Just did some basic typesetting. Reset staff size to 6.5 millimeters to be in accordance with historical rastral sizes for solo piano music (6.0 to 7.4 are the limits, with 6.5 to 7.0 being the norm). Did alot of "un-XML"-ing since there are usually a lot of artifacts it generates. Standard printing margins are 0.5, with sides allowable up 0.75 -- this I set to 0.625 to offset the ungainly width of the US Letter paper while still giving a decent amount of horizontal width to each system of music. Gave a small 0.05" increase in height in the grand staff (some more and some less depending on whitespace) to give more breathing room for articulations and dynamics -- always avoid collisions like the plague. Finally, I condensed your self-made ending to 1 measure by starting a volta-style repeat mid-measure -- this eliminated the problem of having to have either 1 system of 4 measures (too tight) versus 2 systems of 2 measures (too wide).

(Also, fyi, Yoshihiro Maeda was only in the credits for Explorers of Sky, so since Beach Cave was already composed for Time/Darkness 2 years prior to Sky, I removed his name from the composer credits)

Well it's either this or "Page Intentionally Blank for the Facilitation of Page Turns" ((In bold, centered vertically and horizontally, & 16-20pt absolute size)). Pick your poison.
Or even better, ignore centuries of printing practices for the sake of "consistency", demand the removal of the cover page, and thereby tacitly admit NSM's engraving standards are shit.

Ottava alta (i.e. 8va) over long distances in the lower staff in bass clef is unidiomatic for piano notation. You'd be much better served by using a treble clef, then switching back to bass clef at m. 9, beat 3:



Also, is the omission of the cello doubling in m. 10-17 intentional?

Definitely the Secret one - just deleted now. Had to delete puppet miyamoto and friends shortly after Dropbox stopped supporting Public folders, sadly.

For your given medium (i.e. academia), I recommend creating excerpts from scratch to fit your specific needs. You are welcome to use any of my materials, but just know it may not be right for the application. The problem is that anything made 2012 or earlier suffers from poor engraving quality (while mostly accurate to the source), while anything made 2014 and beyond are idiomatically interpreted and optimized for piano, making them unsuitable as scholarly reference material.

M. 17-18 -- The lower staff's accidentals don't match those chosen for the upper staff. Use Db and Ab, instead of C# and G# (reason: b2 chord root = neopolitan).

Also, just be aware that you have the ability to still use "8vb" instead of "8va" as the default symbol for ottava. Makemusic in their infinite wisdom decided that they'd try to correct a century's worth of copyist shorthands by burying the 8vb symbol in a list of sub-menus hoping to phase out the etymologically inaccurate expression "8vb". Here's where it is:

I'll concede on the fonts and text block layouts (esp. considering that Century Schoolbook is not a standard stock Windows font, unless you have MS Office installed). Thanks for the compliments, and I hope this will suffice.
