Item Description: Houghton, Mifflin & Company, Boston, 1884. Hard Cover. Book 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. Bookseller Inventory # 1423

Item Description: 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.

Item Description: Boston: Houghton Mifflin And Company, 1884, 1884. Square folio. Original brown cloth over bevelled boards, gilt lettered spine and front cover, elaborate Art Nouveau design in gilt on front cover, top edges gilt, decorated pastedowns, dark slate-green coated endpapers. Ownership inscription on first free binder's blank, wear to extremities, small abrasion and rubbing to spine, a few marks to rear cover inner joints strengthened, pink stain in upper outer corner of first 5 leaves, slight marginal foxing; still a very good copy. Frontispiece, decorative title page, colophon, dedication, divisional title, 48 plates illustrating the text, 3 pages of notes within decorative borders (a total of 56 plates complete). First edition, first printing. The drawings and text in this edition are reproduced by Albertype process, now termed collotype, an "exacting but very rewarding process" suitable only for short runs, no longer commonly used. Elihu Vedder (1836–1923) was an American Symbolist artist who trained in New York, Paris, and Italy and became friends with authors such as Herman Melville and Walt Whitman. Strongly influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as the mysticism of William Blake and W. B. Yeats, Vedder became known for his allegorical paintings of women and was also commissioned to produce glassware and sculptures for Tiffany. The first edition of this Rubáiyát was so popular that it sold out in six days, and it made Vedder's name as a leading American illustrator. "When Houghton Mifflin commissioned Elihu Vedder to illustrate The Rubáiyát, they employed an artist with a rich sense of classical interpretation. Vedder spent 11 months in Rome fulfilling the commission, producing monochrome illustrations in a Greco-Roman style, which caused the London journal Athenaeum to describe Vedder as the latest follower of Michelangelo. Nonetheless, the Grove Art Online encyclopaedia comments on the Vedder drawings as 'some of the earliest examples of Art Nouveau in America'. Houghton Mifflin reissued the Vedder Rubáiyát in different formats in 1886.
