About this Item: Houghton Mifflin and Company, Boston, 1884. Vedder, Elihu (illustrator). Folio. (57), (viii)ff. First deluxe edition. One of 100 copies, printed on Japanese paper and signed by the artist on the limitation page. The fifty-seven Art-Nouveau illustrations, drawn in pencil, ink, chalk, and watercolor over ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, are here printed on Japanese paper using a then-new photographic printing process which could accurately reproduce the subtle gradations of the originals. Each image is mounted on a larger folded sheet for binding, leaving large margins to frame the image at the center. Vedder's design work is not just limited to the illustrations, but includes everything from the hand-written text to the design of the binding and endpapers. Eight pages at the end of the book have printed notes and an index of illustrations.The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, a loose collection of quatrains, was first translated from Persian to English in 1859 by Edward Fitzgerald, over 700 years after the death of the author. It is clear that the most celebrated manifestation of Fitzgerald's translation is this 1884 arrangement by Elihu Vedder. Born in America, Vedder was one of the first artists of his generation to train in Paris. This training in the Academic style, with its emphasis on the classically proportioned female nude, combined with his penchant for mystical imagery and "visionary" style created the perfect style for the Rubaiyat, blending grounded, accurate reality with the excesses of feeling and emotion. Perhaps the emotion so evident in his drawings stems from the fact that the Rubaiyat was intensely personal for Vedder. After twice experiencing the loss of one of his children followed by the birth of another child within the year, he sought and found answers in Khayyam's message that the meaning of life was life itself and that death and renewal are part of that cycle. Vedder's rearrangement of the stanzas to fall into three sections-joy, death, and rebirth-echoes this revelation. Vedder also channels this conception into his art, which combines Christian and Classical figures with mystical imagery, like the "cosmic swirl," which he describes as "gradual concentration of elements that combine to form life; the sudden pause through the reverse of the movement which marks the instant of life; and then the gradual, ever-widening dispersion again of those elements into space."The first edition of Vedder's interpretation, which comprised both this deluxe edition and a regular edition with a printed cover and typeface text, was released in Boston on November 8, 1884, and sold out within six days. Later editions were smaller and used a half-tone screen process, meaning that only this first edition has truly fine renderings of Vedder's work. Interestingly, this is the text block that was used in Sangorski and Sutcliffe's legendary (but unlucky) jeweled binding, The Great Omar. In the original gilt-tooled morocco binding, with decorated silk doublures and large, elaborately gilt dentelles. A.e.g. Housed in a custom drop-back box. Foxing to the paper used to mount the illustrations, but rarely on the illustrations themselves, else a near fine copy of Vedder's masterwork.

About this Item: Houghton, Mifflin & Company, Boston, 1884. Hard Cover. 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. Bound in original 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 and dark brown-stamped ruled borders and ornaments; gilt and dark brown embossed stamp on front cover, lower right 'V' ; slate coated endpapers; t.e.g., 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 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. [Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers, p. 972] [Morris & Levin 92] [Potter 201]. An extremely rare, beautiful, large and heavy book. Expertly refurbished in its original Vedder-designed binding. NEAR FINE. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Unpaginated pp. Signed by Illustrator. Seller Inventory # 1423

About this Item: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913. First edition. Number 244 of 250 deluxe copies signed by the artist. Large 4to. Publisher's full white vellum with elaborate decoration to the upper cover stamped in gilt and blue, whilst the spine is lettered in gold. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. A near fine copy. This is a beautifully designed book. Printed on rectos only, many text pages have decorative blue borders. There are ten full page colour plates (one with a light corner crease) mounted within gold borders and protected by captioned tissue guards. Plus 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. This deluxe edition was published at £2/2- and was an immediate success. 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."

About this Item: Siegle, Hill and Co., London, 1910. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [1910]. Folio (343 x 262 mm), [92] pages of facsimile manuscript calligraphy plus 12 full-page colour plates of pages of illuminated manuscript. Heavily gilt-pictorial full vellum (featuring a large and elaborately-figured peacock), with a gilt-lettered leather title-label on the spine; top edge gilt, others uncut; vellum a little marked; front board a little bowed; front flyleaf lightly creased; overall a very good copy (internally fine). Number 115 of 550 copies signed by both Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe.

Francis Sangorski (1875-1912) died prematurely in a drowning accident. This copy is inscribed on the initial blank 'C.H. & L.E. Angas from Bob & Beryl'; the Angas family armorial bookplate is mounted below the inscription.

Ryder, a Boer War veteran, was killed in action on 30 November 1917 at Villers-Faucon, near Peronne on the Western Front.

About this Item: Cambridge: Galloway & Porter, 1914, 1914. Large octavo. Original black cloth, titles and decoration gilt to spine and front cover, top edge gilt. Slight rubbing to the ends and corners, endpapers toned but the rest sound and clean, an excellent copy. Illustrated title, 15 plates with text and illustration, 15 plates with illustration and captioned tissue guards. First Sett edition, one of 250 copies printed, of this scarce privately printed Rubaiyat illustrated by Parsee artist Mera Ben Kavas Sett. In his lengthy foreword Sett stakes his claim that his Rubaiyat "is original in being the interpretation of a Persian (Parsee)", and also notes that "Some of the English publishers found the work 'too shocking' and 'one likely to hurt the susceptibility of the decent-minded English people'. They were ready to bring out my Omar if I changed a few pictures at their dictate and tastes, but I would not so much as a single line or a dot. It seems the English (according to the publishers) would rather have the conventional fig-leaf than a cluster of roses. I stated my case to my generous father. With his usual kindness and generosity, he offered to stand the piper to the tune of a private publication." Sett's Omar made sufficient impression to receive the encomium of Rupert Brooke (who died early in 1915): "If Mr Sett has not been universally acclaimed as the greatest draughtsman and decorator living, the fault lies with his own exclusive and publicity shunning nature. His Omar will have the pride of place in my library". Seller Inventory # 121435
