The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
1900s? Harrap Willy Pogany Limited Edition

This is it. This is the crowning jewel of my collection. A copy of a limited edition run of 525 copies. I think mine is number either 44, 41, or 47–the numbering is a bit…hard to discern. And it looks to be signed by Willy Pogany himself.

I had Scott Kellar repair it. The binding was in a bit of rough shape so he reinforced it with tissue. The lithographs of the artwork were reattached with archival tape.

It’s a stunning edition. The pages are ornately decorated. The type is beautiful. The artwork is magnificent. I am lucky to have such a copy.
