The Notary and Other Lawyers
in Gilbert and Sullivan

A.J.Burgess

The Notary and Other Lawyers in Gilbert and Sullivan has accounts of the roles played by the lawyers appearing in the Savoyard operas and examines their characters. The sources of Gilbert's libretti are dealt with and in many instances these are reproduced in Appendix II. The lawyers and the persons with whom they are involved come to life in the illustrations, many in colour, ranging from pictures of scenes, singers and theatres to reproductions of first-night programmes and of many of Gilbert's own illustrations.
