book-aesthete:

Asimov’s Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan  Asimov, Isaac and William Schwenck Gilbert.  New York, Doubleday, 1988.  Text by William Schwenck Gilbert and Notes by Isaac Asimov. Red cloth, dust jacket. First Edition. A surprisingly scarce Asimov title.

From Amazon.com:  “Writer Martin Gardner once told Isaac Asimov that if he really wanted to have fun, he should find a book he liked very much and annotate it. “Asimov’s Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan” is one of the results of that suggestion. This enormous volume contains the words to all the G&S operas, plus extensive notes explaining allusions and words that might be unfamiliar to today’s listener. Asimov assumes minimal knowledge on the part of the reader, so this book is useful and entertaining not only for the veteran G&S aficionado but also for the neophyte. “
