About this Item: Houghton, Mifflin & Company, Boston, 1884. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. 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.

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.

About this Item: New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1922, 1922. Quarto. Original black quarter cloth, spine lettered and blocked in gilt, patterned paper sides, orange decorative endpapers, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Jacket spine slightly toned and chipped at extremities, repaired short closed-tear at head of front panel, slight bumping to spine ends of binding, small white mark to top edge, a few very minor finger-soiling marks. A particularly nice copy in the dust jacket. Frontispiece, 18 tissue-guarded plates and half-title design by Fish, printed in gold and colours, title page and decorative initials printed in orange and black. First US edition of the Annie Fish Rubáiyát, the UK edition was published the same year; copies with the dust jacket are decidedly scarce. Anne Harriet Fish (1890-1914) was one of the wittiest and most trenchant cartoonist-illustrators of the 20s. She studied under John Hassall, at the London School of Art and in Paris. Her greatest vogue was in the 20s and 30s when she was a staple of Tatler, Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar and American Vanity Fair, where she most notably illustrated advice on social climbing by Dorothy Parker. The Dutch illustrator and writer Cornelis Veth considered her "one of the most important social satirists of the day. He wrote that she depicted modern society with modern boldness. Today her economical and polished designs come across as amusingly sharp, satirical commentaries on the flapper lifestyle" (cited in Peppin & Mickelthwait). This is a transmuted here into a captivating Jazz Age Rubáiyát, "a sumptuous edition" (ODNB), superbly printed at the Curwen Press, the plates, printed by the specialist colour printers George Gibbons and Co., of Leicester, capturing faithfully Fish's incisive line and displaying a fine depth of colour. Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, p. 136; Peppin & Micklethwait, Dictionary of British Book Illustrators: The Twentieth Century, pp. 101-02; Potter, Bibliography of the Rubáiyát, 118.

Housed in a custom quarter morocco slipcase with cloth slipcover. Inscription on the front end paper from Harry D. Sickles to David Zork in 1925. Zork was a well-known Chicago antiques dealer, Sickles is best known for entering into a partnership with Eugene Field II to forge countless documents during the 20s or 30s. Bookplate of Harry H. Schwartz, owner of National Departments Stores. A beautiful production with an interesting provenance. Fitzgerald attributed the original work to the famed astronomer and mathematician Omar Khayyum, and this collection of quatrains rapidly became a favored text of the Pre-Raphaelites. "Like the Odyssey or the Vita Nuova [it] was once the most widely known and quoted work of Victorian poetry in the world," and its place in Western culture at the time was secured by Fitzgerald's "epigrammatic, sophisticated, often mordant verses [that] display Fitzgerald's adroitness in handling this stanza form" (Warner). Yet with rise of Modernism, the Rubaiyat fell out of style for a time, its lush and romantic orientalism considered out of step with the concerns of those who were living through a devastating World War. But the beautiful surviving copies in exceptional vellum, silk, and leather, alongside recently released critical editions, have helped draw attention back to the Rubaiyat's beauty and its role in inspiring so many monumental pieces of Victorian art and literature. Near Fine. Seller Inventory # 2452

About this Item: Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1909. Magnificent first trade edition of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald and with illustrations by Edmund Dulac. Quarto, original publisher's gold-stamped cloth, gilt tltles and tooling to the spine, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers, title page on Japanese vellum, with 20 intricate full color plates tipped in to decorated Japaneses vellum mounts with lettered tissue guards. In near fine condition. Eleventh-century Persian poet and mathematician Omar Khayyam composed more than one thousand quatrains, or rubaiyat, on love and mortality, expressing an enigmatic theology that has been interpreted and disputed over the course of centuries. Scholar Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883), first translator and author of five separate English versions of the Rubaiyat, did not produce strict translations as much as loose "transmogrifications" of the poetry, often taking great liberties with the original Persian text. Nevertheless, he remains the most famous of Omar Khayyam's translators, and is credited with bringing the Rubaiyat to broad public notice in the English-speaking world. Seller Inventory # 109728

About this Item: ont> Macmillan and Co : London, 1906. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. A very finely bound copy of this famous poem by the Persian philosopher and poet Omar Khayyam. An English language edition translated by the noted Edward Fitzgerald. 'The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam' was the title that Edward Fitzgerald gave to his 1859 translation of the Persian quatrains attributed to Omar Khayyam. Fitzgerald's was the first English translation. However, Fitzgerald's translations are fairly loose, he referred to his work on them as 'transmogrification'. Some consider that his translation of 'Rubaiyat' could be considered as Fitzgerald's own original poetry that are simply loosely based on Khayyam's quatrains. An extremely bright copy of this work, in a fine crushed morocco binding by Bickers and Son. Their binder's stamp to the verso of front endpaper. With fascinating provenance. This copy contains anecdotes regarding a first printing of this title. To the verso of front endpaper there is an article from 'The Bookseller' tipped in dated 1910. It explains the circumstance of Mr W J Wintle, managing director of Messrs John Ouseley Ltd. He discovered a rare first printing of Fitzgerald's 'Omar Khayyam' in the original covers. He paid threepence and then sold it at Sotheby's for £49. Below this there is a list of copies for sale of this work at Maggs and Quaritch. To the recto of front free end-paper is the receipt addressed to Wintle for this item selling at Sotheby's on July 27 1910. In Wintle's own hand he recounts the tale mentioned in 'The Bookseller'. It is possible that this later edition belonged to Wintle. A finely bound copy of this notable poem. Condition: In a full crushed morocco binding. Externally, excellent with just some minor fading to the spine which is common in this colour. Internally, firmly bound. Ephemera pasted to the front endpapers. Pages are extremely bright and clean. Overall Condition: Fine. Seller Inventory # 065328

About this Item: Grant Richards, London, 1897. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. London, Grant Richards, 1897. Tall octavo (237 × 120 mm), xvi, 86 pages. Contemporary craft binding (signed by Margaret Chapman with her initials at the rear) of full blind-tooled morocco; spine in compartments hand-tooled with a motif of grapes and small flowers (repeated on the turn-ins); sides bordered with double fillet, and featuring an integrated design extending inwards from the spine; tooling somewhat uneven (likely an irregularity in the heating of the tool or wetting of the leather when drawing out its colour); leather lightly marked and rubbed; top edge dyed, others uncut; minimal light foxing to a few pages, and a small light inkmark to one bottom margin; an excellent copy. The following is printed on the verso of the half-title, facing the title page: 'Of this book there is a very limited edition printed on Japanese vellum numbered and signed by the Author'. This copy is not numbered or signed, nor is it printed on Japanese vellum, so it may well be a copy of the text block of the trade edition. The paper is watermarked '1895 Unbleached Arnold', one of the earliest manufactured imitation handmade papers. Margaret Chapman (? - circa 1945) 'was one of the first professional craft bookbinders in Australia. She established her Sassafrass Bindery in the Dandenongs (Victoria) in the early years of the century. [She] . had trained at Melbourne's National Gallery School in 1905-06, and under the leading craft bookbinding firm of Sangorski & Sutcliffe in London. Her work dominated the bookbinding sections of the exhibitions of the Arts and Crafts Society of Victoria from its inception in 1908 until 1923 and, as one of very few practitioners of the craft, she was frequently called upon for demonstrations and for advice to those wishing to take it. In 1910 Chapman wrote an article for the Working Men's College (now RMIT) magazine in which she outlined her theories, revealing a close familiarity with the work of William Morris's firm in England and a strong understanding of and allegiance to his philosophy of craft. Chapman's work was collected by an Australian patron of Morris's firm, Mrs [Joanna] Barr-Smith of Adelaide . In 1907 Chapman entered the Women's Work Exhibition in Melbourne and won two first prizes; she was chosen to create the binding for the souvenir book of the exhibition which was presented to its patron' (Design and Art Australia Online). Perhaps not coincidentally, this charming item surfaced in Adelaide. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 118517
