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 Rubáiyát 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 Rubáiyát 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. Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 917

Item Description: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913. First edition with Rene Bull's illustrations. Large 4to. Publisher's primary binding of brown cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and gilt embossed decoration to upper cover, bordered with Persian design in blue and gilt. This copy housed in the original publisher's box and protected by the glassine wrapper. A near fine copy, with a little foxing to the preliminary leaves. All illustrations perfect. The glassine wrapper is creased, with a couple of closed tears, but has prevented the habitual wear to the joints. The publisher's box shows a couple of splits to the lid and is a little dusty, but sound. A sumptuous production. A beautifully designed book, printed on rectos only, many text pages have decorative blue borders. There are ten full page colour plates mounted within gold borders, protected by captioned tissue guards and nineteen smaller colour plates mounted in the text and numerous line drawings printed in blue. Bull's interpretation of this classic work is without doubt one of the most beautiful. A contemporary review read, "In its binding of peculiar beauty this latest Omar is a triumph of charm and intuition." Bull had worked as a war artist in many major campaigns from 1896 onwards. His first hand knowledge of Arab customs and costume helped him produce such suitable designs for this work. The Bookman reviewer described the book as having, "caught in these remarkable paintings the spirit and atmosphere of Fitzgerald's immortal adaptation; the glowing imagination, the sombre occultism, the mystery and Oriental magnificence of the poem are sensitively and glamourously expressed in this beautiful, ornately decorative work.".

Item Description: New York: Dutton & Co., 1914., 1914. The Inspiration for The Grateful Dead 1971 Album Cover"Oh, come with old Khayyám, and leave the Wise "SULLIVAN, Edmund J., illustrator. Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald. With drawings by Edmund J. Sullivan. New York: Dutton & Co., [1914]. First American Edition illustrated by Sullivan. Quarto (9 7/8 x 7 7/16 inches; 252 x 189 mm.). xvi, [300] pp. Color frontispiece with original tissue-guard and seventy-five full-page black and white illustrations. Publishers red cloth over boards, front cover and spine pictorially stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, lower edge uncut. Inner hinge expertly and almost invisibly strengthened, minor darkening to end-papers from dust-jacket flaps, but still a very fine copy, the gilt as bright and fresh as one could ever wish for. Complete with the original purple dust jacket pictorially decorated in gilt. Jacket spine faded, split along front spine fold and with minor chipping on top-edge.This is a very rare book and is the only copy we have ever seen in the original dust jacket. This first American edition was printed from the same sheets as the British edition of the previous year. The printers imprint on the last leaf reads "Howard & Jones, Ltd., Art Printers, 26-28 Bury Street, London, E.C."Edmund Joseph Sullivan (1869-1933), usually known as E. J. Sullivan, was a British book illustrator who worked in a style which merged the British tradition of illustration from the 1860s with aspects of Art Nouveau.Sullivan's style is comparable to that of Aubrey Beardsley, but is more romantic than Beardley's acerbic manner. Sullivan adapted his style to use the faux-Rococotechniques he had developed in his play-illustrations in order to combine them with bizarre images of strange fantastical figures, drawing on the genre of thegrotesque.His Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam,first published in London in 1913, then in New York in 1914 has a more modern day claim to fame. Here, among many fanciful and beautiful black-and-white drawings, he used images of skeletons and animated pots.One such 'skeleton' image (plate opposite Chapter XXVl) was appropriated by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley for a Grateful Dead poster in 1966, and album cover in 1971.

Each page is jewel-like, a work of art in its own right and an absolute visual feast for the eyes. Dave Wood is recognised world wide for his works which are breathtaking in their execution and in the visual pleasure they exude. He combines his 45 years of experience as a graphic designer, typographer and world class calligrapher to expand calligraphy into a new and exciting dimension.

More recently in Australia Dave has continued to exhibit his work successfully in Galleries throughout Australia as well as overseas. Opening Australia’s first and only Calligraphy Gallery furthered his aim to have calligraphy recognised as an art form in its own right.Dave’s calligraphic artwork evokes a deep emotional response within the discerning art lover. His creative ability is portrayed by the continual development of new ideas and concepts using such mediums as paper sculptures and hand made papers to explore the wider dimensions of the written word Dave studied with Donald Jackson, Calligrapher to HM The Queen and has been a Fellow of the highly respected, London based Society of Scribes & Illuminators since 1991.".

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'.
