Item Description: Bernard Quaritch, London, 1859. First Edition. The Astronomer-Poet of Persia. Translated into English Verse. Small 4to. [208 x 159 x 5 mm]. xiii, [i], 21 pp. Bound in the original buff paper wrappers, the title printed on the front cover (backstrip expertly repaired, front cover slightly soiled and edges a little frayed). Contained in a green cloth folder within a full green goatskin pull-off case, the spine divided into six panels with bands, lettered in the second and third panels, the others tooled with a flower. [ebc3608] The edges are untrimmed and there is a little slight fraying at the foot of the first few leaves. There are also old and light creases to a few corners, but it is undeniably a very good copy in the original wrappers. The protective case is unsigned but is of the quality associated with Riviere and probably dates to c.1910. Edward Fitzgerald had 250 copies of his translation printed by G. Norman of Covent Garden, keeping 40 for himself and arranging for Quaritch to stock the rest. "How many Quaritch actually sold at a shilling we do not know, although in 1899 he, or the shop's cataloguer, maintained that it fell "absolutely dead at the published price", and by July 1861 a number were consigned to the penny-box outside Quaritch's old Castle Street premises - his new shop at 15 Piccadilly having just opened. There they attracted the attention of two literary passers-by, Whitely Stokes and John Ormsby, and through them reached Rossetti and Swinburne, and latterly (when the price had risen, as Swinburne whimsically complained "to the sinfully extravagant sum of twopence") a host of new readers, including William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, George Meredith, and John Ruskin" (Arthur Freeman, "Bernard Quaritch and "My Omar" The Struggle for Fitzgerald's Rubáiyát" in The Book Collector Special Number 1997, pp.60-75). The rest is history, and to date over 250 editions of Fitzgerald's Rubáiyát have been published. Inside the rear cover there is a pencil collation note signed by F.S. Ferguson of Bernard Quaritch and dated 19/1/1913. The book is accompanied by a cloth drop-over box and folder containing paperwork relating to this copy. It was in the library of General Brayton Ives (1840-1914), President of Northern Pacific Railway, the New York Stock Exchange and Western National Bank of New York, and owner of a Gutenberg Bible. It was sold at the American Art Galleries, New York as lot 350 on 7 April 1915. There is a letter from William Brown, Bookseller at 5 Castle Street, Edinburgh to the auctioneers ("would you care to put a price on it, & if so, how much?"), two letters and a telegram from Brown to George Napier of 7 Woodside Place, Glasgow, together with an invoice addressed to Napier for £99.16.4 (purchase price of $425, plus 10% commission, bank charges, cost of two cables and one telephone call) and a further cover note and invoice for £1.5.4 for the insurance from New York. The book next appears at Sotheby, 12 April 1954, as lot 39 ("backstrip defective and text slightly loose"), and it sold for £220 to Maggs. It reappeared at the ABA London Bookfair, June 1987 where it was was sold by The Book Block for £8000 and it has not been on the market since. Bookseller Inventory # ebc3608

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: 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. New editions and reprints continued into the 1920s" (Martin & Mason, The Art of Omar Khayyam: Illustrating Fitzgerald's Rubaiyat, 2007). Potter, Omar Khayyám, 201 note, Gascoigne, 40.

A fine copy in original slipcase. First edition, limited edition of 20 numbered copies signed by the designer, calligrapher and artist Dave Wood. A fine and handsomely produced calligraphic edition of the Rubaiyat. From the publisher's website: "This book is absolutely unique in the marketplace, given its 21st century design and interpretation of Arabic/Western themes created by Dave. Each page is jewel-like, a work of art in its own right and an absolute visual feast for the eyes. Dave Wood is recognised world wide for his works which are breathtaking in their execution and in the visual pleasure they exude. He combines his 45 years of experience as a graphic designer, typographer and world class calligrapher to expand calligraphy into a new and exciting dimension. Dave has been a pioneer in the promotion of calligraphy, originally holding the first ever solo exhibition of calligraphy in New Zealand in 1983. More recently in Australia Dave has continued to exhibit his work successfully in Galleries throughout Australia as well as overseas. Opening Australia’s first and only Calligraphy Gallery furthered his aim to have calligraphy recognised as an art form in its own right.Dave’s calligraphic artwork evokes a deep emotional response within the discerning art lover. His creative ability is portrayed by the continual development of new ideas and concepts using such mediums as paper sculptures and hand made papers to explore the wider dimensions of the written word Dave studied with Donald Jackson, Calligrapher to HM The Queen and has been a Fellow of the highly respected, London based Society of Scribes & Illuminators since 1991.".

Item Description: Siegle, Hill and Co., London, 1910. Hardcover. Book 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. The pair are better known as the founders of the eponymous firm of bookbinders established in London in 1901, considered to be one of the most important bookbinding companies of the twentieth century. 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. The book was a gift to Charles Howard Angas (1861-1928; a grandson of George Fife Angas) and his wife, from their daughter and son-in-law, Major Hon. Robert Nathaniel Dudley Ryder (1882-1917). Ryder, a Boer War veteran, was killed in action on 30 November 1917 at Villers-Faucon, near Peronne on the Western Front.
