Very good copy of this first edition, which was followed by Iolanthe and other Operas in 1910. The four operas are The Pirates of Penzance, Patience, Princess Ida and The Yeomen of the Guard. Each opera has 8 colour plates illustrations with printed tissue guards. Foreword by W S Gilbert. Red cloth binding with attractive Art Nouveau decoration in gilt, top edge gilt. No dust jacket, as issued. Externally light wear and bumping to corners, internally occasional light foxing but overall very clean, plates all good, rear hinge cracking slightly. Attractive bookplate of Captain Sir Mansfield Cumming, no other marks or inscriptions. Russell Flint's illustrations were immensely popular and many later editions followed, but this volume is particularly well produced.
