Item Description: Pogany, Willy (illustrator). Translated and Annotated by His Friend and Pupil Sir Richard Burton. Introduction by Dhan Gopal Mukerji. Illustrated by Willy Pogany. Philadelphia: David McKay Company (1931). Quarto, black cloth stamped in silver and with gravure illustration by Pogany inset on front cover. 129 pages, with thirteen full page gravure illustrations by Willy Pogany. A very good copy of the First Pogany-illustrated edition, but lacking the original dust wrapper. Willy Pogany (1882-1955) was born in Hungary, where he studied engineering at the University of Budapest He abandoned his studies of engineering and traveled to Paris where he did caricatures for the periodicals, and then to London in 1906 to pursue a career in illustration. He seems to have enjoyed instant success with his first commission "The Adventures of a Dodo," followed by the "Welsh Fairy Book," "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," "Tannhauser," and "Arabian Nights," In 1915 he came to America and continued with success in the field of book illustration, while also designing murals and stage settings, and the interiors of several large hotels. His technique was essentially decorative, much like his contemporary, Dulac, and exerted a distinct influence upon pictorial and decorative art. The Kasidah is a philosophic poem that begins with a vivid description of the desert and a waking caravan, proceeds to an exposition of the brevity of man's life and the senseless cruelty which has marked our evolution, and moves finally to the conclusion: "That man must forever be willing to learn, to know and to unknow; that reason must be his arbiter; that self-salvation through self-expression must be his goal; and finally that of life's two possible paths, it is not 'the primrose path' of dalliance but the one leading to daily battle with ignorance that is worthy of man's journeying." The poem was actually not a translation at all, but written by Burton himself, and originally printed by Quaritch in an edition of 100 copies in 1880. Bookseller Inventory # 9442
