RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM, The Astronomer-Poet of Persia

Publisher's original quarter blue goatskin with gilt titles to the spine, purple textured silk boards. Housed in the original gold card slipcase with colour illustration laid on. Illustrated with 16 full page colour plates and 5 smaller line drawings throughout the text. A fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The slipcase remains sound with light staining to one corner rubbing at the bottom edge.

Previously published in 2009 in a signed limited edition of 1000 copies. This "trade" edition is not only beautifully produced but seemingly quite scarce.
