        The Digressions of V: Written for His Own Fun and that of his Friends (Two Volumes)

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston and NY 1910 - First, limited edition, signed and numbered by Vedder. This is Number 333 of only 525. Bound in publisher's full vellum, gilt lettering on spine, intricate embossed blue and gilt decoration and borders on covers, T.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Profusely illustrated with over a hundred etchings, engravings, gravures, drawings and photographs, all beautifully reproduced and printed on Japan vellum, some tissue-protected, some tipped-in, and a special original drawing made especially by Vedder for this edition, of which only 525 were printed and then the plate destroyed. In addition to Vedder's signature on the limitation page, this copy has an original four-line holograph poem signed by Vedder in Rome on April 14, 1911. Designed by Bruce Rogers. Elihu Vedder (1836 – 1923) was an American symbolist painter, book illustrator, and poet, born in New York City. He is best known for his fifty-five illustrations for Edward FitzGerald's translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (deluxe edition, 1884, published by Houghton Mifflin). Vedder had a home in Rome and - after the financial success of his 1884 Rubaiyat work - on the Isle of Capri, then a haven for male aesthetes. He decorated the hallway of the Reading Room of the Washington Library of Congress, and his mural paintings can still be seen there. In 2008, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington organized an exhibition of Vedder's Rubaiyat illustrations that toured several museums, including the Phoenix Art Museum. Vedder describes this book as "containing the quaint legends of his infancy, an account of his stay in Florence, the garden of lost opportunities, return home on the track of Columbus, his struggle in New York in war-time coinciding with that of the nation, his prolonged stay in Rome, and likewise his prattlings upon art, tamperings with literature, struggles with verse, and many other things, being a portrait of himself from youth to age. With many illustrations by the author." . Boards lightly soiled, minor shelf-wear. Bindings and hinges tight and strong, all contents clean and unmarked. An extremely nice copy of this handsome and scarce edition. NEAR FINE. . 4to 11" - 13" tall. xxi, 249; vi, 272 pp. Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
