Misc. Notes:

Low-quality scan. This is basically a version of the score's first printed edition (1905) but with the brass fanfares mentioned below (rehearsal 59:mm.4-11) already removed. It still contains numerous differences from the 1909 second edition (see below). For example, compare the cornet parts in the last 7 measures of the work in this edition with those in the second edition. The currently available Eulenburg No.1321 mini score appears to be identical to this first-edition file.

Misc. Notes:

Monochrome scans. Marie Rolf in the introduction to the Durand Critical Edition: "The 1909 edition of La Mer is the last printed version known to have been sanctioned by Debussy." The Critical Edition does, however, contain many important corrections (examples: the crescendo in 1st bassoon part on PDF page 4, bar 4 actually starts in bar 3, and what look like accents in the nearby trumpet phrases are actually decrescendos). Some recordings (Munch/BSO among others) retain the brass fanfares that Debussy removed in this revision (measures 4-11 of rehearsal 59 - PDF pages 125-126).
