The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
1917 T.N. Foulis Frank Brangwyn Edition

This T.N. Foulis Rubaiyat edition is dated as being from December 1917 and has illustrations from Frank Brangwyn. The illustrations were originally oil paintings. The printed images of the paintings are of a different stock than the rest of the book.

Information on this Rubaiyat edition and pictures of this particular copy were contributed by a visitor. Thank you!

The Book Itself

The cover is a muddy green-ish hue. There are decorations surrounding the initial pages and the flyleaf is art in of itself.

The Illustrations

Frank Brangwyn’s oil painting artwork is rich and moody. The light, small poetry is positioned as if it were a caption against the illustrations.
