by Khayyam, Omar

Condition: See description


Boston: Houghton Mifflin & Company , 1884. First Edition. Folio, gilt-decorated illustrated brown cloth (hardcover), unpaged. 56 plates, decorations. Vedders’ presentation of the Rubaiyat is possibly the most important and influential illustrated book ever produced. In it he set standards for both book design and format that have been equal to any published work for more than a century. Very Good; clean and tight with some foxing, in original (but worn) illustrated clamshell box and original illustrated dust jacket (with some chips), protected in a mylar cover.
