The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
Unknown Year Harrap Pogany Riverside Press with Brown Cover Edition

This George G. Harrap edition with Willy Pogany illustrations looks remarkably similar on the inside to this 1931 edition, also done by The Riverside Press.

This copy was originally owned by the visitor’s great aunt, who was a nurse and founder member of the Royal College of Nursing. It was given to her by a long time friend and fellow nurse.

This edition and its photos were contributed by a visitor. Thank you!
