Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, the Astonomer Poet of Persia. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitgerald. With an accompaniment of drawings by Elihu Vedder
Houghton Mifflin at the Riverside Press, Boston 1894 - Publisher's gray cloth illustrated, decorated, ruled and titled in bright gilt and black on upper board and spine, boards slightly beveled, floral end-papers, t.e.g., in publisher's printed dust-wrapper; unpaginated, but [59] photo-lithographed plates (including frontis, title, and dedication pages) followed by 61 pp. of text, all on folded pages with the bolts at the fore-edge. But for a little rubbing at the spine tips and corners, book is fine, without flaw; jacket is likewise lovely, with a tiny chip out at the spine head and two larger chips out at the bottom edge of the front panel and lower front flap join; A stunning example of the "Octavo" edition, issued ten years after the "Folio" edition sold out in only 6 days, and scarce in the jacket [Attributes: Hard Cover]
