Does anyone know of a book or CD/DVD booklet or vinyl LP insert that has a good, accurate English translation, preferably side-by-side with Italian, of the libretto of Bellini's Norma?

Barnes and Noble seems to offer an inexpensive libretto, Italian/English:

Availability may be iffy. Quality unknown.

That publication, I believe, is a reproduction of the very terrible, inaccurate one here:

Thanks. I ordered the book anyway since it was so cheap. I really don't know for sure that it is a reprint of the version at archive.org. Somewhere along the line, I formed that impression.

Hope it's a winner. I occasionally take a flyer on an unknown, if the price is right.

It was a shot in the dark, for me, too.
