KIRKUS REVIEW

Reissue of the delightful 1932 edition, with preface by Deems Taylor (appreciation, biographical commentary, and some personal reminiscences of the place Gilbert and his famous collaborator played in Taylor's background). Warren Chappell designed the jacket, but the text throughout is illustrated with ""Bab"" sketches- Gilbert's own classic accompaniment to classic text. Fourteen of the operas are here, three other Gilbert plays, all the Bab ballads.... A beautiful piece of book-making.
