The 1919 edition was my operatic “bible”. I still have its tattered remains plus some other editions 
from 1915 thru the Simon and Schuster version.

For background on The Ring, I like "Kingdom on the Rhine” by Nancy Benvenga.
“Back in the last century” I took Spanish in college. One of our texts was a scholastic
reduction of “Fausto”, I believe the author was Campo. It is the story of Faust thru the
eyes and ears of a gaucho who happened to be in the upper reaches of the Colon for
its first performance there. Don’t know if there is an English version of it.
