Edward Fitzgerald's (of Omar Khayyam fame) two translations into English verse, of 1856 and 1879, of Jami's poem. Written in 1479 "tells of Salaman (born to Solomon without the intervention of a woman and meant to live the same way) and Absal, his nurse, who fell in love with him and eloped to a desert isle. Discovered by Solomon, who focussed first a magic mirror and then his willpower upon them, they entered a fire together; Absal was consumed, but Salaman preserved for kingship and philosophic forgetfulness".

About this Item: J. W. Parker & Son, London, 1856 First Edition. Hardback. No Dust Jacket., 1856. Large 8vo. pp 84. Original publisher's blue ripple-grain cloth, lettered gilt on spine and on front cover. Frontispiece of a primitive version of polo. First edition of Edward FitzGerald's translation, a rare precursor of the Rubaiyat. Years later, in a letter to H. S Wilson, FitzGerald recalled that Salaman 'was the first Persian poem I read, with my friend Edward Cowell, near on forty years ago: and I was. pleased with it then (and now think it almost the best of the Persian poems I have read.)'. The author Jami, who lived in the fifteenth century, was the last of the great classic poets of Persia.Of his translation, which is dedicated to Cowell, Fitzgerald remarks that 'the blank verse is too Miltonic for Oriental style'. And like the Rubaiyat, Salaman was no commercial success: 'when Parker disappeared, my unsold copies, many more than [were] sold, were returned to me; some of which, if not all, I gave to little Quaritch, who, I believe, trumpeted them off to some little profit.' (Letters, IV, 487: 1882). Prideaux, pp. 14-16 described the book as 'very scarce' as early as 1901. From theOmar Khayyam/ Edward Fitzgerald collection of Peter Wills with his small circular blind stamp - "The Fitzgerald Collection." Including the receipt from Quaritch dated 1998, loosely inserted. Neat name on front endpaper, dated 1869. Faint rubbing at spine with one page at rear carelessly opened with slight loss at top edge not affecting text, light rubbing, otherwise sound, very good.
