About this Item

Large quarto, about 60 pgs, illustrated with 12 magnificent color plates by F. Sangorski & G. Sutcliffe. Illuminated letters. White cloth with elaborate gold illustration of a peacock and decorative border. Top edge gold. This is perhaps the most famous production of Fitzgerald's work, featuring the illuminations of Alberto Sangorski, brother of Francis Sangorski, who, with George Sutcliffe, founded the famous British bookbinding firm Sangorski and Sutcliffe. The Rubaiyat was one of the most famous works by this firm, and one early copy was bound in green levant morocco with sunken panels, elaborate giltwork, thousands of pieces of leather inlay, and 1050 gems, including rubies, garnets and topaz; the lower front cover was decorated with an image of a mandolin created with inlays of mahogany, satinwood, ebony and ivory. This binding, which took craftsmen two years to produce, was lost on the Titanic; another version of it was lost during World War II. This trade edition of their work is beautiful enough, with 12 color plates, decorated initial letters, and printed in red and black with a finely caligraphed text. Hardcover. 9.5"x12.5", about 60 pages; 12 color illustrations or plates; original grandly decorated covers with a gilt peacock swirling his tail Near fine condition. Small light green spot near bottom of back strip. Bookseller Inventory # 2043

Terms of Sale:

BOOKS SHIPPED WITHIN MISSOURI are subject to a 8.450 sales tax. Books shipped outside of the US are subject to a small surcharge.

Shipping Terms:


Orders to be shipped outside the US can be paid for either a) through ABE, in which case there will be a surcharge of about 5-10% due to the very high postal shipping charges by the U.S. Post Office, and the fact that ABE's fees apply both to the price of the book and the shipping; or, b)you can pay by way of PayPal, in which case there is no surcharge.  If you choose to pay via ABE I will inform you of the amount of the surcharge as an 'extra charge,' which you can either accept or cancel the order.

 Domestically, you can order the book through ABE, and if possible, pay via PayPal or through ABE.

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Since recent changes in postal rates, shipping overseas has become very expensive and the cost unpredictable, depending as much on size and shape of a book as weight.  The matrix prices are very unreliable.  All packages now go Priority Mail (airmail).  Contrary to the matrix, there is no 'standard' rate offered by the post office here.  In general (there are exceptions)smaller books (octavos) weighing less than 4 pounds, can generally be shipped for $24.75.  Larger books, in general, are $61.75 though this price may be a bit higher or lower.  Shipping to Canada is considerably less. Please contact me before ordering and I will send you the actual shipping cost.  Please do not rely on the matrix. Also, all books now go Air Mail, and the Post Office estimates delivery in 6-10 days.  There is no longer any ground service.  Insurance (where available) is optional.
