Misc. Notes From a book? of 22 selections and other related products (some are less "selected" than others - no.21 is the full (maybe vocal?) score of the work) - as listed on the title page (some are probably joined together, at least the pagination of this Library of Congress scan- title page from book, followed by pp.100-101- suggests this may be the case. LoC has several other excerpts from the same opera, in particular from the same set of excerpts, digitized.)
