The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
1920s? Hodder and Stoughton Edmund Dulac Edition

No exact date given to this edition. Some sellers approximate 1920s, so that’s what I went with.

Wonderful art from Dulac…nothing new there, but the colors come through strong on the attached plates. Henry Stone & Son did the plates and borders.

The typeface is crisp and fits with the aesthetic.

Each quatrain art has a page marking it and protecting it, which is interesting.

Update 07/2023: Updated the layout, added pictures, and tweaked page copy.
