The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

translated by Edward Fitzgerald,

1913

 This book measures 6" x 3 3/8" and has 54 pages. The text is set in Scotch Roman and is printed in two colors on Spanish laid paper. The binding is stamped leather. The calligraphic title page remind me of Dard Hunter's work, although I don't believe it is.
