- (POGANY,WILLY)illus. RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM. NY: Thomas Crowell, [1930]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10 1/4"), gilt decorated salmon colored cloth, top edge gilt, MINT IN DUST WRAPPER AND PUBLISHER'S BOX (box with some wear but VG). 1st edition of this new Pogany edition. The 1st & 4th renderings in English by Fitzgerald are illustrated with 12 beautiful tipped-in color plates plus 45 mounted gold and black plates and b&w's in- text. According to a publishers booklet interviewing Pogany, he notes 'My last Omar pictures? Yes they are quite different from the Omar Khayyam that I did in London years ago. But I think they are just as true to the oriental spirit. I have westernized and modernized Omar more, but perhaps I have interpreted him more nearly to our present day readers.' Great copy, rare in the box. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
