Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Edward Fitzgerald. Illustrations by Edmund Dulac.
2nd edition published c. 1910, London by Hodder and Stoughton.
c. 150 pages. Text in English. Contains 20 tipped-in color plates featuring the wonderful linear artwork by Edmund Dulac.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. Light minor age speckling to cloth, contents clean, tight and sound. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Not to be confused with the many later reprints of this work which don't have these superior tipped in plates but rather just offset color printed one.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
