This is a faithful transcription as near as I can tell. I have highlighted in deep red places that I don't understand and one place where I added a tempo change. I used a book entitled "Enjoy Debussy" subtitled "Piano Solos" by Charles Hansen Music and Books, 1860 Broadway NY, NY (no date). I checked a score scanned and uploaded to IMSLP with the publisher info Paris: E. Fromont, 1905. Plate E. 1403 F. and reprinted as Claude Debussy: Piano Music 1888-1905. The only differences I could find were in measures 51-52, the Hansen transcription has all notes dotted (stacato) but the Fromont scan does not. In measures 92-93, the Hansen document shows all notes in the treble staff tenuto, whereas the Fromont scan does not. I left the Tenuto but got rid of the staccato.

The tempo change was added because the music slows at measure 47 (rit.) but doesn't sound right to me after it changes musically at measure 51. Also, I think I have the overall tempo of the playback faster than most pianists play it. Personally, I think most recordings are too slow.

The things I didn't understand all involve crescendos that go from sf to mf or p to p. These didn't make sense to me, but maybe a piano player would understand.
