Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Edward FitzGerald, Drawings by Elihu Vedde -1894

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam,  Edward FitzGerald with an Accompaniment of Drawings by Elihu Vedder. Published by Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1894. Vedder’s edition of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With the Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork, and Vedder as a major American artist.”  Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Edward FitzGerald, Drawings by Elihu Vedder – 1894
