The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
1979 Reprint Collins Sherriffs Edition

This Collins edition has the stunning artwork of Robert Stewart Sherriffs, the texts of the First, Second, and Fifth edition, and a ton of extra content: notes, introductions, bios, comparative tables, an index of the first lines of the quatrains, and a glossary. It’s robustly built (including a box!) and is well laid out. It has pretty much everything in it.

If you want one copy with great artwork and content, plus more than one edition of the translation, this is a fantastic option.

I purchased this copy off of a visitor. Thank you!
