I need to download a database given to me with select-only permissions to import it at my localhost for editing.

How can I do that?

How about disabling authentication temporarily and doing a mysqldump?

service mysql restart --skip-networking --skip-grant-tables
mysqldump --all-databases --routines --triggers > MySQLData.sql
service mysql restart

Now, move the mysqldump file to your local machine and run this

mysql -uroot -p < MySQLData.sql

Give it a Try!
