Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam | Hodder and Stoughton, 1919 | Illustrated by Edmund Dulac | Twenty Plates | Red Cloth

 

Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald
with illustrations by Edmund Dulac
Hodder and Stoughton, [November, 1919]*

The first Dulac illustrated ‘Rubáiyát’ was first published in 1909 as a signed and limited edition in a vellum binding, and a trade edition in a white buckram binding. This copy a later printing in red cloth with the same gilt design but with plain endpapers and the text borders in pale green, otherwise seemingly identical to the first edition.
