In 1890 Gilbert collected together several lyrics from the operas he had
written with Sullivan and published them under the title "Songs of a
Savoyard", illustrating them with line drawings. In 1897 The Bab
Ballads, with which are included Songs of a Savoyard — a collection
of all the Bab Ballads which had previously been published in book form,
along with lyrics from Songs of a Savoyard, plus some post-1890 lyrics — was
issued with mainly new drawings.
These drawings may be used to illustrate programmes or other publicity
material without permission. Click on the song title to download a high resolution

Thanks to Diana Burleigh for
identifying the drawings.
