Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (Book in a Bag)
A 1940s hard back with dust jacket reprint of the nineteenth century translation by Edward Fitzgerald. The original text, in Persian, is attributed to Omar Khayyam who lived from 1048 – 1131 AD. This is beautifully illustrated with a romantic use of the English language; a delightful ‘must have’ for anyone who is a fan of the Pre – Raphaelites for whom this was a very popular text.
£10 including UK postage and charming bag with handmade felt heart
