Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám
illustrations and decorations by Willy Pogány
George G. Harrap, [No Date] circa 1940
Nice little ‘Rubáiyát’ in attractive binding.
Hardback – leather/faux-leather binding with nice decoration to spine and front board, page block with top edge gilt. 95pp including b/w illustrations and four colour plates. 5 x 3.5 inches approx. (128mm x 89mm).
Boards a touch ‘bowed’, faded and a little scuffed to rear. A neat inscription in ink to front free endpaper (usefully dated 1940); pages foxed throughout, quite heavy in places.
Overall, showing some wear commensurate with age and handling but otherwise remains a reasonably nice copy.
