"There are two best features about this score: its cleanliness, and its ability not to turn the page on its own. This score is one of the cleanest I have ever seen - I have yet to notice one stray mark on my copy. The printing is very nice and dark, and ample space is left for annotations. As to the editing, it was done by the French and the orchestral arrangement was done by Ravel himself, so one can hardly go wrong. There are only two things I fault this book for: one, its small print, which can be justified because the orchestral part was sometimes reduced not to two staves, but three, and if the print was much bigger the book would not hold the page as well. The other potential problem is the lack of bar numbers, which is compensated by markings "1" through "53", which divide the piece into sections rarely longer than 12 to 14 bars."
