Item Description: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1859. First Edition. The Astronomer-Poet of Persia. Translated into English Verse. Small 4to. [208 x 159 x 5 mm]. xiii, [i], 21 pp. Bound in the original buff paper wrappers, the title printed on the front cover (backstrip expertly repaired, front cover slightly soiled and edges a little frayed). Contained in a green cloth folder within a full green goatskin pull-off case, the spine divided into six panels with bands, lettered in the second and third panels, the others tooled with a flower. [ebc3608] The edges are untrimmed and there is a little slight fraying at the foot of the first few leaves. There are also old and light creases to a few corners, but it is undeniably a very good copy in the original wrappers. The protective case is unsigned but is of the quality associated with Riviere and probably dates to c.1910. Edward Fitzgerald had 250 copies of his translation printed by G. Norman of Covent Garden, keeping 40 for himself and arranging for Quaritch to stock the rest. "How many Quaritch actually sold at a shilling we do not know, although in 1899 he, or the shop's cataloguer, maintained that it fell "absolutely dead at the published price", and by July 1861 a number were consigned to the penny-box outside Quaritch's old Castle Street premises - his new shop at 15 Piccadilly having just opened. There they attracted the attention of two literary passers-by, Whitely Stokes and John Ormsby, and through them reached Rossetti and Swinburne, and latterly (when the price had risen, as Swinburne whimsically complained "to the sinfully extravagant sum of twopence") a host of new readers, including William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, George Meredith, and John Ruskin" (Arthur Freeman, "Bernard Quaritch and "My Omar" The Struggle for Fitzgerald's Rubáiyát" in The Book Collector Special Number 1997, pp.60-75). The rest is history, and to date over 250 editions of Fitzgerald's Rubáiyát have been published. Inside the rear cover there is a pencil collation note signed by F.S. Ferguson of Bernard Quaritch and dated 19/1/1913. The book is accompanied by a cloth drop-over box and folder containing paperwork relating to this copy. It was in the library of General Brayton Ives (1840-1914), President of Northern Pacific Railway, the New York Stock Exchange and Western National Bank of New York, and owner of a Gutenberg Bible. It was sold at the American Art Galleries, New York as lot 350 on 7 April 1915. There is a letter from William Brown, Bookseller at 5 Castle Street, Edinburgh to the auctioneers ("would you care to put a price on it, & if so, how much?"), two letters and a telegram from Brown to George Napier of 7 Woodside Place, Glasgow, together with an invoice addressed to Napier for £99.16.4 (purchase price of $425, plus 10% commission, bank charges, cost of two cables and one telephone call) and a further cover note and invoice for £1.5.4 for the insurance from New York. The book next appears at Sotheby, 12 April 1954, as lot 39 ("backstrip defective and text slightly loose"), and it sold for £220 to Maggs. It reappeared at the ABA London Bookfair, June 1987 where it was was sold by The Book Block for £8000 and it has not been on the market since. Bookseller Inventory # ebc3608

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. Bound in original 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 and dark brown-stamped ruled borders and ornaments; gilt and dark brown embossed stamp on front cover, lower right 'V' ; slate coated endpapers; t.e.g., 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 drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, and 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 this Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. He died in Rome in 1923. [Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers, p. 972] [Morris & Levin 92] [Potter 201]. An extremely rare, beautiful, large and heavy book. Expertly refurbished in its original Vedder-designed binding. NEAR FINE. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Unpaginated pp. Signed by Illustrator. Bookseller Inventory # 1423

Item Description: 1918, 1918. 4to. Lvs (40). Some small watermark to inner fold of last few leaves not affecting the text. Original soft paper boards, title written in gold on upper cover, rubbed with some staining. The text is taken from Fitzgerald's first edition and is accompanied with Chinese influenced illustrations made by Will Gordon Mein. Limited to 1000 copies of which this is no. 456. The title presents this as "Lotus Library Publications No. 1" but there were no further publications. Omar Khayyam (1048-1131) was a Persian poet, astronomer and mathematician. He was mainly known in the West for his Rubaiyat translated into English by Edward FitzGerald in 1859. This is an uncommon edition with the remarkable Chinese influenced drawings that focus on opium instead of wine. Mein (1868-1939) was a British artist known in particular for illustrating works of fairy tale and fantasy. The symbolism and style of the drawings in this work are typical of Mein.
