Item Description: Houghton, Mifflin & Company, Boston, 1884. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Elihu Vedder (illustrator). First Edition Thus. First Printing. First, Limited Edition of 100 copies, of which this is No. 22, signed by Vedder, with ornamental title page and 56 magnificent full-page Illustrations. Brown flat-weave cloth over beveled boards; front cover with gilt lettering, dark brown-stamped ruled borders, symbolist design of vase, vine, swirl and stars, spine with gilt lettering & dark brown-stamped ruled borders and ornaments; gilt and dark brown embossed stamp on front cover, lower right 'V' ; slate coated endpapers; TEG, others untrimmed. Elephant Folio. Signed by Vedder on Limitation Page. In the ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) completed a series of 54 drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, & watercolor to accompany this 1884 edition of the Rubaiyat. All of these original drawings, which were proclaimed a masterwork of American art, were included in a special exhibition of "Elihu Vedder's Drawings for the Rubaiyat" at the National Museum of American Art in 1998. The exhibition also included two first edition printings of this Rubaiyat with Vedder's "accompaniments." Vedder's edition was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With the Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. Vedder is best known for his illustrations of this edition of The Rubaiyat. He died in Rome, Italy, in 1923. [Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers, p. 972] [Morris & Levin 92] [Potter 201]. An extremely scarce, beautiful, large and heavy book. .

Item Description: Houghton Mifflin and Company, Boston, 1884. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Illustrated Edition. Inscribed by Vedder on the first blank: "My dear Mr. Haggin | I send you my autograph with the greatest pleasure and remain as always most sincerely yours | Elihu Vedder." Our suspicion is that this book was sent by then up and coming American painter, Ben Ali Haggin, to Elihu Vedder for his signature in the early 1900s. Folio (pages 15.5 x 12.5 inches): complete with lithographic frontispiece, title-page, colophon, dedication leaf, half-title and 51 plates all mounted on linen guards (as issued by publisher), and eight more leaves at the end containing the Appendix, Notes and List of Illustrations. Near Fine with minor wear at the spine ends and some soiling to the cloth. Light marginal foxing throughout, rarely touching any of the images. This is the first edition to ever illustrate the "Rubaiyat," issued at the same time as a signed limited edition of 100 copies. Each signed copy offered for $100 and each "trade" edition, such as this one, originally offered for $25. Despite the high cost, the entire print run was sold in less than a week. "Vedder's Rub?iy?t set the standard for the artist-designed book in America and England. Vedder created designs for the entire book -- its cover and lining paper, its compelling drawings, and its eccentric hand-drawn letters. A new photographic printing process translated the subtle gradations of the drawings to the printed page. Since the first English translation in 1859, hundreds of editions of the Rub?iy?t have appeared in numerous forms and many languages. But their most famous and elaborate manifestation was arranged by Elihu Vedder in 1884." (Richard Murray - Introduction to the Smithsonian';s 2008 American Art Exhibition of the original illustrations)While there are records of the signed, limited copies coming up for sale at auction, we can find no records of inscribed copies in either ABPC or Americana Exchange.

Item Description: London Siegle Hill and Co. n.d. circa 1910, 1910. First Edition, LIMITED, reproduced from a manuscript written and illuminated by F. Sangorski and G. Sutcliffe. This is one of only 550 copies only SIGNED by both Mssrs. Sangorski and Sutcliffe. With 12 plates printed in gold and full colour, text printed in black and red, with elaborated initials, boarders and decoration throughout in silver, gold, red, blue, brown and black also with decorative endpapers designed in colours. Large 4to, original full vellum with a dark burgundy morocco lettering label gilt on the spine, the upper cover and spine elaborately decorated with an all-over gilt design featuring most prominently the distinctive Sangorski and Sutcliffe peacock within an elaborate oriental frame and with rich floral tooling, t.e.g. Unpaginated. A very nice copy of this magnificent book, internally fine and fresh, the colour plates in excellent condition, the vellum with just the lightest mellowing, the morocco spine label with some minor evidence of chipping at the edges. With the provenance of Sir Edwin Cooper Perry and Lady Perry, and with manuscript presentation to them on the front free-fly. The first book publication of the famous Sangorski and Sutcliffe illuminated manuscript. With an introduction, life of the author, and notes. The illuminations in this manuscript are of exquisite patterns executed in Sangorski’s best style. The initials are quite breathtaking. The colours used, heightened with burnished gold, and the delicate borders are in the manner of the finest manuscripts. A brilliant example of Sangorski and Sutcliffe’s workmanship. The binding calls to mind some of the designs for jeweled bindings that Sangorski and Sutcliffe executed. A similar peacock motif was used on their binding for the RUBAIYAT which now lies on the ocean floor somewhere within the wreckage of the White Star Liner Titanic. Bookseller Inventory # 25479

Edward Fitzgerald first translated 75 quatrains into English in 1859, taking some creative liberties with the work. In later editions, Fitzgerald added additional quatrains, but this Pogany edition contains just the original 75 in beautiful calligraphy. Very Good +. Bookseller Inventory # 926

Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for "Illustrated Brits" and created cartoons 'Pick-Me-Up' from 1893. In 1896 Bull joined Black and White illustrated newspaper as a special artist and photographer. In 1898 he covered the Tirah Campaign in India and went on to Sudan for the campaign culminating in the Battle of Omdurman. He settled in England and drew cartoons for such magazines as 'Bystander', 'Chums', 'London Opinion' 'Lika Joko'. In 'The Sketch" Bull created cartoons of humorous inventions, predating those of Heath Robinson. From 1905 he illustrated books, starting with an edition of Fontaine's 'Fables'. Other major titles he illustrated included The Arabian Nights (1912), Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (1913), The Russian Ballet (1913), Carmen (1915), Andersen's Fairy Tales. Bookseller Inventory # 02793
