Overview

The seven tales which are found in this work are not Untermeyer's own. Additionally, Untermeyer points out that this volume is not intended for the "devotees or scholars who know their Gilbert and Sullivan forward and backward, and vice versa."

Untermeyer has drawn on Gilbert's unmatched lyrics and has made almost continuous use of his prose.
