Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

£75.00

Product description

Undated but thought to be early 20th century. Dark red cloth hard covers with gilt peacock and elephant decoration on the front and gilt titles on the front and spine. The boards are well handled with edge and corner wear and darkening around the margins of the front; lightly discoloured front and spine; wear and bumping to the top and base of the spine; two small ink blots near the base of the front board one of which has travelled round the edge and just touches the front pastedown. There is a larger ink blot on the rear board on the lower edge which extends round to the rear pastedown and has spread to part of the lower edge of the text block, but apart from the last free endpaper has hardly touched the text pages themselves. Occasional foxing. The front hinge is cracked at the fly-title page and the rear hinge is cracked at the corresponding place just before the back board. This is the first Hodder and Stoughton edition, printed on single sided card stock from the original second edition "by kind permission of Messrs. MacMillan & Co. Ltd." and is the 20 tissue guarded tipped-in plate edition (some later editions only had 12 plates). The illustrations are by Edmund Dulac; the coloured plates and borders are printed by Henry Stone and Son Ltd. of Banbury and are still in Fine condition. Small gift inscription on first free endpaper.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
