This is the complete orchestral and vocal score of Richard Wagner's magnificent work, an opera which combines profound emotion and great moments of comedy with wonderful, accessible music. A reproduction of a now out-of-copyright turn-of-the-century score from a German publisher, it has English translations of the introduction and cast list -- but English translations nowhere else. This is likely to be too bulky for singers, for whom standard piano-vocal scores will be more useful, but it's an invaluable tool for the student or enthusiast.

I won't get into the nitty-gritty stuff of comedy/tragedy but in comparison to Die Walkure, it's much lighter and quite funny especially when one character (Beckmesser) happens to steal a song written by someone else and on delivering, messes it all up and makes a fool of himself. The themes continue to come back at every oppurtunity and the whole thing links together as one.
Of course Wagner likes his big, fat scores - this one comes in just over 800 pages and the other Dover scores, it opens flat (or reasonably) and doesn't damage the spine, i.e. no creases.
Text is all in German apart from a translation of the contents, characters and orchestration so unless you've mastered the German language, get your hands on a german or music dictionary. See through is minimal. $30 is a very good bargain for such a big score.
This edition has nice, readable engraving--though the rather small dimensions of the page make everything somewhat crowded. Also the sheer thickness of the score makes the book somewhat unwieldy, but considering the price of other editions, this is a steal at Dover's price!
As for the work itself, if you set aside all the nit-picking about new vs. old musical styles (which is implicit in the plot, don't get me wrong) and just listen to the music, I don't see how you can fail to enjoy this opera. It is very long, true--but that's Wagner. The plot is one of the merriest of Wagner's whole output, and the music is joyful in like measure. For sheer beauty, my favorite moment in the opera is the quintet in Act III, scene IV, but Walther's prize song ("Morgenlicht Leuchtend"), "Am stillen Herd" and the Prelude to Act I are all close runners up. In addition, being able to study Wagner's masterful orchestration--or look at the sheer number of individual vocal lines in the street fight at the end of Act II--is reason enough to buy this edition.
