London: Bernard Quaritch, 1859. First Edition in English. The translator was not credited in this edition. Issued in a small edition of 250 copies, this number was more than adequate to meet the anemic demand; not re-issued until nearly a decade later. This poetry was previously unknown to English readers, and Fitzgerald’s translation (a very free one) was to become the standard version of one of the most reprinted volumes of poetry. Bound without the publisher’s wrappers in a magnificent, ornate binding by Riviere: Edmund Gosse’s bookplate and a page of unrelated Fitzgerald ms. are bound in. Full tan morocco; front board decorated with an inlaid color illustration of a woman (presumably Eve) surrounded by apple trees and a serpent; gilt peacock borders; the rear board features a goblet intertwined with a serpent; gilt peacock borders; raised bands; gilt decorated compartments; all edges gilt. In the original matching slipcase.

Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1884. Vedder, Elihu. 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 dea ... Read more
