London: Chappell / D'Oyly Carte Opera Co., n.d. (ca.1920)
New York: Edwin F. Kalmus, n.d.(after 1933).
*These parts do NOT contain the Act II recitative and song for Strephon, "My bill has now been read a second time" or "Fold your flapping wings". This number, while in the Schirmer vocal score (ed. Treharne edition, No.22), was cut soon after the premiere and is rarely performed due to the darker, angrier tone of the song which contrasts heavily with the lighter character of the rest of the operetta. Optional on-stage military band parts also not present.
Philadelphia: J. M. Stoddart, 1882.
