The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Khayyám, Omar

The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

Khayyám, Omar

Twenty-eight photographic illustrations by Adelaide
Hanscom. An early example of art photography illustrating classic
literary texts and, a first for Americans, photographs depicting
male nudes. A sensation on first publication, reprinted quickly in
deluxe editions, coloured plates and elaborate bindings.. This is an
early, basic edition, before Blanche Cummings was also credited
with the photographs, containing some sepia prints, text on card,
prints on tissue.
