Misc. Notes Original images: 300dpi, grayscale jpg2000 files approx. 2270 by 3285 pixels. Editing: re-sampled to 600dpi, converted to black and white tif files, de-skewed, and set uniform margins. While HMB sometimes overestimates British publication dates, a Novello ad in the October 1 1883 Musical Times (p.575) lists the work as "in the press" (referring possibly just to the orchestral parts or to both those and the full score- unclear), so publication was at least between October 1883 and April 1884, more or less.
