Note
  • This copy is identical with the one described in Townley Searle's "Bibliography of Sir William Schwenck Gilbert" and he notes the following points: The covers have the following advertisements: P.2 "Pirates of Penzance, " p. 3 "Olivette, " p.4 "Martyr of Antioch" and "Trial by Jury." Pp. 2 and 40 of the text have the imprint "Henderson & Rait, Printers, " etc. Later editions have the imprint "Henderson, Rait and Spalding." As there was an immediate outcry against the song "Silvered is the raven hair" p. 26 (objection being taken to the words "There will be too much of me, " etc.) Hugh Conway was commissioned to write another number in its place. Slips announcing "In the Twilight of our Love" were inserted in the second edition, while later issues contained an inset with the words of the new song. Copies of the slip and of the leaflet containing the more respectable words are almost as rare as the first edition of the libretto. In the (privately) printed copy filed with the Lord Chamberlain, the Dramatis Personae appear in different order and "Archibald" Grosvenor is printed as "Algernon." The last pages from the entrance of the Colonel, Duke and Major are considered altered, and the last word of the opera, spoken by Jane, is "Duke, " whereupon they embrace, "Bunthorne is utterly miserable. Patience, of course, has paired with Grosvenor." Page 4 is blank (in later editions this page carried advertisements.)
