Philosopher, astronomer and mathematician, Khayyam as a poet possesses a singular originality.

This translation by Peter Avery and John Heath-Stubbs is beautifully and lavishly illustrated in colour with numerous examples of Persian miniature painting. It also contains a valuable introduction and several appendices, including an essay on Persian painting.
